Arrangement:
Organized chronologically.
Biographical / Historical:
Beginning in his youth Thomas Brumbaugh collected autographed correspondence. Mr. Brumbaugh's collecting instincts resulted in a unique collaborative collection providing a glimpse into the lives of a variety of 19th and 20th century American artists, such as Abbott Thayer. Brumbaugh was a professor of fine arts at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, and author of many articles on American art and artists.
Oliver Wolcott Gibbs was an American playwright and writer who lived in New York City. He wrote for The New Yorker and worked as a humorist and theatre critic. Gibbs was a direct descendent of President Martin Van Buren.
Barry Faulkner was an American artist who studied with Abbott H. Thayer, George de Forest Brush, and Augustus Saint-Gaudens. Along with sculptor Sherry Edmundson Fry, Faulkner organized artists to train as camouflage specialists. Faulkner was born in New Hampshire, traveled to Europe as he studied art, and then returned to New York, where he began work as a mural artist. He completed "The Constitution" and "The Declaration" in 1936 for the Rotunda for the Charters of Freedom at the National Archives.
Isaac Soyer was a social realist painter from New York City who used working-class and unemployed people as the subjects in his paintings. He also painted portraits for friends, and used his friends and family as models for his work.
Louis Hardin, commonly known as "Moondog," was a blind American composer and poet who lived on the streets of New York for a large portion of his life. He wore clothes inspired by the Norse god Thor, giving him the epithet, "The Viking of 6th Avenue." Moondog was influenced by ambient noises in his environment, and Native American music.
Henry Rox was a German artist who studied in Berlin and Paris before settling in the United States in 1938, where he taught at many universities, including Mount Holyoke College. He is known for fruit and vegetable photo-sculptures.
Ibram Lassaw was an American sculptor in the 20th century. Born in Egypt to Russian parents, Lassaw grew up in Brooklyn, New York. He was influenced by Alexander Calder and Wassily Kandinsky. Lassaw created open-space sculptural abstractions with metal, and helped abstract art grow in the United States.
Harry Rosin was an American sculptor born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. After working around the area following his studies at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, he traveled to Tahiti, where he married his wife. He is known for his iron sculptures.

Date:
1823-1851
Scope and Contents:
Greenough's sketchbook from his studies in Rome (1826) and 139 drawings (1823 - ca. 1851) by Greenough from the Petit Sully Collection.
Biographical / Historical:
Sculptor; Florence, Italy. First of the American neoclassical sculptors, Greenough was born into a well-to-do family, grew up in Boston, Massachusetts, and graduated from Harvard University in 1825. In that year, he went to Rome to pursue classical studies, until illness forced his return to America in 1827. The following year, he returned to Italy and established a studio in Florence. In 1832, Greenough received a commission from Congress to execute a colossal GEORGE WASHINGTON, the first major sculptural commission given to an American. Although he worked in Florence, the majority of his patrons were Americans.
Provenance:
Microfilm was donated by Nathalia Wright, a professor at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, who collected this material in preparation for her books, HORATIO GREENOUGH, THE FIRST AMERICAN SCULPTOR (Philadelphia: University of Pennsylvania Press, 1963) and THE LETTERS OF HORATIO GREENOUGH (Madison: Wisconsin: The University of Wisconsin Press, 1972). Ms. Wright sold the collection to a private collector, circa 1987. The group has since been added to the collection of Mr. and Mrs. John F. McGuigan Jr.
