Asahel Curtis Orotone – Dawn at Mount Rainier, 1911
This is a wonderful orotone or goldtone by photographer Asahel Curtis capturing the dawn at the feet of Mount Rainier. The photo for this negative was taken in 1911. “Dawn” is a famous piece of Asahel Curtis, and is also available in this collection in a large hand-tinted version. The frame and backing of this orotone are all original.
The item is stunning, to say the least. Standing in front of this 11 x 14 glass plate and staring at this wonderful creation is mesmerizing. The item was added to the collection in 2016, and is one of my personal favorite items.
