Finding Aid: M. Knoedler & CO. Records, approximately 1848-1971 (Web Resources)
Title: Finding Aid: M. Knoedler & CO. Records, approximately 1848-1971
Author: Getty Research Institute: NEH-Knoedler Archive Access Project
Abstract: This “Finding Aid” for the records of the M. Knoedler & Co. archive is now publically available online for research. As a result of this NEH: HCRR grant, the finding aid was enhanced with series level biographical, scope, and content notes. As stated in the published finding aid abstract, the records of M. Knoedler & Co. document the business of one of the most important American art dealers over more than a century (1848-1971), and trace the development of the once provincial American art market into one of the world's leading art centers. The archive includes stock books, sales books and commission books; extensive correspondence with artists, collectors and other art dealers; photographs of the artworks sold by the gallery; business records from affiliate offices in Paris and London; department records; and research files, catalogs and ephemera. Currently the stock books, sales books, commission books, inventory cards, shipment records, and general correspondence are available for research. The remainder of the archive is still being processed—each series will be made available for use as processing is completed.
