Chief Joseph – Archival Print


Chief Joseph of the Nez Percé is widely considered to be one of the most important tribal leaders of the 19th century. He became close friends with Edward Curtis and this friendship was critical to Curtis’ later success in gaining the trust of numerous other tribes. Joseph’s pride, nobility and tragic experiences that he and his people suffered are all evident on his face. After eluding the U.S. Calvary for nearly two years he was finally subdued and proclaimed the words that became famous: “I will fight no more forever…”

Photographed in 1903, the image was created using a high-resolution scan from an original Curtis photogravure. Prior to scanning, the vintage photogravure was professionally conserved to restore the print to its original appearance. After conservation the images are prepared and optimized for printing with pigment-based inks and 100% cotton paper to ensure archival stability and quality that aligns with Curtis’ original intent.
