The Good Indian - American Art Print

  • 1907
  • Z. Lasgow
  • 8 1/2 x 12 1/2 inches ~ (20 x 30 cm)
  • Unbacked

    This poster is currently unbacked. At check out, you will be given the opportunity to add backing which would cost $80 and take approximately 6-8 weeks.

    Linen backing is the industry standard of conservation. Canvas is stretchered and a sheet of acid free barrier paper is laid down. The poster is then pasted to the acid free paper using an acid free paste. This process is fully reversible and gives support to the poster. A border of linen is left around the poster and can be used by a framer to mount the poster so that nothing touches the poster itself. Backing is what we recommend for framing, and for any poster needing restoration.

  • Lovely and rare print from an earlier time with very different sensibilities. Historically the swastika was an important symbol in many cultures including Native American. By the early twentieth century it was regarded worldwide as symbol of good luck and auspiciousness.

    Lo, the good Indian, better than the kind,

    In tales of massacre and blood we find;

    With noble mein and keen unflinching eye,

    He fronts the future, unafraid to die,

    Knowing full well earth has for him no place,

    Hearing, unloved, the death knell of his race.

    Walter Juan Davis
