There is much written and available about the life and times of Edward S. Curtis. We shall not attempt here to restate his biographical history. However, we shall simply relate our appreciation for his dedication to his work, his passion for his subject matter, his energy and ‘stick-to-it’ purpose to complete his endeavor.
His life work, and the consequences of that life and work, as well as the other participants along the way, have made this time possible – the availability of his enormous collection of photogravure plates for collection by enthusiasts.
We, at the Curtis Gallery, are pleased to be able to host this “Curtis Exhibition” and hope that you may appreciate Curtis’ work as much as we enjoy offering Curtis’ photogravure plates to the collector marketplace.
