Series 4: International , 1895-1940
30.2 Linear feet
Boxes 204-234, 265-266

International is comprised of catalogs, correspondence, art and artist lists, itineraries, jury selection ballots, minutes, notes, and reports related to the planning, logistics, and promotion of the Carnegie International Exhibition from 1895 to 1940. The various changes to the jury selection process, invitation lists, and logistical shipping and handling of artwork is documented in the various form letters and official announcements under both directors' tenure. Under Saint-Gaudens, over time the logistical planning for each exhibition became more formalized, with more time and attention being paid to budgets and the creation of artist invitation lists, loan requests, reception planning, and Fine Arts Committee reports. These documents were originally grouped and filed separately under John Beatty and were more rigorously streamlined under Homer Saint-Gaudens. The handful of folder headings continued under Saint-Gaudens focus on art purchases, artists' invitations, artists' request for information, general exhibition planning, Foreign Advisory Committees, foreign governments, jury reception planning, loan requests, and touring logistics. Additional information regarding artists, critical reception of the exhibition, prizes, press coverage, and preview shows are also filed here.
From 1907 to 1940, these files were originally boxed in two year periods, and within that, arranged numerically according to the star (*) filing number assigned by the Museum of Art. Records dating from 1895-1906 were boxed separately. All records have been rearranged into an alphabetical folder heading order with all the years merged and organized into chronological order. This series has been scanned in its entirety.
