Fort Worth's Amon Carter Museum acquires a long-sought masterpiece of American Indian photography

Author:

The Amon Carter Museum, already known for the breadth and depth of its photography holdings, has acquired one of the most important publications of the 20th century: a rare, complete set of Edward Sheriff Curtis’ The North American Indian. The set — 20 volumes of illustrated books and more than 700 large images of Indian tribes in the early 1900s — has long been coveted by the Carter’s curators and represents a "tour de force" of photographic beauty and anthropological value.
