This item comes with a written appraisal from a Southwestern Art Dealer for $2,250.00 done 10 years ago. I just looked at the listing for Curtis "Photogravures". The first thing you should ask is, "what is a Photogravures?" Years ago was done by transposing the negative on to a piece of copper and etching the image into the metal. That metal "plate" was then mounted into an old style printing press, and then printed on to high quality parchment like paper. These "runs" were done in very limited numbers, which is why originals are more valuable. This process is what gives the "Cypitone" or brownish patina. That is the reason the prices are all over the place ........it could be an "Original Print" like mine.......or just a picture of a print.........just be careful.
