Keene, Minna. 1861-1943.
Original photograph, Untitled [Canadian Indian Chief], bromide silver print, 485 x 373 mm, mounted on thicker board, [Canada: c.1914,] outer margins slightly oxidized, some minor cracking at extremities, with an old damp stain on edges of verso.

A fine exhibition-sized early 20th century image of a proud Canadian Indian Chief, with full headdress. Minna was a great portrait artist, and achieved outstanding results throughout her career. On her arrival in Canada she was commissioned in 1914 by the Canadian Pacific Railway to take pictures of the Canadian Rockies. On her trip out west, with her daughter Violet, she captured not only the scenery of the Rockies, but also portraiture of the remaining Indian tribes.
