Series 3: Artwork Files , circa 1970-2003
5.8 Linear Feet
Box 3-9

Artwork files date from circa 1970-2003 and are comprised of three sets of index cards that Eiseman used to collate his research on each individual work of art by Demuth. The third set is by far the most complete (beginning in Box 4, Folder 4 and ending in Box 9, Folder 7), and includes hundreds of index cards organized by artwork date, containing the size, medium, signature location, collection, exhibitions, reproductions, and provenance of each work. Most cards are also accompanied by a reproduction of the artwork. While Eiseman's index cards serve as the foundation of this series, subsequent researchers, including the Fine Arts Museum of San Francisco and later Ulrich Hiesinger, added additional information to the files, including photocopies and internet research. These later additions to Eiseman's card index account for the dates of files after Eiseman's death in 1991. A small number of index cards are also included with the Fine Arts Museum of San Francisco's artwork research files (see Box 10, Folders 9-12).
