Series 1: Charles Yardley Turner Scrapbook of Letters from Frederick S. Church and John LaFarge, 1894-1913 (3 folders; 27 items)
Biographical / Historical:
New York, N.Y. based painter and etcher Charles Yardley Turner (1850-1918) and painter Frederick Stuart Church were close friends and, according to Ruel Pardee Tolman, "were called 'the long and short of it.' Every Christmas morning they planned to have breakfast together."
Provenance:
The Charles Yardley Turner scrapbook of letters from Frederick S. Church and John LaFarge were transferred to the Archives of American Art from the National Museum of American Art Library in 1981. The letters on reel 3480 were originally donated to the National Collection of Fine Arts by Turner's sister, Mrs. A. T. Yardley, on July 17, 1926. Letters on reel D8 are from an unknown donor, possibly one "Whittenberg" in Oct. 1958.
