Duveen Brothers stock documentation from the dealer's library
Series IX. Robert Langton Douglas papers, 1916-1951 8 Linear Feet (9 boxes)
Italian Renaissance scholar R. (Robert) Langton Douglas (1864-1951), a specialist of the Sienese school, served as director of the National Gallery of Ireland in Dublin (until 1923), and as advisor to J. Pierpont Morgan and to Wilhelm Bode for the Kaiser-Friedrich Museum in Berlin for the purchase of old master paintings. He was approached by Duveen Brothers to catalog collections and regarding attribution questions, and in 1940, he moved to New York. He married his secretary and research assistant, Jean Langton Douglas, who retained his papers upon his death. She later married Edward Fowles, the last president of Duveen Brothers.
The series contains Langton Douglas' résumé; typewritten lectures; notes; letters; excerpts of publications including reviews of a book on Leonardo da Vinci; and scrapbooks of clippings compiled by Douglas. Also present are portfolios containing folders of typed articles on art and notes for publications listed by subjects and dates.
