1.7: Photographs , 1912-1913

This series consists of photographs related to the Armory Show, including installation views, art works, the Duchamp-Villon brothers, and the celebratory beefsteak dinner held on March 8, 1913, taken by Percy Rainford. Photographs include individual prints and one photo album. The photo album consists of platinum prints of works of art that were made into postcards, and an original photograph of the Duchamp-Villon brothers.
A handful of loose platinum prints of art works and of the Duchamp-Villon brothers match the prints in the photo album in image, tone, and print quality, and have been treated as originals. Copy photographs of images whose originals are not in this collection are filed in Series 1.9: Retrospective Materials. Additional photographs are found in Series 3 and 4.
