1.11: Rolf Hans Waegen Correspondence, 1923, 1927-1945

This subseries contains correspondence files of Rolf Hans Waegen, sales associate of the firm and personal friend of Germain Seligman. The correspondence is primarily with European and U.S. clients concerning possible sales and purchases, potential clients, and the availability of artwork for sale either in the United States or abroad. Letters regarding personal matters and social events are also found. Later files concern Waegen's death and the settlement of his estate.
The files are arranged into foreign correspondence, domestic correspondence, and personal correspondence. The personal correspondence, however, also contains correspondence with potential clients and collectors. Portions of correspondence are written in French and German. Additional correspondence of Waegen is scattered throughout General Correspondence (Series 1.3) and Museum Correspondence (Series 1.4).
This series has been scanned in entirety.
