Very rare and stunningly beautiful, ca1905 gelatin silver Photograph of a Native American Navajo Indian Boy by Carl Moon. This fantastic Carl Moon Art Photo is one of a number of images titled simply "Navaho Boy" by the Artist. The Photograph measures approx. 5" by 7" and is matted for display using archival materials and techniques (overall size of matted display is 11" by 14").


This Photograph is one of the more well known and highly sought after of the works by the great Native American Art Photographer Carl Moon. It is a powerful portrait of a proud Navajo wearing a beautiful squash blossom necklace and traditional head scarf.


Carl (or "Karl" as he sometimes spelled his name) Everton Moon was born in 1879 at Wilmington, Ohio. He became interested in Native American at an early age. After High School Moon served in the National Guard and decided on photography as a vocation. After apprenticing for 6 years he opened a studio in Albuquerque, New Mexico to begin photographic "art studies" of the Southwestern Indians. Over the next few decades Carl Moon became renowned nation wide and his work was exhibited at The National Museum in Washington, D.C., the American Museum of Natural History, New York and at the invitation of President Theodore Roosevelt, at The White House.


Over the years he formed friendships with his subjects that enabled him to spend weeks at a time in tribal villages, learning about their culture. He set up a photographic studio and began making his first collection of photographs and paintings of the Pueblo Indians. For the next seven years he was in charge of the Fred Harvey Headquarters at the Grand Canyon in Arizona.


In 1906 Moon sold the photograph "Meguelito" to the American Lumber Company for advertising purposes such as calendars and logos. He then sent letters to many major companies all over the U.S. to offer his photographs for their use. Some of the companies that used his photographers were: American Lumber Company, Seneca Coal Mining Company, The Knapp Company, Fred Harvey Company, Seneca Camera Company, Wells Fargo, Stetson Hats and Red Garter Saloon in Virginia City, Nevada. Buffalo Bill Cody, a friend of Moon's used his photo "The Warrior" on many of Cody's posters which advertised his Wild West Show. Also the Mays Drilling Company, Broken Arrow, Oklahoma and Martin Ranchero used his photos. Martin Ranchero was owned by Charles M. Martin a famous writer of western stories who was a personal friend of Moon as was General George Patton, a native of Pasadena.


PLEASE NOTE: This is an original, ca1905 Photograph - it is not a reprint, reissue or modern image but an original Photograph printed out in the early 20th century by the artist himself.


This very rare and much sought after Carl Moon Art Photo is in excellent condition.
