Christopher Cardozo is widely acknowledged as the world’s leading authority on Edward S. Curtis. He is the author of nine monographs on Edward Curtis and has created and curated one-person Edward Curtis exhibitions that have been seen in nearly one hundred venues in over forty countries.
Having collected Edward Curtis’ artwork for four decades, Cardozo has created the world’s largest and most broad-ranging Curtis collection. No one has done more to increase the awareness, understanding, and appreciation for Curtis’ work than Christopher Cardozo, except Edward Curtis himself.
Cardozo Fine Art reinvented the lost Goldtone process from the ground up, marrying the best of modern technology using Curtis’ exquisite negatives. Goal: to consistently produce stunning Goldtones(TM) as good as the top half percent of Edward Curtis’ vintage Goldtones. We spent over three years and one third of a million dollars on research and development. Each framed and printed image is individually hand-created, together encompassing over 70 different steps.
Please contact him regarding both original Edward Curtis photogravures and new renditions of his work.
From the historical archives at the University of Denver, Paul Unks of Mountain Hawk Fine Art presents a limited edition of hand-pulled Intaglio Photogravures and Gold Tones made from the original mint-conditioned photographs of renowned 19th century photographer, Edward Curtis. Paul Unks is the only master printer today keeping Curtis old craft alive by making Copper Plate Photogravures and Gold Tones just like Curtis did, in custom sizes and frames.
They also offer very affordable high quality archival pigmented ink prints and sepia photographs of all their images. Their museum quality conservation framing package includes: prints mounted using acid free boards and mattes, hung with Mylar corners, behind ultra-clear UV protected glass.
