Collection Inventories and Finding Aids

The Special Collections and Institutional Archives departments create finding aids for the Getty Research Institute's archival and visual resource collections and for a few historical records of the J. Paul Getty Trust. A "finding aid" describes the scope and contents of a group of records and provides an inventory of materials within the records.

1Creator/Collector:  M. Knoedler & Co.

 Title:  M. Knoedler & Co. artist files  
 Dates:  approximately 1890-1971 
 Abstract:  The M. Knoedler & Co. artist files form part of the records of the firm of M. Knoedler & Co. described in the related finding aid for the collection. Due to their size, the artist files are described separately from the rest of the archive. The M. Knoedler & Co. artist files primarily document artworks handled by the New York office of Knoedler & Co. and represent the bulk of the materials in Series VII. Photographs. The photographs, along with research and descriptive information, document artworks purchased and sold by the firm or on consignment at the firm, as well as artworks offered for sale to the firm, but not acquired. In addition to photographs, each artist file typically includes "pedigree" documentation of the artworks, such as ownership history, bibliographies and expertise documentation. The photographs provide a visual record of the condition of the artwork at the time it was in the firm's stock and enable to distinguish works with similar titles or works whose titles have changed over time. Often they are the last record of works whose location is presently unknown. The titles indicated for the works are derived from the titles that Knoedler staff assigned the works in the stock books, the sales books or the inventory cards. When possible, abbreviations of the titles in the archive have been expanded and spelling mistakes corrected, but no attempt has been made to update the titles to current standards of the repositories for these works. When different sources in the archive provided titles that differed considerably, the different versions have been provided, when possible. The main finding aid for the The M. Knoedler & Co. records is available here:
