"A Foggy Day - Kotzebue" Large Photogravure by Edward S. Curtis, 1928

$ 4,680
  • Description
    This Edward Curtis 1928 photogravure by the Suffolk Engraving Company is from Curtis' original photograph. It depicts a Native American family in their sailing canoe leaving the shoreline on Kotzebue Sound in Northwest Artic Alaska in the early twentieth century during foggy conditions. Kotzebue was historically a Native trading area for inland and coastal Native American and First Nations settlements and with Russian, Canadian, American, and English traders. Three major rivers from the interior meet a Kotzebue, making this area an ideal trading hub. Curtis gained his fame by photographing Native American and First Nations Canadian people in their traditional dress and activities. Native fashion and tools are prominent features of his photographs. Along the bottom of the photogravure is "A Foggy Day - Kotzebue", and in smaller print, "From Copyright Photograph 1928 by E.S. Curtis", and to the right, "Photogravure, Suffolk Eng. Co., Cambridge, Mass".
    This photogravure is from a collector who had homes in Rhode Island and Vermont. It is framed under glass in a newer large mat and a plain black-painted metal frame with very slight chipping of the paint. The image is in good condition. The photogravure is framed under glass which makes it look blurry to my camera as the camera focuses only on the surface of the glass. In person, the photogravure is fine and is not blurry; I did not remove the photogravure from its frame and glass.
    The sight dimensions of the photogravure are: 17.25"W x 18.5"W; the overall framed dimensions are listed below.
