Sketches

Collection Creator:
Sanchez, Emilio, 1921-1999  Search this
Extent:
(boxes 5-6, sols 7-11, OV's 12-22, RD 23-24; 2.9 linear ft.)
Type:
Archival materials
Date:
circa 1940-1979, undated
Scope and Contents note:
This series contains hundreds of original sketches by Sanchez, both loose and in sketchbooks. The sketches are primarily in pencil, but some are in ink and some are colored and include layouts for posters, and several proofs for lithographs. In addition to basic sketches capturing Sanchez's impressions drawn in a variety of locations throughout the world, the development of Sanchez's work on certain subjects is documented more fully in large groups of sketches, such as those of Boston City Hall and of his illustrations for the book Arte del Peru Colonial.

The majority of the sketches are of buildings and of architectural and interior features of buildings, particularly windows and doorways. Additional subjects include landscapes, seascapes, cityscapes, flowers and plants, sunsets, and figure drawings. Many of the sketches have notations by Sanchez indicating the location in which they were made or the project they were associated with, and some are dated. Notations may also indicate the medium of artwork, or the name of the individual work, that a sketch was used for.
Arrangement note:
The series is organized into three subseries: 6.1: Sketchbooks, 1948-1976, undated

6.2: Loose Sketches, circa 1940-1979, undated

6.3: Oversized Loose Sketches, 1945-1979, undated
Wherever possible, sketches are arranged alphabetically according to locations or subjects identified by Sanchez, and then chronologically. Undated sketches have been placed at the beginning of the appropriate subject category; unidentified sketches are at the end of the appropriate subseries. Occasionaly, subjects or locations may overlap, for example: sketches of doorways will be filed by location if one is noted on the sketch, but will otherwise be filed under "Unidentified Doorways."
