Edward S. Curtis - Maid of Dreams border=
Maid of Dreams
14 x 11 inches
Vintage Goldtone
The beautiful maid of dreams image is printed here as a goldtone. When Edward S. Curtis was asked to describe the Curt-Tone process he said:
"The ordinary photographic print, however good, lacks depth and transparency, or more strictly speaking, translucency. We all know how beautiful are the stones and pebbles in the limpid brook of the forest where water absorbs the blue of the sky and the green of the foliage, yet when we take the same iridescent pebbles from the water and dry then they are dull and lifeless, so it is with orthodox photographic print, but in the Cur-tones all the translucency is retained and they are as full of life and sparkle as an opal."
