Finding aid for the Yves Poupard-Lieussou correspondence and collected papers on Dada and Surrealism, 1905-1984 (bulk, 1956-1979)
Series III. Raoul Hausmann letters, drawings and manuscripts, 1915-1971 ca. 500 items
The third series includes 338 letters written in French by Raoul Hausmann (1886-1971) to Poupard between 1955 and 1970. Many of the letters contain illustrated sketches. Materials also comprise Hausmann's letters to Losfeld, Hugnet, and Henri Chopin, carbon copies of his articles, French translations of Hausmann's Dada publications from the 1920's, and a small collection of books, drawings, photographs and exhibition catalogues. Some of these items date as early as 1915. Hausmann's correspondence was largely solicited by Poupard while he was preparing a biography on Hausmann and a monograph on the history of the Berlin Dada movement. Indeed, much of this material re-appears in Hausmann's and Poupard's book Courrier Dada (Paris, 1958). Hausmann furnishes biographical information and criticisms, using this opportunity to discuss his personal contribution to avant-garde artistic techniques. His writing style is personal, highly resentful of his Dada colleagues, and tends toward exaggeration.
