Gitanyow (Kitwanyou) Totem Poles, Nass Valley, Northern British Columbia, Canada CM11-06

Description : American artist Langdon Kihn* sketched and painted views of Kitwancool, now known as Gitanyow, in 1924 at the behest of Marius Barbeau. His graphic style reflects his forte as an illustrator. He was given to reinterpret Northwest Coast sculpture and design, and to recompose the settings of totem poles. Contrast his work with that of Carr who first visited Gitanyow in 1928 at the point when her personal style was evolving dramatically.
