The Master Prints of Edward S. Curtis: Portraits of Native America
UNITED STATES
SALEM, MASSACHUSETTS  •  Peabody Essex Museum  •  Ongoing
 
 
The Master Prints of Edward S. Curtis: Portraits of Native America features more than sixty-five of these magnificent 14-by-17-inch platinum prints, set in salon-style art nouveau mounts, many signed by the artist. The prints, which remain in pristine condition, have rarely been shown since 1906. The exhibition includes a poignant portrait of Red Cloud, the legendary Oglala warrior and chief, in his last years, and a broodingly intelligent portrait of Chief Joseph of the Nez Perce in ceremonial dress. It also includes many images of Native American women, at work carrying water or making bread, with their children, or alone sitting for a portrait.
