Pevsner (Nikolaus) Papers

Scope and Content of Collection

The Nikolaus Pevsner papers contain his research files on art and architecture, manuscripts for many of his articles and books, correspondence with scholars, publishers and artists, lectures, and a collection of clippings and offprints of his articles. These papers date from 1906 to 1979, with the bulk dating from his years in England post-1933. (N. B.: Penguin Press Ltd has retained many of the files for The Buildings of England.) A small file of personal items includes family correspondence, photographs, manuscripts, awards and diaries. The books in Pevsner's library, many annotated, have been separated to the Getty Research Institute, Research Library.
