1Creator/Collector:  M. Knoedler & Co

 Title:  M. Knoedler & Co. records  
 Dates:  approximately 1848-1971 
 Abstract:  The records of M. Knoedler & Co. document the business of the prominent American art dealer from the mid-19th century to 1971. The archive traces the development of the once provincial American art market into one of the world's leading art centers and the formation of the private art collections that would ultimately establish many of the nation's leading art museums, such as the Frick Collection and the National Gallery of Art. It contains crucial provenance information on numerous artworks in private and public collections in the United States. The archive includes stock books, sales books and commission books; correspondence with collectors, artists, art dealers and other associates; photographs of the artworks sold by the gallery; records from the firm's offices in London, Paris and other cities; exhibition files; framing and restoration records, and records of the firm's Print Department. 
 Number:  2012.M.54 
2Creator/Collector:  Duveen Brothers
Requires cookie*
 Title:  Duveen Brothers stock documentation from the dealer's library,  
 Dates:  1829-1965 
 Abstract:  These records from the art dealer Duveen Brothers formed part of the firm's library holdings that were purchased in 1965 by The Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute in Williamstown, Massachusetts. They document the Duveen Brothers' cataloging, research, exhibition work, and publication of works of art and collections. They consist of brochures, photographs, collectors' files, scrapbooks, correspondence and authentication records from art experts, notably Bernard Berenson. Also included in these records are the papers of Italian Renaissance art historian R. (Robert) Langton Douglas.

3Creator/Collector:  G. Cramer Oude Kunst

 Title:  G. Cramer Oude Kunst gallery records  
 Dates:  1873-1998, bulk 1938-1998 
 Abstract:  The records of G. Cramer Oude Kunst in The Hague in the Netherlands document the gallery's business since the early 1900s until the late 1990s, with the bulk of the collection dating from 1938 to 1998. Of particular research value are Gustav Cramer's WWII correspondence and sales receipts regarding his dealings with Nazi agents for Adolf Hitler's museum in Linz. The archive may be the only uncensored dealer archive documenting the international art market in Nazi-occupied Europe. It comprises over sixty years of the gallery's correspondence and financial records. Also present is a portion of the photographic archive, including circa 500 glass plate negatives, and sales catalogs. 
 Number:  2001.M.5 
4Creator/Collector:  Suhr, William, 1896-1984
Requires cookie*
 Title:  William Suhr papers  
 Dates:  1846-2003 (bulk 1927-1982) 
 Abstract:  An American paintings conservator trained in Berlin, William Suhr worked under Wilhelm Reinhold Valentiner at the Detroit Institute of Arts beginning in 1927, and was the conservator of the Frick Collection from 1935 to 1977. He also maintained private clients including individuals and major American museums in Cleveland, New York, Detroit, San Francisco, Chicago, and St. Louis. After World War II he worked closely with clients active in the New York art market, particularly the dealer Rosenberg and Stiebel. The bulk of the collection is comprised of photographs of paintings treated by Suhr, along with his treatment notes. The collection also contains business papers, including correspondence, articles about Suhr, personal papers, and documentation of Suhr's own artwork.

5Creator/Collector:  William and Noma Copley Foundation
Requires cookie*
 Title:  William and Noma Copley foundation and collection records  
 Dates:  1954-1980 
 Abstract:  Records document the William and Noma Copley Foundation's grant program for composers and artists, 1954-1966. Richard Hamilton's correspondence, 1960-1966, largely concerns the Foundation's monograph series, which he edited. Other papers, including correspondence with artists, files regarding exhibitions and insurance, and photographs, document the Copleys' personal art collection, known for its large number of Surrealist works. Files dated after 1966 primarily contain Noma Copley's correspondence with artists. 
 Number:  880403 
6Creator/Collector:  Duveen Brothers
Requires cookie*
 Title:  Duveen Brothers records  
 Dates:  1876-1981 (bulk 1909-1964) 
 Abstract:  Notable art dealers from the late nineteenth to the mid-twentieth century. The records provide a detailed view of the Duveen Brothers business activities in London, Paris, and New York. Although the archive extends from 1876 to 1981, the bulk of the material dates from Joseph Duveen's tenure as president of the firm, 1909-1939, and the period 1939-1964 when Edward Fowles directed the firm (with Armand Lowengard until 1943). The mass of documents, such as cables and letters, invoices, and ledger and stock books, give a day-by-day account of art dealing, business strategy, and the individuals involved. Included are some records from the Kleinberger Galleries, 1906-1971, and 6 linear feet of Edward Fowles's papers.
