Edward Sheriff Curtis runs through October 13 at Photographs Do Not Bend. Call 214-969-1852.
The actual landscapes are another matter. Curtis, far more than Reaugh, set out to mythologize, to tell white lies, and for this reason he belongs in the roll-call of important Western artists. Of course this category is an art-historical oxymoron, and Curtis' results, like Remington's, are often as schmaltzy and stilted and dishonest as anything produced under the guise of official Soviet state realism. Curtis' point of view simply makes his work somewhat more palatable to contemporary tastes, and this seems a slender reed upon which to hang greatness.
