This is an authentic (NOT a modern reprint) vintage 1972 offset lithographic
print on art paper made directly from the original circa early 1900's
photogravure plate by the renowned photographer of the Native American Indian,
Edward S. Curtis. This is not a photogravure or chemical process print - it is
a vintage photo-mechanical offset print (also known as a photo engraving) made
directly from the original pre 1920 Edward S. Curtis photogravure plate. Rare
and out of print, the now famous 1972 printing of these photo lithograph plates
marked the first time since the early 20th century that these iconic Native
American images have been faithfully reprinted from the original large Curtis
photogravure plates, as well as matched for tonality and color. In the year of
their release, the famous photography critic and author A.D. Coleman praised
the high quality of these 1972 Edward Curtis fine art plates as being the
truest printing of the photographer's work he had ever seen, outside of the
actual original turn of the century plates. Condition of this plate is
excellent and it would frame up nicely for display.
This vintage 1972 offset print is guaranteed to be authentic and comes with a
hand signed CERTIFICATE OF AUTHENTICITY (COA) from Finephoto. Computer scans
simply cannot do justice nor render the soft color palette and rich tonality of
the actual print itself. The watermark word "Finephoto" does not appear on the
READY FOR FRAMING & DISPLAY! - The unique aesthetics of high quality offset
