    Description

    BEAUTIFUL GOFF IMAGE OF A YOUNG CROW GIRL. Orlando S. Goff was a successful and well-known Western photographer in the latter part of the 1800s, whose work inspired D.F. Barry to an even more successful photographic career. This beautiful portrait of a young Crow girl reveals Goff's expertise in capturing the inner serenity of his subjects; she wears a floral printed blouse and a beaded necklace and stares to her right with a calm and knowing expression. Image measures approximately 4" x 6" and is affixed to Goff's 4¼" x 6½" photo mount. On verso, a delicate border design encloses the following: "Goff Photographer, Fort Custer, Mont." Minor wear to mount corners with faint water stains along lower mount edge - neither of which affect the image.

    Provenance: The Chris Kortlander Collection

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
