1.4 Linear feet
Boxes 2-6

There are two photograph albums in this series: one mostly containing artwork from various museums in Europe, and the second album containing photographs taken during Beckwith's travels in Egypt as well as Greece, Italy and Holland. The travel photograph album also includes photographs of artist's models and artists Leon Bonnat, William-Adolphe Bougereau, Frank Holl, and others in their studios.
There are many board-backed photographs of Beckwith's paintings, mostly portraits of men and women. A few photographs of exhibition installations, such as a 1914 Beckwith exhibition at the Buffalo Fine Arts Academy, and photographs of artwork by other artists from various museums in Europe are also included.
The photograph albums are at the beginning of the series, followed by a few exhibition installation photographs, artwork by Beckwith, and finally artwork by other artists and miscellaneous photographs.
The bulk of this series has been digitized, except for duplicates and blank versos of photographs.
