Master Exhibition Platinum Print appearing on the original exhibition double mount
12.5 x 15.5 in.
Signed by Curtis in red wax pencil, embossed copyright credit and date stamp on recto; titled and annotated "$15.00, The Three Chiefs Blackfoot Montana" in an unknown hand in ink on the reverse of the secondary mount.
This print is believed to be one of only two oversized, platinum Master Exhibition Prints of this image in existence, printed by Curtis specifically for his East Coast exhibition tour of 1905-1906.
Curtis chose only a small number of what he believed to be his finest negatives from which to produce one or two prints for the show. He never again mounted an exhibition of his work, nor produced such distinctive, large-format platinum prints.
