Scope and Contents:
Missing Title

Worthington Whittredge, New York, 2 February 1879, to Andrew Varick Stout Anthony (1835-1906), American wood engraver.

New York, 28 December 1868, to Samuel A. Coale Jr., St. Louis.Whittredge writes to Coale, a St. Louis merchant and arts patron, apologizing that the little picture Coale recently purchased, a scene in the Lebanon Valley, New York, was not ready to be shipped as a Christmas present to this wife, due to damage sustained to the frame, but it will arrive before New Year's day. He explains that since the price charged was well below cost, Coale will have to pay for the expense of the frame, as well as the boxing and shipping. The picture is a little dry in places, so Whittredge advises Coale to take it out of its frame and spread boiled linseed oil evenly over the surface, in preference to varnish, as the work is displayed under glass.

Correspondence

Collection Creator:
Barnard, George Grey, 1863-1938  Search this
Extent:
0.7 Linear feet (Box 1)
Type:
Archival materials
Date:
circa 1896-1965
Scope and Contents note:
This series contains the personal and business correspondence of George Grey Barnard until his death in 1938. Later correspondence consists of the incoming and outgoing correspondence of Barnard's son, Monroe Grey Barnard, mostly in connection with his father's estate and in letters to art historian and Barnard scholar, Harold E. Dickson.

Correspondents include art and antiques dealers, museum directors, curators, and galleries, as well as individuals whom Barnard identified as 'prospects' for either his own sculptural projects or medieval antiquities in his collection. Frequent correspondents include art and antiques dealers M. Dagras et Fils, C. Joret, Ste. Galleries Schutz, D.W. French and Co.; museum directors Edward Forbes (Fogg Art Museum, Harvard Univesity), Robert DeForest (Metropolitan Museum of Art), Fiske Kimball (Philadelphia Museum of Art); and art patrons Arthur M. Huntington and John Gellatly. Handwritten drafts and typed copies of Barnard's outgoing letters are scattered throughout.

Of particular interest are the letters from the early to mid-1920s, the period during which he was trying to sell the medieval art and architectural elements that made up the George Grey Barnard Cloisters. Individuals wrote with proposals, such as artist Calthea Vivian, who hoped to find a home for the collection in California. Museums that expressed interest include the Toledo Museum of Art. Ultimately the collection was purchased by the Metropolitan Museum of Art, with funds provided by John D. Rockefeller. The 1925 folder contains letters providing details concerning the sales agreement.

Correspondence that post-dates Barnard's death in 1938 includes his son's correspondence with various individuals and institutions concerning his father's estate and the remaining collection of medieval art and architectural elements, which was known as 'The Monastery' or 'The Abbaye.' There is significant correspondence with representatives of the National Cathedral regarding moving the collection to Washington, D.C. However, no correspondence was found relating to the Philadelphia Museum of Art's subsequent acquisition of the bulk of the collection. There is also significant personal correspondence between Monroe and his mother (Edna Monroe Barnard), primarily typed copies of his outgoing letters.

See Appendix for a list of notable correspondents from Series 2
Arrangement note:
Correspondence is arranged chronologically. A file of undated letters and another that contains a typed list of telegrams and telephone calls has been placed at the end.

Type:
Archival materials
Date:
1905-1988
Scope and Contents note:
Correspondence is the largest series within the collection and contains both Kroll's personal and professional correspondence. There is correspondence with many fellow New York and European artists, including members of the social realist and ashcan schools of painting and artists he met on his travels and participation in national and international art organizations and committees. There is also correspondence with students and publishers, requests for Kroll to teach, lecture, or write articles, and business correspondence regarding exhibitions, sales, donations, and commissions. A small amount of correspondence is in French.

Artists that Kroll corresponded with include John Taylor Arms, Gifford Beal, George Bellows, Edwin Blashfield, George Biddle, Isabel Bishop, Marc Chagall, Arthur Covey, Randall Davey, Sonia Delaunay, Edwin Dickinson, Barry Faulkner, Ernest Fiene, Joseph Floch, William Glackens, Ellen Day Hale, Samuel Halpert, Robert Henri, Joseph Hirsch, Robert and Edward Hopper, Berthe Koch, Yasuo Kuniyoshi, Richard Lahey, Paul Manship, Ezio Martinelli, William McKillop, Gari Melchers, Hobart Nichols, Henry Schnakenberg, John Sloan, Raphael Soyer, Eugene Speicher, Maurice Sterne, Stuyvesant Van Veen, Hutton Webster, Esther Williams, Hamilton Wolf, and Andrew Wyeth, among many others.

Kroll also corresponded with many art historians and critics, curators, and gallery owners, such as Arthur Byne, Alfred Churchill, Frank Rehn, and Louis Stern, and several art patrons and collectors such as J. S. Carpenter, Etta Cone, Aldus Higgins, Julius Lempert, and Carl Weeks.

A large amount of the correspondence found here is Leon Kroll's professional correspondence with arts organizations, clubs, and committees in which he participated. These include the American Society of Painters, Sculptors, and Gravers; Artists Equity Association; Municipal Art Committee of New York; National Academy of Design; and the National Institute of Arts and Letters, and many others. These files may contain copies of letters between other members, press releases, printed material, meeting minutes, or memos Kroll sent to members. Also found is correspondence with arts administrators regarding federal government art projects and funding, including Edward Bruce, Forbes Watson, and Edward Rowan.

A significant amount of family correspondence, particularly from Leon Kroll to his sister Tess Pergament and mother Harriet Kroll are found in the 2019 additions.
Arrangement note:
In general, letters are filed alphabetically by person or corporate name. Names with five or more letters are filed in their own folders, and the remainder of correspondence is filed in miscellaneous files. Selected correspondents whose names do not appear in headings are indicated in a note following the folder heading. Some correspondence with individuals may also be filed according to the name of the organization with which they were associated. Where they exist, Kroll's outgoing letters are interfiled with incoming letters.

This series has been scanned in its entirety except for the 2019 addition.
