CURTIS, EDWARD SHERRIFF (1868-1952) An Acoma Woman,
. Glass plate positive (with number from negative x1170-04) for the photogravure from Portfolio 16, plate 572 of the North American Indian. Approximately 14 x 17 inches (203 x 431 mm). Two very small losses to the photographic surface at right. Housed in a custom wall-mount light box.
The photogravures for Curtis's North American Indian were prepared from these glass plate positives, and relatively few of these are still extant. They display an extraordinary depth of detail, having been prepared with great care for his epic publication.
