Country Of The Kutenai – Archival Print


Excerpt from the original narrative by Edward Curtis:
“The Kutenai occupied portions of the southeastern British Columbia, northern Idaho, and northwestern Montana. In this region of blue, mountain lakes and majestic rivers they very naturally made use of canoes. The commoner form was the pine-bark craft still to be observed among the Kalispel, but occasionally they made canoes of the form here illustrated, by stretching fresh elk-hides over a framework of fir strips or tough saplings. The one seen in the picture is a canvas-covered specimen found on the shore of Flathead Lake in 1909.”

Our quoted dimensions are for the paper size, not the printed image itself.

For ethical and aesthetic reasons, we do not crop or alter the aspect ratio of Curtis’ original images. All of our prints have a minimum border of 1 inch to allow for safe handling and framing. For instance, an 11” x 14” print of An Oasis in the Badlands will have an image size of 10-3/8” x 12

Photographed in 1910, 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.
