Did you know that Indian maiden prints are a collecting category in and of themselves? There is even a collector book on the topic. Whenever I see them at auctions or estate sales, I try to pick them up for resale.
"Absence Makes the Heart Grow Fonder" by Charles Relyea, circa 1932
Indian maiden images were often part of calendars, advertising, or simply framed art prints. They were initially quite popular in the 1920's and 30's. Artists well known for Indian maiden art include R. Atkinson Fox; Edward Eggleston; Homer Nelson; Ingerele; Charles Relyea; and F.R. Harper.
"Yellow Bird" by Ingerele, circa 1922
The Indian maidens depicted in these prints resembled showgirls wearing Indian costumes more than ethnic Native American women wearing authentic tribal clothing. Little, if any, research was done on specific tribal costumes prior to painting the maidens. Let's just say a lot of artistic license was used when these images were produced.
"Daughter of the Setting Sun" by R. Atkinson Fox, circa 1928:
Prices for Indian maiden prints make them an affordable collectible. I found "Yellow Bird" in a gesso frame on Ebay that sold for $58.00 recently. That's about what I would charge for it in one of my antique mall booths. Of course, there are various size prints, and some are more rare than others, so prices will vary greatly.
