Photographs

Collection Creator:
Greene, Balcomb, 1904-1990  Search this
Extent:
(Boxes 7-10; 2.6 linear ft.)
Type:
Archival materials
Date:
circa 1880s-1996
Scope and Contents note:
Photographs are of art work, events, exhibition installations, miscellaneous subjects, people, and places.

Around 1940, Balcomb became interested in photography. He did not develop his own film, but preferred to produce the prints himself. He sometimes used photographs as notes for planning paintings and often experimented with lighting to produce different effects. It is highly likely that Balcomb took many of the photographs of his own and Gertrude's work that survive among their papers. Many of the photographs - especially those of art work - bear evidence of smoke and water damage sustained in the 1996 fire that destroyed Balcomb Greene's studio.

Photographs of people include Balcomb Greene, Gertrude Greene, Terryn Greene, family, friends and other individuals (identified and unidentified). There are pictures of Balcomb with fellow students, friends, juries, and Terryn; one photograph of Balcomb with others [probably artist colleagues] is by Hans Namuth. Also found are photographs of three generations of the Greene family showing Balcomb as a young boy (identified as John Wesley or Wesley on the prints), and a few of his mother's relatives.

Events include photographic documentation of the damage caused by the 1996 fire that destroyed Balcomb Greene's studio. Miscellaneous subjects are Greene's Rolls Royce, and pet cats and dogs.

Places recorded are: Greene's boyhood homes and churches in New York, Iowa, and unidentified locations; his mother's family house; Gertrude and Balcomb's cottage in Hopewell Junction, New York, where they spent summers before building their house at Montauk; the Greenes' house at Montauk; Gertrude's studio; travel pictures of Europe and Asia; and unidentified interiors.

Also found in this series are a small number of negatives, 35-mm slides, and color transparencies that document art work, miscellaneous subjects, people, and places.
