The Curtis Gallery is closed due to the CA Shelter in Place order. We regret any inconvenience to our collectors, but we are still taking orders both online and over the phone and shipping them to collectors. It is our hope The Curtis Gallery will be open again soon.

Cape Prince of Wales

The Eskimo of Cape Prince of Wales lived in the village of Kingegan which translates to “a high place.” It is the western-most inhabited location in North America, only 55 miles from Siberia across the Bering Straits. Curtis created a total of nine (9) copper photogravure plates during his visits with the Eskimo of Cape Prince of Wales and eight (8) remain available to collectors today.
