This is an authentic (NOT a modern reprint) vintage 1972 offset lithographic print on art paper made directly from the original circa early 1900's photogravure plate by the renowned photographer of the Native American Indian, Edward S. This is not a photogravure or chemical process print - it is a vintage photo-mechanical offset print (also known as a photo engraving) made directly from the original pre 1920 Edward S. Rare and out of print, the now famous 1972 printing of these photo lithograph plates marked the first time since the early 20th century that these iconic Native American images have been faithfully reprinted from the original large Curtis photogravure plates, as well as matched for tonality and color. In the year of their release, the famous photography critic and author A.Coleman praised the high quality of these 1972 Edward Curtis fine art plates as being the truest printing of the photographer's work he had ever seen, outside of the actual original turn of the century plates. Condition of this plate is excellent and it would frame up nicely for display. This vintage 1972 offset print is guaranteed to be authentic and comes with a hand signed CERTIFICATE OF AUTHENTICITY (COA) from Finephoto. Computer scans simply cannot do justice nor render the soft color palette and rich tonality of the actual print itself. The watermark word "Finephoto" does not appear on the actual print. READY FOR FRAMING & DISPLAY! - The unique aesthetics of high quality offset photo lithography and the resulting fine prints make high quality vintage offset plates highly collectible and excellent prints for framing and display.
