Biographical Note:
Painter, photographer, lithographer and designer, Charles Rettew Sheeler Jr. was born on July 16, 1883 to Mary Cunningham Sheeler and Charles Rettew Sheeler in Philadelphia. He attended the School of Industrial Art in Philadelphia from 1900-1903 and the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, where he studied under William Merritt Chase. He found early success as a painter and exhibited at the Macbeth Gallery in 1908.

Around 1910 Sheeler took up photography, and by 1912 financially supported himself photographing buildings for local Philadelphia architects. The following year, Sheeler exhibited six paintings at the 1913 Armory Show in New York. In the mid 1910s, Sheeler began to collect American antiques, and by the 1920s was actively acquiring Shaker crafts and furniture.

In 1916, Sheeler was hired by Marius de Zayas of the Modern Gallery in New York to photograph objects and artwork. From 1917-1924, he worked as the staff photographer for the Modern Gallery and moved to New York in 1918. In 1920, Sheeler was hired as a still photographer for The Arts Magazine.

In 1926, Sheeler was hired by Edward Steichen to work as a fashion and celebrity photographer for Conde Nast Publications. His photographs were regularly featured in Vogue and Vanity Fair, but Sheeler also worked as a still life photographer for numerous advertising agencies. The following year, he was commissioned by the advertising firm N.W. Ayer and Son to photograph Ford Motor Company's new plant at River Rouge.

While working as a photographer, Sheeler continued to paint and used the subjects and composition of his photographs as a basis for his painting. His paintings Skyscrapers, 1922; Upper Deck, 1929; and American Landscape, 1930 are examples of Sheeler's technique of merging photographic imagery with painting and his overall precisionist style.

In 1931, upon the advice and guidance of Edith Halpert of the Downtown Gallery, Sheeler began to paint more often and to photograph less. Halpert became Sheeler's primarily dealer, and from 1931-1966 regularly exhibited his paintings and drawings. With Halpert's support, Sheeler produced Classic Landscape, 1931; American Interior, 1934; Silo, 1938; Amoskeag Canal, 1948; and Convolutions, 1952. In addition to Sheeler's partnership with Halpert, his work was exhibited by other galleries and museums throughout the United States and abroad.

In 1939, Sheeler married his second wife, Musya Metas Sokolova (1908-1981) and, in 1942, the couple moved to Irvington-on-Hudson, New York. Sheeler continued to paint and photograph until he suffered a debilitating stroke in 1959. After 1959, Sheeler remained active exhibiting his artwork until his death on May 7, 1965 in Dobbs Ferry, New York.
Related Material:
The Archives of American Art holds several collections that are related to Charles Sheeler.

There are two oral history interviews with Sheeler conducted by Mary Bartlett Cowdrey in December 1958, and by Martin Friedman in June 1959. The Archives also has the records of the Macbeth Gallery, which include a substantial amount of correspondence with Sheeler from 1907-1921, and the Downtown Gallery records, which also include correspondence with Sheeler, photographs of Sheeler and his artwork, exhibition publications, clippings, press releases, and audio visual materials dating from 1904-1972.

Also found in the the Archives is a loan of Charles Sheeler letters filmed on reel NY/59-5 containing letters written by Sheeler to his psychologist and art collector, Dr. Helen Boigon, art student George Craven, and friend William Carlos Williams, all dating from 1939-1958. There is a collection of six letters of Sheeler letters addressed to Doris Royce, possibly an art critic, dating from 1949-1957. Miscellaneous manuscript collections include one letter written by Sheeler to E.P. Richardson in 1958, and another letter written to Frank Crowninshield in September, 1939.
Separated Material:
Portions of Sheeler's papers that were originally loaned for microfilming were not included in the later gifts and are available only on microfilm reel NSH-1. A watercolor study microfilmed on reel 1811 was later transferred to the Smithsonian American Art Museum. These materials are not described in the container list of this finding aid.
Provenance:
Charles Sheeler's wife Musya initially loaned the papers to the Archives of American Art for microfilming in 1958, 1965, and 1966. In June, 1966, she donated most of the earlier loaned materials. In 1964, Sheeler's friend Howard Lipman donated three photographs of Sheeler with Edward Steichen and John Marin. The third accrual was transferred to the Archives by the Smithsonian American Art Museum and National Portrait Gallery Library in June 1979.

Garden of Mrs. Ralph Leaf (Beaumont, Texas)
United States of America -- Texas -- Jefferson County -- Beaumont
Scope and Contents:
The folder contains a work sheet and site plan.
General:
This twenty year old small house and garden on a 62'x150' lot in a gated community has a Charleston-style side courtyard entered through two large mahogany black painted doors. Outside the kitchen window is a wrought iron screen covered in vines and a birdbath. Continuing through another pair of mahogany doors, one enters the potting and work area and exits through a gate to the rear driveway area and back gardens. An area of the driveway is planted with a crepe myrtle and a large salix under planted with dwarf mondo grass bordered with St. Augustine grass and low wrought iron fencing. The main garden is situated on the back of the house with views from the master bedroom and library. The master bedroom window frames a large crepe myrtle and a round brick fountain. Large wax myrtle trees anchor each back corner, under planted with President Clay azaleas. All beds are bordered in clipped Asian jasmine. Espaliered pyracantha in a diamond pattern mirrors the fork pattern on the opposite wall, giving three seasons of change--flowers, berries and green. The twelve-columned brick wall surrounding the garden gives privacy and a sense of tranquility.
People associated with this property include: Mrs. Ralph Leaf (garden designer, 1983) and Hermes Mallea (architect of garden walls, 1989).

General:
The original gardens for the Federal style house built in 1939 had privet hedges for privacy, beds of azaleas, and mature oak trees when the current owners began adding features in 1982. They maintained the formal symmetry that included parterres on either side of the house, added 300 clipped boxwoods along existing brick walkways, and established beds of camellias, hydrangeas, roses and other native plantings. There are three distinct garden areas: the street entrance garden in front of the house comprised of an open lawn with magnolias, oaks and perimeter beds; the drive entrance garden along the west side of the house with parterres, antique statues depicting the four seasons, crushed granite walkways, roses, azaleas, ferns and clipped jasmine shaded by a large oak. The third and largest garden behind the house, called the central garden, has a large lawn of St. Augustine grass bordered by clipped boxwoods. The surrounding gardens are rectangular and symmetrical and include camellias, fruit trees, blue plumbago, gardenias, hydrangeas, azaleas and other flowering trees and shrubs suited to the southern climate, some of which are planted in containers. Flowering vines including clematis, coral vine, passion vine, climbing roses and wisteria grow profusely on fences, iron trellises and the house. A bench marking the end of the central axis of the property has angel statues placed on either side, and there are other statues in the parterres.
This garden was damaged extensively by Hurricane Rita in 2005, which felled a large oak tree near the house in the central garden and also destroyed two rose gardens, container gardens, brick walkways and terraces and other shade plants. The hole left from the oak tree was transformed into a brick koi pond surrounded by jasmine and planted antique urns. The garden was restored to its formal symmetry once again in 2008 following damage from Hurricane Ike. One twenty-five-year-old climbing rose in this garden has survived both storms.
Persons associated with the garden include Captain Gerald Johnson (former owner, 1939-1941); Mr. and Mrs. Robert Robertson (former owners, 1941-1954); Mr. and Mrs. Joe Broussard (former owners, 1954-1982); and Steinman and Goldman (architects, 1939).

Place:
Crenshaw Farm (Beaumont, Texas).
United States of America -- Texas -- Jefferson -- Beaumont
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, feature map, plant list, photocopied article about the property, and a printout from the property's website.
General:
Located on 38.5 acres in southeast Texas, the Crenshaw Farm combines private living and public space for the benefit of the community. The property is divided by a road. A private home and garden is located on the north side of the road, and on the other side is 8.5 acres devoted to an organically sustainable garden and orchard, known as the Brooks Road Community Garden.
The 30 acre tract was virtually treeless rice farmland, which was purchased in 1999 . By 2002, a Tuscan-style home and extensive landscaping was completed. In 2004 the owners bought and transformed the grounds into the European-style farm setting that exists on the property today. The property's once treeless landscape is now a picturesque vista enhanced by red maple, live oak, pecan, Italian cypress, bald cypress, and sycamore trees. The owners had help from landscape architect Rosa Finsley, who encouraged them to install over 1,200 linear feet of English-style garden borders on both sides of a wooden fence along some edges of the property.
The 8.5 acres across the road is where the goal of repurposing the barren rice farmland continues. The garden on this tract of land is raised organically and people from the community are welcome to visit, work in the garden, and to take produce. All extra food gets donated to local soup kitchens. The 8.5 acres was purchased in 2010, and construction on a kitchen-barn began in 2013. Since 2014 a modern greenhouse, wood fencing, brick drives and walks, two ornamental antique barrels, storage buildings, a chicken coop, and bee hives have been added to this side of the property. Crenshaw Farms' greatest accomplishment has been replanting the depleted rice field.
Persons associated with the garden include: Randolph Lombardo (former owner, 1999-2004); Rosa Finsley (landscape architect, 2004).
