Tlingit Box Design, John Livingston, 1/150
$450.00 plus shipping

This is an original limited edition screen by First Nation artist John Livingston. It is entitled "Tlingit Box Design Ca. 1850". It was made for the collection of H. B. Roloff (seen at lower left). It is signed on lower right, followed by the edition number. This design was a drum box design. I bought this work of art from Livingston in 1982. John Livingston was born in Vancouver, British Columbia in 1951. After moving to Victoria, he developed a life long interest in Northwest Coast native art and culture. He began a carving and design apprenticeship at the British Columbia museum in 1965 under the tutelage of the late Henry Hunt and his son Tony Hunt. He learned Northwest Coast designs, as well as tool techniques and hand skills. After graduating in 1968, he immersed himself full time in Northwest Coast art as a career. Livingston is a master wood carver and has worked on many large totem sculptures. His primary medium is wood, but he is also an accomplished painter and has released over 50 limited edition prints. He is also an expert in the restoration, replication and appraisal of native artifacts. Size of paper: height-32 1/8" x width-24 3/8" Image size approximately: height-27.5" x width-20.5" Condition: Excellent; mild water stain lower edge. See photos for details.
