The Indian Country, Original Northern Pacific Railway Travel Poster

  • ca 1935
  • Maaron Glemby
  • 30 x 40 inches ~ (76 x 101 cm)
  • Linen backed

    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.

    The price of this poster includes linen backing.

    Very rare and wonderful poster.

    Glemby was a true outdoors-woman: she studied art in Montana, traveled to Peru and Chile to paint portraits of the locals, spent time with Native Americans out West—even becoming an honorary princess of the Blackfoot Indian Tribe and learning nine different Indian dialects—enjoyed hunting and fishing, and was known as one of the sharpest female rifle shots in the world. Her portraits of Native Americans were exhibited at the American Museum of National History, at which point Northern Pacific asked her to create posters for the line. Here, she depicts important members and chiefs of various tribes, including the Lakota, the Flatheads, and the Oglala Sioux—all of which may have at one point been found along the "Main Street of the Northwest."
