Series 6: Fine Arts Museum of San Francisco Catalogue Raisonné Research Material , circa 1970-2005
1.5 Linear Feet
Box 10-12

The Fine Arts Museum of San Francisco catalogue raisonné research material dates from circa 1970-2005, but predominantly contains materials dating after Alvord Eiseman's death in 1991, at which time his research material was given to the Fine Arts Museum of San Francisco by Eiseman's friend Grete Meilman. The catalogue raisonné research continued until 2001, although the project was never completed. Meilman then handed the project over to historian Ulrich Hiesinger in 2003, but the raisonné was still never published. Material in this series dating from before it was given to the Fine Arts Museum of San Francisco is mostly the photographic prints originally accumulated by Eiseman. The bulk of material here is artwork research files and authenticating correspondence. Artwork research files expand on Eiseman's research found in Series 3: Artwork Files, but do not reflect Demuth's complete oeuvre. In a few instances, Eiseman's original index cards were included with this newer research. Also found here are a few inventory lists, example catalogue raisonné formats, and largely unsorted photographic material and reproductions.
