  • Original vintage prints by Edward Sheriff Curtis and his studio showcase an expertise with techniques that include fine examples of photogravures, albumen prints, gelatin silver prints, platinum prints, and other processes. Many of these techniques were used in the creation of his life’s work, The North American Indian (1907-1930), a 20-volume project launched with a substantial investment by industrialist J.P. Morgan.

    This luminous, golden-toned vintage photogravure is from Volume 20, the final volume in The North American Indian. It depicts the harbour at King Island (also known by its Inuit name, Ugiuvak), an island approximately 65km west of Alaska, in the Bering Sea.
