Letters

Bultman, Fritz, 1919-1985  Search this
Extent:
0.4 Linear feet (Box 1)
Type:
Archival materials
Date:
1930-1995
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.
Arrangement:
Incoming and outgoing letters are filed together and arranged by year. Additional letters are included among the subject files (Series 7).

Scope and Contents:
Subject files reflect some of Bultman's activities, interests, and relationships. Individual files in this series may contain a wide variety of record types or consist simply of correspondence with or about an individual or institution.

The most thoroughly documented subject is Hans Hofmann. Printed materials include articles about Hofmann, a brochure of the Hans Hofmann School of Fine Arts, exhibition notices and catalogs. Among the writings by Hofmann are: an article, "Plastic Creation;" his essay, "Form and Color in the Creative Process: The Painter's Primer" (edited by Cynthia Goodman, translated by Georgina Huck); and a book, The Search for the Real (edited by Sarah T. Weeks and Bartlett H. Hayes, Jr.); as well as lectures and talks.

Joseph Cornell documentation includes letters referring to Napoleonic Parakeet, a Cornell box owned by the Bultmans; also found are postcards and further correspondence. Printed material, mostly about exhibitions, includes a notice about Cornell's memorial service.

"Forum '49" and "Forum '49 Revisited" includes photographs of the 1949 installation and the participating artists --Fritz Bultman, Peter Busa, Kenneth Campbell, Minna Citron, Morris Davidson, Lillian Drake, Perle Fine, William Freed, Howard Gibbs, Kahlil Gibran, Adolph Gottlieb, John Grillo, Weldon Kees, Karl Knaths, Lawrence and Mrs. Kupferman, Blanche Lazzell, Boris Margo, George McNeil, F. Pfeiffer, and Judith Rothschild.

Found in the Weldon Kees file are requests for information about Kees, Bultman's notes about their friendship, along with a few letters from Kees and manuscripts of articles about him. The file concerning the Provincetown History Preservation Project contains many original letters of Fritz and Jeanne Bultman, a few photographs, and other items that Mrs. Bultman thought might be of interest to the project. Documentation of friendships with Tony Smith and Donald Windham includes a substantial number of letters. The Windham file also includes writings and there is a book cover Bultman designed for him.
