Series 3: Writings , 1917-circa 1970
(Boxes 2-3; 1.5 linear ft.; Reels 5895-5897)

Lozowick published many articles, book and exhibition reviews, and a book, Modern Russian Art. Two major works -- a book on William Gropper and a memoir titled Survivor From a Dead Age -- were published posthumously. In addition, there is evidence of a few unpublished books about art (probably unfinished). Russian art and art and artists in the Soviet Union are the focus of many articles.
This series includes manuscripts, drafts, and notes for a wide range of writings. They are arranged by record type: articles, books, notes, and miscellaneous writings. Among the manuscripts identified as "articles" are several pieces that could be chapters for planned books or texts of classroom lectures, i.e., articles titled with names of art schools, periods, or movements, such as "Cubism," "Futurism," and "Renaissance," or places like "Greece," and "The Orient".
Seven notebooks and loose notes relate mainly to his published and unpublished writings. Also among his notes are names, addresses and phone numbers, reminders and lists; notes on specific topics include lithography, Soviet and Russian art and artists, India and Japan. Series 6: Printed Material, includes some research materials for Lozowick's writings.
This series is arranged into 2 subseries:
  • 3.1: By Lozowick
  • 3.2: By Other Authors
3.1: By Lozowick, 1917-circa 1970
