6.4: Audiovisual Records , circa 1950-1963

This subseries contains a sound recording and motion picture film. The sound recording is a 33-1/3 rpm LP record album of a speech inscribed "To Edith Halpert, who knows the Answer--Maxim Karolik." A note on the jacket indicates the speech was transcribed, but a transcript was not found with the gallery records.
Motion picture film material includes a television series produced by Westinghouse Broadcasting Corporation in association with Jensen Productions, America: The Artist's Eye (1963), found on one film reel (16 mm). Episodes in the series are on American Primitives, Albert Ryder, Charles Willson Peale, John James Audubon, Winslow Homer, Paintings in the White House, George Catlin, John Marin, George Bellows, Edward Forbes, John Trumbull, and Currier and Ives. Four copies of the episode from this series on Charles Sheeler are found on 3 film reels (one reel consists of two copies spliced together), and one film reel of additional Sheeler material is found. The Sheeler episode includes discussion of Sheeler's barn paintings, how handmade items influenced him, and the appeal of machines and locomotives. Excerpts (circa 1950) show views of Sheeler, his wife, and other people and animals in various work and leisure activities.
Reference copies of the sound recording and most of the film footage have been created for research access.
