Container List

Series I. Correspondence, 1948-1996, undated 2.3 linear feet (6 boxes)
Series I consists primarily of letters from collectors and dealers seeking attribution advice, but also includes professional and personal correspondence from other art historians and colleagues. The most substantive correspondence is with Eugenio Battisti, Robert Enggass and, particularly, Denis Mahon. Correspondence in the miscellaneous folders, filed by letter of the alphabet, typically consists of one to three letters per individual or institution.
Arrangement
Correspondence is filed alphabetically by surname or corporate name, either in its own file or in one labelled by letter of the alphabet, e.g. "A" miscellanous. Unidentified materials, one file of material addressed to Salerno's son, Pietro Paolo, and one file of images labelled "Luigi Salerno Collection," are located at the end of the series. The original order of the papers has been maintained whenever possible. As a result, some correspondence is not filed in this series, but may instead be found amongst the Series III. Research files or Series IV. Photographs according to topic, exhibition or artist. These letters have been left in situ, in the order in which they were made or received and set aside by Luigi Salerno.
A, 1955-1992

Series II. Expert opinions, 1975-1984, undated 0.1 linear feet (1 box)
Series II contains documents in which Salerno states his expert opinion regarding works of art, primarily in an official capacity. The series includes a bound inventory, printed in 1980, of the collection of Saverio Pugliese entitled "Collezioni di quadri," and Salerno's undated appraisal of these works. It also includes copies of records related to the Tribunale di Roma, for which Salerno served as an expert witness.
Arrangement
Files are arranged alphabetically. These documents were originally interfiled with the correspondence. They have been separated into their own series based upon their distinct form and function. They were not filed with any accompanying correspondence.

Series III. Research files, 1950-1992, undated 11.6 linear feet (26 boxes)
The research files cover artists and topics, as well as project files related to exhibitions, major publications and positions of employment. Research areas with a particularly strong concentration of materials include: Caravaggio, Guercino, Salvator Rosa, still-life painting, vedute and landscape painting. The wide-ranging nature of Salerno's scholarly interests is well documented, albeit in less depth, in the final subseries on other artists and topics.
Materials in this series include correspondence, extensive handwritten and typescript notes, a large number of offprints, extracts and articles, and numerous images including black-and-white photographs, color photographs, transparencies, black-and-white negatives and photomechanical reproductions of works of art, as well as publication drafts, proofs, essays and checklists.
Arrangement
The series is arranged in seven subseries: Series III.A. Caravaggio, 1954-1992, bulk 1970-1985, undated; Series III.B. Guercino, 1952, 1980-1991, undated; Series III.C. Still-life painting, 1956-1990, bulk 1980-1990, undated; Series III.D. Rosa, Salvator, 1950-1991, undated; Series III.E. Landscapes and vedute, 1967-1991, undated; Series III.F. Il Settecento a Roma, exhibition, 1957-1959, undated; Series III.G. Other artists and topics, 1950-1975, undated.
In contrast to the photograph archive described in Series IV, whose organization is made evident by Salerno's clearly labeled enclosures, Salerno's research files were not filed in strict order, making their arrangement challenging. Whenever possible, the files were maintained in the order in which they were received. In other instances, files found in notable disarray have been arranged by artist, topic, publication or exhibition in line with the loose organizational schema utilized by Salerno.
Series III.A. Caravaggio, 1954-1992, bulk 1970-1985, undated
The subseries includes numerous images and extensive notes regarding Caravaggio and his followers. Also included are articles, offprints and clippings related to the artist, a number of galleys from Benedict Nicolson's posthumously published volume The International Caravaggesque Movement, exhibition object checklists, draft essays by Salerno and others, technical examinations, conference remarks and correspondence. The bulk of the correspondence is from Denis Mahon.
In 1965 Salerno was invited to Pennsylvania State University to teach a graduate seminar on Caravaggio during the fall term. The file on this seminar includes correspondence from students, bibliographies, notes and several sketches.
In the 1970s Salerno and Denis Mahon were heavily involved in the rediscovery of two works acquired by American museums. The first of these, Martha and Mary Magdalene (also known as the Conversion of the Magdalene or the Alzaga Caravaggio), was acquired by the Detroit Institute of Arts in 1973. Files on the Detroit Magdalene include photographs of the work, an undated examination of the painting by Giovanni Corradini and drafts, in Italian, of Salerno's 1974 article entitled "The Art-Historical Implications of the Detroit 'Magdalen'," which appeared in The Burlington Magazine. The file also contains a technical examination of the painting by James L. Greaves and Meryl Johnson.
The second painting was the Cleveland Museum of Art's The Cruxifixion of Saint Andrew. Files regarding the St. Andrew include numerous photographs, negatives and transparencies of the work, press releases from the museum regarding the acquisition and a photocopied, annotated draft of the footnotes for Ann Tzeutschler Lurie's article on the painting. The file also includes a galley of Lurie's article, 1977 newspaper clippings from "El Pais" regarding the painting's export from Spain, a copy of a questionnaire filled out by conservator Jan Dik and a photocopied statement of facts regarding the painting's sale.
In 1974 Salerno was invited to speak at the Convegno internazionale di studi caravaggeschi in Bergamo and this subseries includes his remarks. It also includes research material and correspondence from Denis Mahon and Mia Cinotti related to Salerno's 1984 Apollo article "Caravaggio: A Reassessment." In addition, the papers contain material on the 1985 Metropolitan Museum of Art exhibition The Age of Caravaggio.

In a June 1984 article published in Apollo titled Caravaggio: A Reassessment Salerno reviews Mia Cinotti and G. A. Dell'Acqua's work on the artist which appeared in I Pittori bergamaschi dal XIII al XIX secolo. In his review Salerno assesses the publication in juxtaposition to a book by Howard Hibbard released in the same year and discusses the painting Boy Paring a Bitter Fruit in detail.

Series III.B. Guercino, 1952, 1980-1991, undated
This subseries contains material Salerno amassed while researching the monograph I dipinti del Guercino, which he published in conjunction with Denis Mahon in 1988. The files include a number of photographs of works attributed to Guercino, annotated indices from the 1988 book, photocopies of articles and essays on the artist, Mahon's 1981 Apollo articles on Guercino, drafts of a letter regarding La Sibilla Frigia, correspondence and invoices related to the conservation of the Santa Barbara, extensive hand-written and typed notes, many on works included in the catalogue raisonné. Notes on particular paintings are written and annotated by both Mahon and Salerno.
The subseries also includes correspondence, scattered throughout the research files. Correspondents include: Prisco Bagni, Creighton Gilbert, Laurence B. Kanter, D. Stephen Pepper, Karin Rådström and Ksenija Rozman. A significant portion of the correspondence is actually addressed to, or written by, Mahon, rather than Salerno. Additional materials include, preliminary lists of works to be included in the catalog and their corresponding catalog numbers, notes from the Vatican archives and a summary description of Semiramis Receiving Word of the Revolt of Babylon, Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
Finally, the subseries includes a number of photographic permissions, invoices and receipts related to the illustrations reproduced in the 1988 volume. The folders of permissions are interspersed with additional correspondence which is not related to the Guercino monograph, but appears to have been filed in this location because it was received by Salerno contemporaneously. Some of the letters request attribution advice while others grant permission for reproductions of works attributed to Salvator Rosa and other artists. Typically, only a single letter is present from the correspondents listed below. Correspondents in this section include: Andrzej S. Ciechanowiecki of the Heim Gallery, John Hand of the National Gallery of Art (U.S.), Richard Herner of P. & D. Colnaghi & Co., David Kolch of the Art Institute of Chicago, T.D. Llewellyn of Sotheby's, Ann Tzeutschler Lurie of the Cleveland Museum of Art, Lynn Federle Orr of the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, Wolfgang Prohaska of the Kunsthistoriches Museum Wien, Pierre Rosenberg of the Musée du Louvre and William H. Wilson of the John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art.

Series III.C. Still-life painting, 1956-1990, bulk 1980-1990, undated
In 1984, Ugo Bozzi Editore published Salerno's work La natura morta italiana. The publication of this monograph resulted in a surge of correspondence with accompanying photographs, requesting attribution advice. The influx of new information on the subject prompted Salerno to write a second volume Nuovi studi su la natura morta italiana, which appeared in 1989.
In the course of researching these volumes Salerno amassed a huge number of images of still-life paintings or natura morta. The subseries primarily consists of black-and-white photographs, but also includes photomechanical reproductions of paintings affixed to large sheets of cardstock, possibly gleaned from auction catalogs. Frequently the cardstock is labeled and organized by the artist's last name. Other photographic images in the subseries do not appear to be in a particular order. Many, but not all, of the artists represented are those featured in Salerno's 1984 work. Additional images of still life painters may be found in the photograph series, organized by artist name.
Papers include notes on particular artists, extracts, an exhibition catalog and correspondence from individuals and institutions seeking Salerno's aid in attributing paintings or congratulating him on his publications. Some of the correspondence is not related to still-life painting and appears to have been filed with this material because it was received by Salerno during the time period when he was active in this research area.

Series III.E. Landscapes and vedute, 1967-1991, undated
A significant portion of the subseries relates to the planning of an unrealized 1971 show Paesaggio e veduta a Roma dal Seicento all'Ottocento. Materials related to the exhibition include annotated object checklists, notes, loan forms, institutional correspondence approving and rejecting loans and correspondence from the municipal government of Rome, as well as personal correspondence with Denis Mahon, Helen Mullaly and Terence Mullaly. The file also includes an object checklist from the Victoria and Albert Museum's 1968 exhibition Englishmen in Italy. "Post exhibition" material contains several drafts of an outline of complaints addressed to the mayor of Rome regarding the show's cancellation and a version signed by Andrea Busiri Vici, Salerno and Giuliano Briganti.
Repurposing his research from this aborted exhibition, Salerno published a three-volume, bilingual edition on Roman landscape painting entitled Pittori di paesaggio del Seicento a Roma, or, Landscape Painters of the 17th Century in Rome (1977-1980). Salerno's last major publication I pittori di vedute in Italia: (1580-1830), appeared in 1991. Although Salerno published separate works on landscape painting and view painting, images and notes regarding artists are frequently intermingled. This subseries includes many black-and-white photographs and photomechanical images of landscapes, view paintings and prints. It also contains notes on individual artists.
Images of various landscape and vedute artists include painters such as: Francesco Albotto, Nicolaas Pietersz Berchem, Canaletto, Gaspard Dughet, Adam Elsheimer, Jean-François Millet, Thomas Patch, Cornelius van Poelenburgh, Adam Pynacker, Salvator Rosa, Herman Saftleven, Willem Schellinks, Israël Silvestre and Thomas Wyck. Notes on individual artists include: Robert Adam, Paolo Anesi, Bernardo Bellotto, Nicolas-Didier Boguet, Charles-Louis Clérisseau, Alexander Cozens, John Robert Cozens, Louis Ducros, Philothée-François Duflos, Jean-Honoré Fragonard, Pier Leone Ghezzi, Hans de Jode, Antonio Joli, Joseph Anton Koch, Hendrik Frans van Lint, Andrea Locatelli, Adrien Manglard, William Marlow, Hubert Robert, Carle Vernet and Claude-Joseph Vernet.

Pittori di paesaggio del Seicento a Roma - Appendix
Includes correspondence from Clovis Whitfield, Daan Cevat, the Germanisches Nationalmuseum and the Toledo Museum of Art, as well as black-and-white photographs, illustration proofs and annotated text proofs for several of the entries. Materials on vedute, which are divided into the categories of foreign artists (artisti stranieri) and Italian painters (pittori italiani), are organized alphabetically by the artist's last name and consist of images, usually one or two per artist, publications and brief notes. Some of the images are the same as those published in the 1991 volume. Illustration proofs are photomechanical, AM halftones in blue ink. Also includes one letter from Benedict Nicolson, which is entirely unrelated and concerns his publication on Caravaggesque pictures.

Includes 1986-1988 correspondence from Lynn Federle Orr, curator at the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco. Orr was planning a show and sent Salerno a list of artists which she intended to include to ask for his comments. Much of the file consists of photocopies of works of art by these artists. The show was unrealized.
Series III.F. Il Settecento a Roma, exhibition, 1957-1959, undated
Salerno served on the organizing committee of the exhibition Il Settecento a Roma, which took place in 1959. He also contributed entries to the catalog Il Settecento a Roma: Mostra promossa dall'Associazione amici dei musei di Roma, realizzata sotto gli auspici del Ministero della pubblica istruzione e del Comune di Roma: 19 marzo-31 maggio 1959, published by De Luca editore. This subseries contains materials related to the planning of the show. Papers include object checklists, research notes, offprints, correspondence and comments from other exhibition committee members on works being considered for inclusion, in particular, the opinions of Brinsley Ford, Corrado Maltese and Ellis Kirkham Waterhouse appear. Materials on eighteenth century and related artists contain images and notes organized alphabetically by artist last name, typically with one or two photographs and one page of notes enclosed in a paper wrapper. Some, but not all, of these artists appear in the exhibition catalog. It seems that Salerno continued adding to these files in the decades following the show, as they also include a few of the neoclassical artists featured in the 1972 exhibition The Age of Neo-Classicism.

Series III.G. Other artists and topics, 1950-1975, undated
This subseries includes research materials on other artists and topics in which Salerno was interested. Many of the files contain only a single essay draft, photocopy, reprint or offprint. Files on Lanfranco, the Soprintendenza ai monumenti del Lazio, the Carracci family and Gaspard Dughet are among the more substantial.
Early in his career, Salerno published several articles on Lanfranco. Materials related to Lanfranco include extensive research notes, essays, article drafts, images, offprints and correspondence, primarily from Mahon.
Files related to the Soprintendenza primarily contain black-and-white photographs of sites before and after restoration. The bulk of the files contain between two and 15 images. Many of the photographs document damage to buildings prior to treatment, including cracking, flaking and loss. Some illustrate preliminary in-fill treatments or samples of cleaned or treated areas, while others document the final results of restoration work. The majority of the photographs in this section were found in envelopes and folders labeled by Salerno with abbreviated site names. These original containers have been retained. Some of the images in these files may have been gathered in relation to an exhibition of work undertaken by the soprintendenze in Rome and Lazio and a small number are reproduced in the exhibition catalog Tutela e valorizzazione del patrimonio artistico di Roma e del Lazio: Mostra documentaria dell'attività di tutela, restauro, sistemazione museografica e incremento patrimoniale svolta dal 1. gennaio 1963 al 30 marzo 1964 dalle Soprintendenze e dagli Instituti di Roma dipendenti dalla Direzione generale delle antichità e belle arti: Roma, Palazzo Venezia: 12-19 aprile 1964. A few of the files also include Salerno's hand-written notes, sketched floor plans, restoration proposals, typed site summaries, clippings and other research materials.
Materials concerning Gaspard Dughet include a significant number of images of works attributed to the artist, a draft of Salerno's essay "La cronologia di Gaspard Dughet" and extensive research notes and checklists of works attributed to Dughet.
Additional information on other artists and topics that received less coverage are described in greater detail at the file level. Miscellaneous materials which could not be identified are filed at the end of the subseries. It seems that these papers and images may have been gathered by Salerno with the intention of filing them with other related materials; however, they remained unfiled.

Images are a mixture of religious, mythological and historical works, portraiture, nocturnal landscapes, landscapes, trompe l'œil, battle scenes and view paintings. As most of these bear the annotation, "Storia dell'arte, vol. 6" on their verso, the research file may be related to Salerno's essay entitled "Immobilismo politico e accademia," in Storia dell'arte italiana: Dal Cinquecento all'Ottocento: Cinquecento e Seicento (Giulio Einaudi editore, 1981).
Series IV. Photographs, circa 1948-1992, undated 12.85 linear feet (28 boxes, 1 flatfile)
Series IV consists of photographs and other documents organized by artist or topic. These materials are largely undated. The vast majority of the files contain black-and-white photographs of works of art. These photographs were gathered by Salerno from a variety of sources including museums, archives, commercial photographers, auction houses, dealers and private collectors. The series also includes scattered sales catalog pages, journals, articles, offprints, extracts, correspondence, handwritten and typescript notes, color photographs, transparencies, black-and-white negatives, photograph receipts and other documents. Although most letters regarding attribution may be found in Series I. Correspondence, Salerno filed some of these letters and their accompanying photographs with his photograph archive. In instances where this has occurred, the correspondence has been left in situ and a file-level note has been created in the finding aid to alert users to its existence.
Arrangement
The series is arranged in two subseries: Series IV.A. Artists, undated; Series IV.B. Topics, undated.
Folders in this series are arranged alphabetically, largely in the order in which they were maintained by Luigi Salerno. In cases of obvious misfilings, alphabetical order has been restored. The contents of individual folders have not been arranged and remain in the order in which they were received.
Salerno originally stored the images in his photograph archive in eight filing cabinet drawers. He maintained his photograph files in individual envelopes or four-flap enclosures labeled with the last name of a single artist, multiple artists or rarely, a topic, such as "Arti minori" or decorative arts. Groupings of more than one artist in a single enclosure have been maintained, as the groupings appear to be intentional and relate to questions of attribution. These groupings are filed under the artist appearing first in the alphabet. For example, the grouping of Baschenis and Bettera is filed under "Baschenis." Frequently, Salerno labeled the envelopes and folders in this series with only the last name of an artist. Whenever possible, the processor has endeavored to identify the artist's full name for the purposes of clarification and disambiguation. Several folders, without content, have been left as found, where they were filed, as they document Salerno's research, but they are not listed here.
Series IV.A. Artists, undated
Many of the artists represented in this series were featured in Salerno's publications, particularly La natura morta italiana, 1560-1805, I pittori di vedute in Italia (1580-1830) and Pittori di paesaggio del Seicento a Roma. Files concerning artists covered in Salerno's publications often include bibliographical references, brief biographical notes and annotated chronologies of works in the artist's œuvre. It is important to note, however, that the depth of coverage of each artist varies. A number of the artist files contain only a single photograph or auction catalog clipping, while others span several file folders and include a number of photographs, notes and articles. When coverage of an artist is minimal, this has been noted at the file level.

43 21-22 Raphael
Includes works attributed to Raphael and his workshop. Also includes a 1971 letter from Geraldine Keen of The Times, London, who wrote an article about a Raphael smuggled into the United States and acquired by the Boston MFA. The painting was seized by the government and the associated scandal precipitated Perry Rathbone's resignation as museum director in 1972. The letter to Salerno seems to hint that he considered the work spurious. He was likely involved in the case through his work at the Ufficio esportazione. Salerno also published an article entitled "Il Profeta Isaia di Raffaello e il Putto della Accademia di S. Luca," on the restoration work in the Chiesa di Sant'Agostino undertaken by the Soprintendenza. It appeared in a 1960 issue of Bollettino d'arte.

The report discusses the provenance of the Spanish work and several preparatory studies and other versions of the painting in Italy, France and England. Reni's painting of Lucretia is also mentioned in this study.
