Abstract: The Émile-Jacques Ruhlmann drawings and papers detail the later work of this French Art Deco interior and furniture designer. This collection of interior design drawings displays a cross section of Ruhlmann's most productive period and forms a significant resource for the study of the history of modernism in French decorative arts. Included in this collection are twenty-four portfolios for seventeen design projects that document perspective views, floor plans, and interior design details. Materials are largely visual, comprised of original sketches, drawings, stencils, and renderings. Scattered throughout the collection are several handwritten notes, financial statements, and textual records.
