1.6: Writings of Walt Kuhn, 1912-1913

This series contains translations written by Walt Kuhn during his voyage home from Europe in November, 1912. Works include excerpts from Paul Gauguin's "Noa-Noa," which was later published in pamphlet form for sale at the Armory Show, and excerpts from "Letters of a Post Impressionist" by Vincent van Gogh, which was not published. Also included are copyright clearances for both works obtained from the Library of Congress Copyright Office.
Manuscripts and typescripts are filed together in this subseries. The published pamphlet of the Gauguin translation can be found in Printed Material and Memorabilia (Series 1.5). Additional writings by Walt Kuhn can be found in the Walt Kuhn Family Papers (Series 4).
