Container List

George E. Stone photographs of architecture, fine arts and decorative arts
Photographic work, 1929-1931, 1991-1992
Photographic prints, 1991-1992
In 1991-1992, the Getty Research Institute created a set of 5 x 7 inch contact prints from Stone's negatives. Some negatives also have 8 x 10 inch enlargements and some have multiple contact prints of varying tonalities or quality. The prints are labeled with transcriptions of Stone's notes taken from the nitrate negative sleeves. These notes include Stone's negative number and an identification of the image, as well as the date in many cases. The photographic prints are primarily from the negatives made on Stone's 1930-1931 European trip, but a small number derive from Stone's negatives of modern American sculpture made in 1929, and his copies of Edizioni Brogi photographs.
