Series 2: Notes and Research Files, 1880s-1978, bulk 1930s-1960s
(Boxes 15-16, 78; 1.2 linear feet)

Notes and research files include research compiled by Doll & Richards on artists and paintings in which the gallery exhibited or were interested in. Materials are varied and include clippings; compiled biographies; exhibition announcements and catalogs, many with notations; notecards on reported sales of paintings with references to works by Homer and Sargent; miscellaneous notes; price lists; scattered photographs; and a book about Winslow Homer with marginalia by Wendell Zoehler regarding exhibitions and sales.
Also found are two sets of card files: Arthur McKean's card file for Winslow Homer paintings, and Wendell Zoehler's card file for William Stanley Haseltine paintings. The original order of each card file has been retained. The Winslow Homer card file is separated into oils and watercolors/drawings, and then arranged alphabetically by the title of the artwork. Each of the approximately 700 cards contains information such as when it was received and from whom, sale price and net (in code), date of sale, identification number related to the records of works ledger books (found in Series 6, Inventory), sales and work order form number (found in Subseries 5.2, Financial Records, Sales), when and where it was exhibited, a description of the painting, and a bibliography. An explanation of the sale price code is filed with the cards. The William Stanley Haseltine card file is arranged alphabetically by institution or buyer name and includes such information as purchaser, size, price, and sales and work order form number.
Additional scattered research materials about artwork are also found in the Series 8, Photographs.
Folders are arranged alphabetically by subject.
