Creating Access to the Knoedler Gallery Archive

The arrangement and description, and partial digitization, of an art gallery archive containing 1,400 linear feet of records documenting the acquisition and sale of European and American art in the United States between 1848 and 1971.

This application seeks support to accelerate processing and partial digitization of the recently acquired M. Knoedler & Co. Archive (1848-1971). The Knoedler Archive is one of the most important collections on the formation and history of the American art market, and development of private collections that later formed the central collections of the first American art museums, including the National Gallery of Art, the Frick Collection, the Huntington Library, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The proposed project will arrange, preserve, and describe the files of the twelve series, and digitize client correspondence, index cards, and 42 volumes of stock and sales books. Once processed, the Knoedler Archive will be freely accessible to scholars, researchers, curators, artists, and the interested public for new research, education, and programming. This 30-month project is scheduled to begin July 1, 2014 and end December 31, 2016.
