Photogravure, Geronimo, Apache
By Edward S. Curtis - SOLD

From Wikipedia: "Geronimo - Apache (1905) Description by Edward S. Curtis: This portrait of the historical old Apache was made in March, 1905. According to Geronimo's calculation he was at the time seventy-six years of age, thus making the year of his birth 1829. The picture was taken at Carlisle, Pennsylvania, the day before the inauguration of President Roosevelt, Geronimo being one of the warriors who took part in the inaugural parade at Washington. He appreciated the honor of being one of those chosen for this occasion, and the catching of his features while the old warrior was in a retrospective mood was most fortunate."

From Wikipedia: "This image came from The North American Indian by Edward S. Curtis. These images were published between 1907 and 1930"

About the image being offered:

Geronimo-Apache: Frame 23.75 by 18.25 View 16.25 by 10.75 Actual Tissue size: 12" by 17"
Upper left: "Plate 2"
Lower left: "Geronimo Apache"
Lower Center: "From Copyright Photograph 1907 by E. S. Curtis"
Lower Right: "Photogravure John Andrew and Son"

Exceptional authentic example, possibly one of the overruns on India Proof or Gambi Tissue Paper. Although this iconic image of Geronimo presents very nicely in the current frame, we would recommend a minor investment in a museum mounting to preserve this image for the generations to come. The current owner self mounted the photogravure on acid free using common tape, and there are now very minor paper losses to each corner where the tape remains affixed. Losses are invisible under matting, and we have obtained an estimate of 300-500 for restoration (details available), plus the cost of appropriate museum quality mat.
