CURTIS, EDWARD SHERRIFF (1865-1952) [Canon de Chelly, 1904].
Orotone, the image 11 x 14 inches (279 x 355 mm), signed in the negative (l.r.)., with the Curtis copyright statement (l.l.), housed in the original Curtis frame, with remains of the original paper backing on the rear, including the Curtis Studio printed explanatory note. A fine example, some tape retaining the original materials on the rear of the frame.
One of Curtis's most enduring images, this example is in orotone (what Curtis described as "Curt-Tones"), the process with which he is so closely identified. This image of Navajo riders was plate 28 in portfolio I of The North American Indian.
