    Description

    Edward S. Curtis, Photographer: Unique Vintage Proof Photogravure "Chideh" from The North American Indian. Proof prints were a crucial part of Curtis' mastering process to achieve the final state of his photogravures. As such, they are an extremely important link in the creation of The North American Indian. Proof prints are scarce and each is unique.

    "Chideh" is a wonderful head and shoulders portrait of an Apache youth gazing directly into the camera, taken originally in 1903; the image measures 11.5" x 15.5" on 14" x 17" paper. In the negative at lower left is "124-03". This became Plate 18 of Portfolio 1 and was captioned, "Chideh - Apache." Excellent condition. This lot is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from leading Curtis expert Christopher Cardozo.
