Title: M. Knoedler & Co. records
Dates: approximately 1848-1971
Number: 2012.M.54
Creator/Collector: M. Knoedler & Co
Extent: 3042.6 Linear Feet (5554 boxes, 17 flat file folders)
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.
