Swann Auction Galleries’ sale of Fine Photographs on Thursday, April 14, will feature a selection of classical twentieth-century prints alongside contemporary works.
Headlining the sale is Edward S. Curtis’s seminal Portfolio I, 1907 — the iconic first portfolio in Curtis’s monumental project, The North American Indian ($60,000-90,000). From an unfulfilled edition of 500, the portfolio comes to auction complete with 39 photogravures and features many of Curtis’s most important and notable images, including his portrait of Geronimo, Cañon de Chelly, A Chief of the Desert – Navaho, Son of the Desert—Navaho, The Vanishing Race, and many more. Also by Curtis is Volume I, 1907, of the North American Indian ($15,000-25,000).
