General:
This Modernist garden was created right after World War II, designed by Christopher Tunnard. It still survives today, perhaps the only existing commissioned landscape design by the man who influenced many of the United States most celebrated postwar architects and landscape architects. At only 65' x 42', the garden has an extreme austerity in design with a hint of luxury in its fountains, thick hedges and sculpture. The plants are cut and trimmed into an ordained shape, and the pattern is designed to be seen from the ground, where its curves interlock and turn back on themselves. Only two kinds of trees are used - lime (Tilia) and arbor vitae (Thuja); and three kinds of permanent plants - ivy (Hedera), box (Buxus) and yew (Taxus). The lime trees will eventually be pleached into an architectural block to throw the ground pattern into even greater contrast. The ivy is in slightly raised mounds, edged in places with small summer flowers. The bedding plants are purple and white petunias with carnations and lemon-yellow thunbergias." The sculpture, 'Chimerical Font,' by Jean Arp, is golden bronze centered on a plinth in a black lacquered rectangular pool. The other pools (two circular, one biomorphic) are shallow and painted white. Of note are the unusual shapes of the pruned boxwoods in the shapes of question marks and semi-colons; the colorful flowers; and the 6th linden along the left and end wall, now covered in Boston ivy, and originally painted white to complete a design that very much relied on strong figure-ground relationship.
Christopher Tunnard (1910-1979) was born in Canada, moved to England in 1929 and received a diploma from the Royal Horticultural Society the following year. The period of the eclectic Arts and Crafts movement (which he characterized as "romantic trivialization" of garden design) prompted him to introduce his Modernist views of landscape design. This approach avoided decoration, sentimentality and classical allusion "in favor of functional minimalist designs that provided a friendly and hospitable milieu for rest and recreation." After 10 years practicing garden and landscape work, he immigrated to America at the invitation of Walter Gropius to teach at Harvard's Graduate School of Design (1938-1943). Following the War, Tunnard taught city planning at Yale, advancing to professor and chairman of this department; he did little garden design from that point forward, making this 1949 garden probably one of his last commissions. For the final thirty years of his life, Tunnard put his energies into urban planning and the preservation of historic buildings; his publications in this area include "Man-made America: Chaos or Control?" (1963) which won the 1964 National Book Award in Science, Philosophy and Religion. It is perhaps ironic that Christopher Tunnard ended up of very much the same sentiment as his American patron, Mrs. George W. (Katherine) Warren, founder of the Preservation Society of Newport County (1945). In "Pioneers of American Landscape Design," (2000), Lance Neckar notes that "by the time of his death, he had come full circle to be identified with conservation-and-preservation-oriented attributes toward city revitalization which were antithetical to the Modern movement" that Tunnard had originally espoused.
Tunnard's patrons, George and Katherine Warren, who purchased the property on Mill Street in 1933, chose a part of Newport that was then considered "the other side of the tracks" by their social set, most of whom resided out on Ocean Drive. In New York, where the couple lived "off season," Katherine Warren collected modern art and was on the Advisory Committee of the Museum of Modern Art. Interesting to note that the garden was commissioned in 1949 and distinguished by its functional, minimalist modern design in sharp contrast with its early Federal-style house. The Warrens also added two glass-enclosed rooms on the first and second floors of their home on the garden side, presumably to enjoy this new garden to its full extent. Mrs. Warren died in 1976, bequeathing her home to the Preservation Society of Newport County, which moved its offices to this location in 1977. While the Preservation Society of Newport County owned the property, the garden was heavily shaded by a large beech tree and had become overgrown. It was maintained as they found it without major renovation. The current owner moved into the Mill Street house in 1994 and restored the Tunnard garden in 2001 and has proven to be a conscientious caretaker of this rare, nationally significant garden.
Persons associated with the garden include Tanner Family (former owners, 1776-1807); Samuel F. Gardner (former owner, 1807-1809); Robert Lawton (former owner, 1809-1810); Penelope Lawton (former owner, 1810-1822); Reverend Samuel Austin (former owner, 1822-1826); Francis Henderson (former owner, 1826-1857); Fanny S. Brinley (former owner, 1857-1863); Sallie C. Lawrence (former owner, 1863-1886); Allen G. Paul (former owner, 1886-1916); Florence S. Paul (former owner, 1916-1932); George and Katherine Warren (former owners, 1932-1977); Preservation Society of Newport County (former owner, 1977-1994); Christopher Tunnard (landscape designer, 1949); Eusebio Pleitez (gardener, 2001- ).

Biographical Note:
Erwin Panofsky (1892-1968), a native of Hannover, Germany, grew up in Berlin where he received a classical education at the Joachimsthalsches Gymnasium. He then studied at the universities of Berlin, Munich and Freiburg/Breslau. After earning a Ph. D. in 1914 from the University of Freiburg, Panofsky spent three years on post-doctoral study in Berlin, and during this period, married fellow student and art historian Dorothea (Dora) Mosse.

Although primarily a scholar of Gothic and Renaissance art, Panofsky had wide interests. Erwin Panofsky was a highly respected and influential scholar who was a much loved, generous, and encouraging teacher of several generations of productive scholars. Many students became his life long friends, and quite a few of them considered Panofsky the greatest teacher they had ever encountered.

He taught at the University of Hamburg from 1920 to1933, and during this period began to develop iconographic approaches to interpreting art through analysis of its subject matter's symbols, themes, and history. His work in this area eventually had international influence in the development of art history as a discipline.

Beginning in 1931, Panofsky taught at New York University, spending alternate semesters at the University of Hamburg until the Nazis dismissed all Jewish officials. He and his family fled Germany and came to the United States in 1933. During the academic year 1934/35, Panofsky held concurrent appointments at both New York University and Princeton University. He joined the faculty of the newly formed Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton, New Jersey, in 1935, where he remained until his retirement in 1962. In addition, he continued to teach graduate seminars at New York University and Princeton Universtiy.

He was a prolific writer, and his many books and articles represent some of the 20th century's most important writings in the field of art history, particularly in the realm of iconography. Among his books are: "Idea": Ein Beitrag zur Begriffsgeschichte der älteren Kunstheorie (1924) [translated later as Idea, The History of a Concept], Studies in Iconology (1939), Codex Huygens and Leonardo da Vinci's Art Theory (1940), The Life and Art of Albrecht Dürer (1943), Abbot Suger on the Abbey Church of St. Denis and Its Art Treasures (1946), Gothic Architecture and Scholasticism (1951), Early Netherlandish Painting: Its Origins and Character (1953), Meaning and the Visual Arts (1950), Renaissance and Renascences in Western Art (1960), The Iconography of Correggio's Camera di San Paolo (1961), and Problems in Titian, Mostly Iconographic (1964).

Panofsky wrote on subjects other than art history. He was an authority on Mozart, and also wrote about the history of cinema. His 1934 article "On Movies" (originally published in Princeton University's Bulletin of the Department of Art and Archaeology), remains a highly regarded work on the subject.

The recipient of numerous honorary degrees, Panofsky most prized the first from the University of Utrecht, 1936, as it brought great satisfaction at a time when he was still coping with the trauma of expatriation. He was a member of the American Philosophical Society, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, the British Academy, and several other foreign academies. In 1962, Panofsky received the Haskins Medal awarded by The Medieval Academy of America for a distinguished book in medieval history.

His wife Dora Mosse Panofsky died in 1965; in 1966, he married Gerda Soergel, also an art historian. Erwin Panofsky died in Princeton, New Jersey, March 14, 1968.
Related Material:
Among the Archives' holdings is a collection of letters from Erwin Panofsky to art historians Wolfgang Stechow (1930-1931) and Lili Fröhlich-Bum (1931), and to Brooklyn Museum art librarian William B. Walker (1960) which is available on 35-mm microfilm reel 5136, frames 812-824. The letters to Stechow were written as he was preparing a review of Panofsky's book, Hercules am Scheidewege und andere antike Bildstoffe inder neueren Kunst, and provide additional information not found in the book itself. The letter to Mr. Walke is in Englishe, and the remainder are in German. The originals are still in the possession of Irving Lavin, who found them in Stechow's copy of Hercules am Scsheidewege given him by Mrs. Stechow.

Records of Staff: Directors and School of Fine Arts Faculty

Collection Creator:
American Academy in Rome  Search this
Type:
Archival materials
Date:
1903-1947, undated
Scope and Contents note:
This subseries consists primarily of the office files of the Rome office directors but also contains four folders of records of the School of Fine Arts faculty. The records document the administration of the School of Fine Arts, the School of Classical Studies, and their facilities in Rome. The most extensive and complete files are those of Gorham Phillips Stevens (1.25 linear feet, reels 5796-5798). Records of other directors, H. Siddons Mowbray (reel 5795), George Breck (reel 5795), Jesse Benedict Carter (reel 5795-5796), James Monroe Hewlett (reel 5798), Chester H. Aldrich (reel 5798), Amey Aldrich (reel 5798), Charles R. Morey (reel 5798), Laurance P. Roberts (reel 5798), Frank P. Fairbanks (reel 5799), and Felix Lamond (reel 5799) are quite incomplete and range in size from 1 folder to 0.5 linear feet.

H. Siddons Mowbray's correspondence includes letters to McKim about the Villa Aurora, expenses, exhibition, and the King and Queen attending the academy opening; a letter from Charles Keck about his studio; and correspondence concerning endowment fundraising.

George Breck's correspondence includes a letter to Secretary Millet about appraisal of the Villa Mirafiore and Madam Loyson's idea of starting a girls' school in Rome that would be a branch of the American Academy in Rome. It also includes letters from Rockefeller's secretary declining to participate in the academy's proposed endowment.

General correspondence of Jesse Benedict Carter concerns competitions, use of the terms "fellowship" and "scholarship," an exhibition, Committee on the School of Classical Studies business, a request for extension of fellowship time, and activities of fellows. Endowment fundraising correspondence concerns Carter's lecturing activities on behalf of the academy's endowment fund and appeals to individuals for contributions. A folder concerning the Villa Mirafiore contains correspondence regarding an agreement to use the Villa Mirafiore as a hospice for mutilated Italian soldiers.

Gorham Phillips Stevens Stevens served as director in 1912. During Carter's tenure as director, from 1913 to 1917, Stevens was director of the School of Fine Arts and served as acting director during Carter's frequent absences. He was acting director following Carter's death in 1917, and in 1919 became the director. His general correspondence includes "Suggestions for the Management of the Academy during the absence of the Director in America;" correspondence about a proposed publication; requests for museum passes; letters of introduction; inquiries about fellowship competitions; travel arrangements; letters concerning shipment of art work, concerns about war conditions, and Daniel Chester French's opinion of the proposed purchase of an enlarging machine for the sculptors; George Breck's comments on prices set by artists for their work; and letters concerning summer school, housing for women, the possibility of McKim's daughter giving his medals and diplomas to the academy, and the trustees decision to inaugurate a new educational policy under a new director.

There is one folder of material relating to Amey Aldrich, sister of Chester H. Aldrich, who acted as an assistant and official hostess during his tenure, and probably served as acting director for a brief time following Mr. Aldrich's death. The folder includes a report on the administrative situation of the academy, ideas about closing the academy during World War II, and evaluation of staff. Material also concerns repairs to buildings, staffing, and receipts for academy funds held by Chester Aldrich and returned after his death.
Arrangement note:
Records of the directors comprise the bulk of the subseries and are first in the subseries. Records of faculty members Frank P. Fairbanks and Felix Lamond are at the end of the subseries. Director and faculty member names are indicated in bold at the top of each file group.

File groups for each individual begin with any general correspondence and are then arranged alphabetically by subject or name of individual to whom the file relates.
