Edward S. Curtis
Luminous Portraits of American Indian Life
October 9, 2015 through January 4, 2016
at the Museum in the John and Peggy Maximus Gallery
Curtis’ monumental project, the depiction of the daily life of Indian tribes from New Mexico to Alaska, consumed him for thirty years. The influence of western landscape painting was evident in his subjective approach and artistic style. His carefully arranged compositions and use of light created the sense of a timeless presence.
