Edward S. Curtis -      A Complete Portfolio XI
Title:
A Complete Portfolio XI "The North American Indian"
Size:
Portfolio, 18 x 22 inches
Medium:
Vintage Photogravure
 
Portfolio XI by Edward S. Curtis contains 36 images of the Nootka and Haida tribes. Each image is a hand pulled, vintage original photogravure printed in the early 1900's. Our Aspen Art Galley acquired this piece from The Hill Library, St. Paul, MN.

The Nootka Indians lived on the west coast of Canada and many of the photogravures in this set include images of coastal scenes and fishing. Edward S. Curtis photographed these tribes in 1915, about the middle of his project. The Haida tribe also lived on the Pacific West Coast between Alaska and British Columbia. The people of this tribe have a very distinct look.
