During and after World War II, an unlikely Allied team of American and British art curators, scholars, architects, librarians, and archivists were charged with identifying and protecting European cultural sites, monuments, and buildings from bombing. This exhibition, curated by archivist Rihoko Ueno, showcases selected materials from the papers of Thomas Carr Howe, James J. Rorimer, and George Leslie Stout.
The Archives holdings document the development of the Armory Show and its critical reception. Many were created by key organizers Arthur B. Davies, Walt Kuhn, and Walter Pach, who conceived, organized, and executed the exhibition. Together the letters, sales records, printed ephemera, and personal diaries paint a picture of the Armory Show that is as dynamic as the stunning diversity of works on display.
