Eskimo peoples from the North Pole

after Heinrich Rudolf SCHINZ (Zurich 1777 - 1861)

“Eskimo” “Tanzende Eskimo”

(Eskimo peoples from the North Pole)
Two original lithographs from the graphic kit of the work “Naturgeschichte und Abbildungen der Menschen und der Saugetiere” printed by the swiss lithographer Honegger and published in Zurich between 1830 and 1835.
Very nice examples printed on wove paper, with slight foxing spots at the edges, otherwise in good general condition, embellished with a bright and accurate recent watercolouring..
Beautiful representations of a group of indigenous from the North Pole traditionally inhabiting the circumpolar region from eastern Siberia (Russia), across Alaska (United States), Canada, and Greenland.
They are shown dressing their traditional fur clothes, in the second print two children are dancing following the rythm of mother's cooking pan.
