HERE’S A PROFESSIONALLY MATTED AND FRAMED ORIGINAL SEPIA-TONE PHOTOGRAVURE PRINTED ON VELLUM PAPER TITLED “A YOUNG WARRIOR – NEZ PERCE” FROM A 1910 IMAGE BY EDWARD SHERIFF CURTIS (1868-1952) THAT WAS PUBLISHED FOR “THE NORTH AMERICAN INDIAN, VOLUME 8”!
Please Note: This original Edward Curtis sepia-tone photogravure was professionally matted and framed within the past thirty or so years. To this end, the photogravure has not been removed from this fairly recently completed matting and framing for a thorough review.
Provenance: Acquired from an estate in Scottsdale, Arizona.
Dimensions: The image size for this photogravure measures approximately seven and one eighth inches (7 1/8”) in height by five and one quarter inches (5 ¼”) in width. The photogravure’s paper / sheet size that can be viewed within the matte board measures approximately eight and one quarter inches (8 ¼”) in height by five and three quarters inches (5 ¾”) in width but the actual dimensions should be approximately twelve and one half inches (12 ½”) in height by nine and one half inches (9 ½”) in width. The paper / sheet size of this photogravure can only be verified by dismantling the matting and framing. Lastly, the overall measurements of the burl wood frame are approximately eighteen inches (18”) in height by fourteen and one half inches (14 ½”) in width.
Markings: The framer for this original Edward Curtis sepia-tone photogravure included the gravure’s printed information, which reads: “A YOUNG WARRIOR – NEZ PERCE From Copyright Photograph 1910 by E.S. Curtis”
Condition: The photogravure looks to be in pristine original condition – absolutely beautiful! But again, the photogravure has not been removed from its matting and frame for a thorough examination. The double-matting is also in excellent and clean condition. And the burl wood frame is in very good toward excellent and clean condition with a few small scuffs and markings. The paper backing is in very good and clean condition with a few small punctures.
