$544Asking Price

About

Silver and sepia tone photographic print of a Blackfoot couple and a Travois by Edward Sheriff Curtis, image circa 1923 (American, 1868-1952), as a 1980 copy of and printed from negatives derived from the original Edward Curtis, Copper gravure plate, at the Smithsonian Museum by Jean-Antony du Lac (1929-2002). Curtis used a process he mastered of creating orotones, which are photographs on glass, which Jean-Anthony du Lac spent years mastering. Jean-Antony du Lac's work is considered that of a preservationist. Signed lower right. Image, 13"H x 17.75"W; Shipped with mat. overall, 18"H x 24"W. Born in France and raised in New York City, he moved west to San Francisco in 1957. Jean was an accomplished photographer whose published credits include Life Magazine and the San Francisco Examiner. He spent many years reproducing Edward S. Curtis' images of North American Indians; and he mastered the process of creating orotones, which are photographic reproductions on glass. Jean's orotones appeared on the walls of the Smithsonian as well as the White House during the Carter and Reagan administrations. A preservationist, his reproduction of Edward Muybridge's panorama of San Francisco still hangs in one prominent San Franciso hotel; and he was instrumental in organizing Proposition P in the early 1970s, which sought to preserve the old San Franciso skyline by limiting the height of all downtown skyscrapers. The majority of his life a mystery, Jean left behind no material possessions, save for a single key to a solitary padlock.
