Container List

Series I. Stock books, 1872-1977 83 Linear Feet (60 boxes)
The 60 stock books document acquisitions of paintings, watercolors and other artworks made by M. Knoedler & Co. in New York and in the firm's other offices. Each entry lists the seller from whom Knoedler bought the artwork, and the artist, title and date of the work. Also included is brief information regarding the buyer who purchased the work from Knoedler, along with the sales date.
There are entries relating to the acquisitions of watercolors in the ledgers described in Series I.A., but the bulk of the transactions relating to watercolors are recorded in ledgers listed in Series I.B. M. Knoedler & Co. did not maintain stock books dedicated to artworks such as sculptures, tapestries, or medals. Rare transactions for these are listed in the ledgers described in Series I.A.

Arrangement
Series I. Stock books is arranged in four subseries: I.A. Paintings; I.B. Watercolors; I.C. London; I.D. Others.
Series I.A. Paintings, 1872-1970 24 Linear Feet (11 boxes)
The subseries contains eleven volumes of Knoedler's stock books for paintings acquired by the firm from 1872 to 1970. Stock of paintings was numbered 1 to 17039, a numbering system that was initiated in 1876 with the recording of new acquisitions in stock book number 3 and was in use until December 1927. Beginning in January 1928, a new numbering system was adopted with the letter A preceding the numbers. The first volumes provide indices for steamers that were used for the shipment of the artworks. The later volumes provide indices for the vendors from whom Knoedler acquired the paintings. The first two books record a variety of transactions, including joint acquisitions and commissions from other dealers, such as Goupil.

Series. I.C. London, 1894-1977 36 Linear Feet (30 boxes)
The acquisitions by the London branch of M. Knoedler & Co. are documented in several sets of stock books. These sets contain overlapping information and appear to have been used and maintained by the different offices of the firm. Before January 1928, artworks that had been assigned a stock number upon entering the stock of the London office, were assigned a different stock number when entering the stock of the New York office. Both offices developed separate numbering sequences. Beginning in January 1928 and with the stock number A1, there appears to have been an attempt to unify the numbering sequence of both offices. Other numbering systems consisting of the letters L or F preceding the number indicate inventory from the London and Paris offices, respectively. Are also included in this subseries stock books that were maintained by the London office, but which record transactions by the New York office.
Selected stock books in Series I.C. have been digitized and made available online. Connect to digitized London stock books.

Series III. Commission books, 1879-1973 24 Linear Feet (20 boxes)
Series III. Commission books comprises 20 volumes documenting commissions or consignments. The terms "commission" and "consignment" appear to be used interchangeably in notations appearing throughout the volumes, but the term "commission" is prevalent in the primary set of volumes, which dates from 1879 to 1973. This set records transactions with collectors, artists and other dealers. Beginning in 1946, the firm differentiated works consigned by artists from other types of consignments, recording them in separate ledgers.
Before April 1892, commissions were recorded unnumbered. In April 30, 1892, a new numbering system was adopted with the commissions inventoried by the letter C preceding the numbers. Beginning in January 1928, commissions were inventoried with the letters CA preceding the numbers. For consignments from artists from 1946 to 1972, the letter S precedes the number.
Selected commission books in Series III have been digitized and made available online. Connect to digitized commission books.
Arrangement
Series III. Commission books is arranged in three groupings: Commission books no. 1-no. 6; Transactions with artists; Other ledgers.

Series IV. Inventory cards, 1859-1971 31 Linear Feet (72 boxes)
Series IV. Inventory cards contains cards that record selected acquisitions, consignments and sales of paintings and watercolors by M. Knoedler & Co.'s offices in New York, London and Paris. Notations on the cards also document void transactions, owner credits and trades, and returns to the owner (RTO). While the cards duplicate information found in the stock, sales and commission books, they facilitate the retrieval of information in these ledgers for different types of searches, such as the names of artists, buyers or stock numbers. However, cards only exist for a limited number of M. Knoedler & Co.'s transactions.
In other to facilitate the consultation of the inventory cards, the Getty Research Institute plans on digitizing the entire Series IV.
Arrangement
Series IV. Inventory cards is filed according to seven types, which were defined by the Knoedler firm: customers; buyer-artist; artist-buyer; current alphabetical; current numerical; sold alphabetical; sold numerical.
Under the category Customers, cards contain a summary of transactions, including purchases, sales, consignments, and shared acquisitions with other dealers. Under the category Buyer-artist, each card records a single transaction.

Series VI. Correspondence, 1878-1971 633.2 Linear Feet (1626 boxes, 5 flat file folders)
Series VI. Correspondence, one of the largest series in the archive, consists primarily of the correspondence files maintained by the New York and the London offices of M. Knoedler & Co., but it also contains files from the firm's other offices in Paris and Chicago. The correspondence generally concerns possible sales or purchases of artworks, and occasionally features personal notes. Of particular interest is the interoffice correspondence between the New York, London, Paris, and Chicago offices, with notes or instructions directed to staff and information about sales, potential sales, clients, collectors, and collections. The archive contains interoffice correspondence files kept by each office. The correspondence of the firm's library in New York--kept separate from the firm's general correspondence--concerns requests for documentation and illustrations of artworks, inquiries about publications, and includes letters received from the firm's library in London.
Correspondence received or sent by the Knoedler firm may be part of the records of staff or associates of the Knoedler firm who subsequently worked at other institutions and may be in the holdings of these institutions. The Clark Art Institute has among its holdings records of William Collins, who worked for Knoedler before working at the Clark. The Paul Mellon Center in London holds correspondence files from the Knoedler Gallery, which were received among the records of Frank Simpson who worked at the Knoedler Gallery in London before working at the Paul Mellon Center.
Selected portions of Series VI. Correspondence have been digitized. To view online copies of letters preserved in letter copying books, connect to digitized letter copying books.
Arrangement
Series VI. Correspondence is organized into the following subseries: Series VI.A. General correspondence; Series VI.B. Interoffice correspondence; Series VI.C. Library correspondence; Series VI.D. Copies of letters sent; Series VI.E. London office correspondence; Series VI.F. Other offices; Series VI.G. Correspondence dossiers.
Series VI.A. General correspondence, 1879-1971 343 Linear Feet (806 boxes and 1 flatfile)
Subseries VI.A. General correspondence contains letters received by the New York office of M. Knoedler Co. from clients, artists, banks, associates and other dealers. The files also include selected copies of letters sent by Knoedler. The correspondence includes letters of inquiries about sales, negotiations of prices, appraisals, loans of artworks for exhibitions, and occasionally personal notes. Each year of correspondence typically includes topical files, such as appraisals, asking prices, changes of attributions, donations, and legal files.

For letters written by the painter Winslow Homer to M. Knoedler & Co., also see the twelve letters dating from 1900 to 1904 held by the Archives of American Art and digitized in 2014, and the letters from Homer to the firm that date from 1901-1902, 1904, 1908, and that are held at The Clark Art Institute.
Arrangement
The correspondence files were organized first by year and by alphabetical order for each year. Large files for certain associates, in particular the art dealer P. & D. Colnaghi, are divided in certain years by month of the year and between files of letters received and letters sent (i.e. "From Colnaghi January," "From Colnaghi February," ..., "To Colnaghi January," "To Colnaghi February," ...). In each alphabetical folder, such as Ab, Ac, the documents were roughly in the order received from January to December, rather than arranged by author. Topical folders, such as asking prices, are filed at the end of the alphabetical range. The correspondence files dating from 1921 to 1971 were generally kept in strict order, while the previous years were not and these have been filed according to the order found for later years.
Notations in pencil in the upper left corner of letters indicate the expected filing location. Typically, these notations simply identify the author of the letter, but in certain cases they suggest a topical filing or a cross-reference filing. Files for specific Knoedler staff or associates often appear under the name of the author of the letter. However, personal expenses of staff or traveling documentation of certain staff may be filed under the name of the staff member rather than the agency sending the letter.
Comments in the letters (i.e. "I am enclosing a photograph of the painting") suggest that these were often accompanied by photographs illustrating the artwork discussed. However, in most instances, the photographs are no longer with the letters, having been separated by Knoedler staff and filed under artworks in a different portion of the firm's records. These photographs are filed by artist and stock number in the portion of the archive now titled Series. VII. Photographs (Series VII.A. Artist files).

Series VI.B. Interoffice correspondence, 1911-1969 60.3 Linear Feet (130 boxes and 1 flatfile)
The interoffice correspondence consists of letters and cables received by the New York office from the other offices, primarily London and Paris, between 1911 and 1970. For the years 1929-1932, there are also correspondence files from an office in Chicago, and for the years 1935-1936 from one in Newport, R.I. The correspondence concerns sales, clients, artworks that are available for purchase, and general business concerns of the offices. There is usually for each year, a folder containing the lists of the works sold by each office or in storage at that location.
Arrangement
For each office, the interoffice correspondence was filed by year and month. Each year usually includes a folder containing the cables for that year and a folder containing lists of the works sold by the office or in storage at the office. There are also files for copies of letters sent by the New York office or files for copies received by each office from another one.
