Cañon de Chelly - Navaho, 1904
Photogravure, a vintage proof printed by John Andrew & Son
11 x 15-1/2 inches (27.9 x 39.4 cm)
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 extremely scarce and each is unique.
Overall paper size 14.5 x 18.75 inches; unmounted; not framed. A few tears and minor wear along the paper's edges and in the margins; otherwise, this work remains in overall good condition.
