Series 7: Subject Files , 1942-2010
2.3 Linear feet
Boxes 3-5, 11

Subject files reflect some of Bultman's activities, interests, and relationships. Individual files in this series may contain a wide variety of record types or consist simply of correspondence with or about an individual or institution.
The most thoroughly documented subject is Hans Hofmann. Printed materials include articles about Hofmann, a brochure of the Hans Hofmann School of Fine Arts, exhibition notices and catalogs. Among the writings by Hofmann are: an article, "Plastic Creation;" his essay, "Form and Color in the Creative Process: The Painter's Primer" (edited by Cynthia Goodman, translated by Georgina Huck); and a book, The Search for the Real (edited by Sarah T. Weeks and Bartlett H. Hayes, Jr.); as well as lectures and talks.
Joseph Cornell documentation includes letters referring to Napoleonic Parakeet, a Cornell box owned by the Bultmans; also found are postcards and further correspondence. Printed material, mostly about exhibitions, includes a notice about Cornell's memorial service.
"Forum '49" and "Forum '49 Revisited" includes photographs of the 1949 installation and the participating artists --Fritz Bultman, Peter Busa, Kenneth Campbell, Minna Citron, Morris Davidson, Lillian Drake, Perle Fine, William Freed, Howard Gibbs, Kahlil Gibran, Adolph Gottlieb, John Grillo, Weldon Kees, Karl Knaths, Lawrence and Mrs. Kupferman, Blanche Lazzell, Boris Margo, George McNeil, F. Pfeiffer, and Judith Rothschild.
Found in the Weldon Kees file are requests for information about Kees, Bultman's notes about their friendship, along with a few letters from Kees and manuscripts of articles about him. The file concerning the Provincetown History Preservation Project contains many original letters of Fritz and Jeanne Bultman, a few photographs, and other items that Mrs. Bultman thought might be of interest to the project. Documentation of friendships with Tony Smith and Donald Windham includes a substantial number of letters. The Windham file also includes writings and there is a book cover Bultman designed for him.
Subject files are alphabetized by title.
