Series 2: Artists' Files, 1893-1995
(Boxes 1-5, MGP 5; 3.2 linear feet)

This series contains materials relating to many of the various artists represented in the Pearlmans' collection. These materials generally include correspondence with museums, galleries, and other experts regarding the purchase, exhibition, reproduction or authenticity of a piece; artwork loan forms; research documentation; magazine articles and newspaper clippings relating to the artists or exhibits of their works; exhibition catalogs; and photographs, negatives, and slides of artwork. To maintain original order, enclosed loan forms, newsletters, and photographs have been filed with their correspondence.
Some of the artists significantly represented in this series include Cezanne, Modigliani, Degas, Soutine, and Van Gogh. The Kokoschka files include personal correspondence from the artist and his wife to the Pearlmans; the Kokoschka and Lipchitz files contain photographs of the artists with some of their work. The Various section encompasses materials relating to no particular artist or to an artist not represented fully enough for a subseries.
The bulk of this series has been scanned. Photographic reproductions of artwork have not been scanned and only the cover, title page, and individual relevant pages have been scanned from published materials. Glass plate negatives are housed separately and closed to researchers.
