Biographical / Historical:
Fritz Bultman (1919-1985), a New York School painter and sculptor who lived and worked in Provincetown, Massachusetts and New York City, was also a collagist, stained glass artist, and educator.

Anthony Fred Bultman, III --always known as Fritz --was from a prominent and cultured New Orleans family. He began studying art as a boy and one of his teachers was Morris Graves, a family friend. His last 2 years of high school were spent at the Munich Preparatory School, boarding with Mrs. Hans Hofmann whose husband was working in New York for an extended period. Bultman attended the New Bauhaus in Chicago before studying for three years with Hans Hofmann in New York City and Provincetown, Massachusetts. As well as being a major influence on Bultman's development as a painter, Hofmann became a life-long friend.

Fritz Bultman met dancer and model Jeanne Lawson (1918-2008), when she was posing in Hofmann's studio during the summer of 1941. They married in 1943 and the following year bought a house in Provincetown. In 1945, Bultman built a studio designed by a friend from the New Bauhaus, sculptor and architectural designer Tony Smith, who also helped with its construction.

His first solo exhibition was held in 1947 at the Hugo Gallery, New York; others followed in 1950, again at Hugo Gallery and at Kootz Gallery, New York. After receiving an Italian Government Grant for Exchange Fellowship, Bultman spent 1950-1951 in Florence, Italy, where he learned the process of casting and began making metal sculpture. In 1952 the Bultmans moved to New York City. Depressed and beset by anxiety, Bultman began Freudian psychoanalysis, and between 1952 and 1956 produced very little artwork.

In 1958 Bultman resumed exhibiting and continued to show regularly for the remainder of his life. He enjoyed solo exhibitions in New York City, Paris, New Orleans, North Carolina, Provincetown, and other venues. Between 1958 and 1963 Bultman taught painting at Hunter College and was an instructor in design and painting at Pratt Institute. Bultman spent 1964-1965 in Paris on a Fulbright Grant painting and sculpting, studying European methods of bronze casting, and meeting French artists. Bultman maintained his reputation as a highly regarded art instructor and in later years was a sought after guest lecturer at a various colleges. While artist-in-residence at Kalamazoo College, Michigan in 1981, he designed and produced a stained glass mural with technical assistance from his wife, Jeanne Bultman, a skilled artisan.

Fritz Bultman died of cancer in Provincetown, Massachusetts, in 1985.

Scope and Contents:
Most incoming letters are addressed to Fritz Bultman or family members. Earlier letters concern Fritz's education in Munich, enrollment at the New Bauhaus, and studies with Hans Hofmann in New York and Provincetown, Massachusetts. Many letters are from Miz Hofmann (in German, some with translations) and from Hans Hofmann offering advice and encouragement; after the outbreak of World War II, they sought Bultman's help to obtain documents necessary for Mrs. Hofmann to join her husband in the United States. As Bultman's career progressed, incoming letters concerned exhibitions, sales, and invitations to lecture or serve as a visiting professor. In addition to brief notes and messages from Jeanne Bultman to Fritz, mostly of a routine nature, there are frequent, lengthy letters sent while traveling in Europe. Letters post-dating Bultman's death concern exhibitions, loans, and sales.

The majority of letters by Bultman are to his family; a large portion were written when he was a student. Some drafts and copies of letters by Bultman concern professional activities such as arrangements for lectures, exhibitions, and Cynthia Goodman's editing of "Form and Color in the Creative Process: The Painter's Primer" by Hans Hofmann.
