Plate 545 Lahla ("Willow") - Taos
Portolio, 18 x 22 inches
This handsome Taos man has strong Native American features framed by a white draping around his head. Looking off to the side and slight upwards this man looks as if he is longing for something, perhaps the past. The lighting is ethereal giving him an almost god-like appearance. Contrasted by the dark brown background, this portrait stands out as one of Edward S. Curtis’ finest works.
