I thought I'd share if anyone is interested.

Thank you for adding this! S-

I've been following the Yerbury's for a few years now on facebook. I'm thinking I have about 6 or 8 of their images in my collection Matt.

Here is another image I missed getting back in the early 80's. One of Edward Curtis's more famous image. There was a classified ad in the Oregonian and I didn't get to the phone fast enough. ;-(

I'm curious what you look for in the art you collect. Is it something about the image, the artist, or something more? S-

Would love having an Edward Curtis image. Sorry you missed it! He is a fascinating figure in photographic history. I got to see a big exhibit of his at the Smithsonian several years ago. Wonderful.
