René Gimpel Papers

Collection Creator:
Gimpel, René  Search this
Extent:
0.4 Linear feet
Type:
Archival materials
Date:
circa 1890-1966
Scope and Contents:
The series includes an account of Gimpel by a fellow prisoner at Neuengamme concentration camp, and an account of Gimpel's death in 1945. Both accounts are in French.

One folder of letters to Gimpel contains copies and transcripts of letters from Bernard Berenson, Mary Cassatt, Claude Monet, Chaim Soutine, and Paul Verlaine. Correspondence includes original incoming letters and handwritten drafts and typescripts of Gimpel's outgoing letters with associates, collectors, and dealers. The correspondence documents certain sales and prospective sales, and Gimpels's efforts to maintain and further relationships with important clients such as Samuel H. Kress and Florence Libby, in considerable detail. Gimpel's letters to his parents in 1902-1904 are in French, and often contain family gossip or accounts of his day-to-day activities, but also refer to business interests and activities.

Lists comprise five lists of artwork with some prices and dimensions.

There are five photos of Gimpel, and three Gimpel family group photos. There are photos of Ernest Gimpel, including of him outside the Gimpel gallery storefront, and a photo of 3 men outside E. Gimpel & Wildenstein in 1919. Photos of others include Rose Adler, Parisian art dealer Jeanne Bucher, a Duveen family group, and Auguste Renoir, circa 1921. Photographs are copy prints.

Also found are photographs of artwork handled by Gimpel, photos of an unidentified exhibition, photos of the interior of an unidentified London gallery, and one of the interior of Rose Adler's apartment. There is also a photo from a Gimpel exhibition of Modern Book Bindings.

Printed material includes two exhibition catalogs, one at Galerie René Gimpel in circa 1937-1939, and one for a Monet exhibition at the Arts Council of Great Britain, 1957, that includes a description of Monet's Poplars on the Epte as told to Gimpel. Other printed material consists of a book club bulletin with an advertisement for and selection from Gimpel's Diary of an Art Dealer, first published in 1966.

Writings are by Gimpel and include typescripts for three plays, "Noblesse Oblige," "La Deco," and "Notre Dame de la Belle Verriere." There is also a list of Gimpel's "Aphorisms" on art.
