This beautiful and one-of-a-kind hand colored photogravure displays Roland W. Reed's ability to capture the sheer beauty and mystique of Native Americans. The Wood Gatherer features a distinctly intimate portrayal of the Native American lifestyle. This incredible scene depicts a young Hopi Indian leading his pack animal to their shelter. Both the boy and his mule look exhausted from a long day's work in the arid desert in which they live. The light washes of color give this piece incredible depth and visual interest.

This timeless photogravure was acquired directly from Roland Reed's family. This piece was reportedly hand-colored by Roy F. Williams, the nephew of Roland Reed, who colored less than 50 photogravures. The Wood Gatherer was printed from original copper plates in a one time only, limited edition of 250 copies in 1918. The image measures approximately 8. 5" by 12.5" on paper that measures approximately 14” x 18.” The extreme edges of the paper have very slightly browned, there is a small chip on the upper edge and a small black dot in the margin above the upper right corner of the image. These imperfections are minor and could easily be hidden with a new mat or frame.
