Roland W. Reed (American, 1864-1934). Photogravure titled "The Hunting Ground (Piegan, Montana)" depicting a scene of three Piegan Native Americans riding horses by a river, ca. 1912. Pencil signed along the lower right. Titled and dated along the verso in pen.

Reed returned throughout his life to Minnesota, though his sense of wanderlust compelled him to travel throughout the United States. His subjects were often Native Americans and he was part of a school of photographers known as "Pictorialists" whose emphasis on light and focus defined their works. His works are often part of a tradition of photographs taken during this time aimed at capturing the "Disappearing Indian," based on the notion that Native Americans' traditional way of life was disappearing rather than changing.

Height: 7 3/4 in x width: 9 3/4 in.
