Plate 624 Cree Tipis
Portfolio, 22 x 18 inches
The Cree people lived in tipis, typical of the plains. In this photogravure by Edward Curtis we see two beautifully constructed tipis backed by a thin tree line. One Native is entering her tipi in the front. This photo was taken in 1926 and is printed on Dutch Van Gelder. This landscape is on display in our Aspen Art Gallery, among many other historical artworks.
