    Description

    IMPRESSIVE PLATINUM PRINT OF WILD WEST SHOW INDIANS. Richly detailed platinum image of two warriors from Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show as they stand behind the scenes, ready for their entrance. They wear breech cloths, feathered leggings, beaded moccasins, and hold beaded/leather-bound war staffs; one also holds a war shield with feathers attached. Waiting for their cue, the performers stand at the back of the show area behind large fabric screens. In the background, several individuals can be seen peeking through holes in the screens to watch the show. Image measures 9½" x 7¾" and is affixed to a larger mat board measuring 12" x 10". Photograph by H.M. Smith of Chicago, signed by Smith at lower right corner of backing board. Moderate damage to upper right edge of backing board, but otherwise in wonderful condition. An exceptional image suitable for matting and framing. From The Chris Kortlander Collection
