Curtis' 50 Best of The North American Indian, The Oppenheimer Field Museum Edition

In 1900, Curtis was commissioned to complete an extensive survey of Native Americans in five years. Five years turned into a thirty-year project during which he recorded Indian traditions and culture, taking over 40,000 images from more than eighty tribes, This remarkable effort resulted in a twenty volume magnum opus entitled The North American Indian.

The collection is uniquely produced from the original photogravures in the collection of The Field Museum’s Mary W. Runnells Rare Book Room.

Established in 1999, Oppenheimer Editions has partnered with prestigious museums to make prints from their holdings. Works from the New-York Historical Society’s unrivaled collections of John James Audubon’s watercolors and the Hudson River School paintings are examples of art that otherwise would be unobtainable. Among the institutional collections we have partnered with are the American Museum of Natural History, the Field Museum, and Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew. These are not mere reproductions. They are limited-edition fine art prints made with the finest quality archival pigments on rag watercolor paper and executed to exacting standards.
