Series. I.C. London, 1894-1977

Physical Description: 36.0 linear feet (30 boxes)

Scope and Content Note

The acquisitions by the London branch of M. Knoedler & Co. are documented in several sets of stock books. These sets contain overlapping information and appear to have been used and maintained by the different offices of the firm. Before January 1928, artworks that had been assigned a stock number upon entering the stock of the London office, were assigned a different stock number when entering the stock of the New York office. Both offices developed separate numbering sequences. Beginning in January 1928 and with the stock number A1, there appears to have been an attempt to unify the numbering sequence of both offices. Later, another numbering system consisted of the letters L or F preceding the number to indicate inventory from the London and Paris offices, respectively. Are also included in this subseries stock books that were maintained by the London office, but which record transactions by the New York office.
Selected stock books in Series I.C. have been digitized and made available online. Connect to digitized stock books.

Before April 1892, commissions were recorded unnumbered. In April 30, 1892, a new numbering system was adopted with the commissions inventoried by the letter C preceding the numbers. Beginning in January 1928, commissions were inventoried with the letters CA preceding the numbers. For consignments from artists the letter S precedes the number.
Selected commission books in Series III have been digitized and made available online. Connect to digitized stock books.  

Arrangement note

Arranged in three groupings: commission books no. 1-no. 6; transactions with artists; other ledgers.

Series VI. Correspondence, approximately 1879-1971

Physical Description: 633.2 linear feet (1626 boxes, 3 flatfiles)

Scope and Content Note

Series VI. Correspondence, one of the largest series in the archive, consists primarily of the correspondence files maintained by the New York and the London offices of M. Knoedler & Co., but it also contains files from the firm's other offices in Paris and Chicago. The correspondence generally concerns possible sales or purchases of artworks, and occasionally features personal notes. Of particular interest is the interoffice correspondence between the New York, London, Paris, and Chicago offices, with notes or instructions directed to staff and information about sales, potential sales, clients, collectors, and collections. The archive contains interoffice correspondence files kept by each office. The correspondence of the firm's library in New York--kept separate from the firm's general correspondence--concerns requests for documentation and illustrations of artworks, inquiries about publications, and includes letters received from the firm's library in London.

Arrangement note

Series VI. Correspondence is organized into the following subseries: Series VI.A. General correspondence; Series VI.B. Interoffice correspondence; Series VI.C. Library correspondence; Series VI.D. Copies of letters sent; Series VI.E. London office correspondence; Series VI.F. Other offices; Series VI.G. Correspondence dossiers.

Scope and Content Note

Subseries VI.A. General correspondence contains letters received by the New York office of M. Knoedler Co. from clients, artists, banks, associates and other dealers. The files also include selected copies of letters sent by Knoedler. The correspondence includes letters of inquiries about sales, negotiations of prices, appraisals, loans of artworks for exhibitions, and occasionally personal notes. Each year of correspondence typically includes topical files, such as appraisals, asking prices, changes of attributions, donations, and legal files.

For letters written by the painter Winslow Homer to M. Knoedler & Co., also see the twelve letters dating from 1900 to 1904 held by the Archives of American Art and digitized in 2014 , and the letters from Homer to the firm that date from 1901-1902, 1904, 1908, and that are held at The Clark Art Institute.

Arrangement note

The correspondence files were organized first by year and by alphabetical order for each year. Large files for certain associates, in particular the art dealer P. & D. Colnaghi, are divided in certain years by month of the year and between files of letters received and letters sent (i.e. "From Colnaghi January," "From Colnaghi February," ..., "To Colnaghi January," "To Colnaghi February," ...). In each alphabetical folder, such as Ab, Ac, the documents were roughly in the order received from January to December, rather than arranged by author. Topical folders, such as asking prices, are filed at the end of the alphabetical range. The correspondence files dating from 1921 to 1971 were generally kept in strict order, while the previous years were in disarray and have been filed according to the order found for later years.
Notations in pencil in the upper left corner of letters indicate the expected filing location. Typically, these notations simply identify the author of the letter, but in certain cases they suggest a topical filing or a cross-reference filing. Files for specific Knoedler staff or associates often appear under the name of the author of the letter. However, personal expenses of staff or traveling documentation of certain staff may be filed under the name of the staff member rather than the agency sending the letter.
Comments in the letters (i.e. "I am enclosing a photograph of the painting") suggest that these were often accompanied by photographs illustrating the artwork discussed. However, in most instances, the photographs are no longer with the letters, having been separated by Knoedler staff and filed under artworks in a different portion of the firm's records.

Series VI.B. Interoffice correspondence, 1911-1970

Physical Description: 60.3 linear feet (130 boxes and 1 flatfile)

Scope and Content Note

The interoffice correspondence consists of letters and cables received by the New York office from the other offices, primarily London and Paris, between 1911 and 1970. For the years 1929-1932, there are also correspondence files from an office in Chicago, and for the years 1935-1936 from one in Newport, R.I. The correspondence concerns sales, clients, artworks that are available for purchase, and general business concerns of the offices. There is usually for each year, a folder containing the lists of the works sold by each office or in storage at that location.

Arrangement note

For each office, the interoffice correspondence was filed by year and month. Each year usually includes a folder containing the cables for that year and a folder containing lists of the works sold by the office or in storage at the office. There are also files for copies of letters sent by the New York office or files for copies received by each office from another one.

Knoedler & Co.'s librarian, Helmut Ripperger, and clients, art dealers, and museums between 1945 and 1971, and interoffice correspondence between the library of the New York office and those at the London and Paris offices between 1913 and 1971.

Arrangement note

Arranged in two subseries: Series VI.C.1. General correspondence; Series VI.C.2. Interoffice correspondence.
 

Series VI.C.1. General correspondence, 1945-1971

Physical Description: 7.9 linear feet (19 boxes)

Scope and Content Note

The subseries consists mainly of the correspondence of Helmut Ripperger, M. Knoedler & Co.'s librarian, between 1945 and 1971. The correspondence details requests for catalogues by Helmut Ripperger and clients, requests for reference information about and photographs of artworks, offers and gifts of books, book/journal sales and purchases, and general administration.
The subseries includes correspondence to and from institutions such as Brooklyn Museum, University of California (Berkeley), Boston Museum of Fine Arts, Szépmuvészeti Múzeum (Budapest), Fogg Art Museum, Frick Art Reference Library, Guggenheim Museum, Harvard University (Cambridge), Chicago Arts Club, Chicago Art Institute, Cincinnati Art Museum, Cleveland Museum of Art, Columbia University, Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek (Copenhagen), Copenhagen Royal Museum, Galerie Gerald Cramer, John Herron (Indianapolis), Currier Gallery (Manchester), Moroquain Inc., Hans Naef, Hispanic Society of America, Smith College (Northampton), National Gallery (Ottawa), Smith College, Wasmuth Antiquarian, Whitney Museum of American Art, and Yale University.
There are gaps in the correspondence for the files between 1945 and 1950.

Arrangement note

The filing is first by alphabetical order and then by year for each alphabetical letter. For institutions, the filing is geographic by city, rather than alphabetically by names. In Series VI.A. General correspondence, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York was filed under M, while it is filed under N for New York in the Library correspondence. Names of persons are filed by last name as is the case in Series VI.A.

Physical Description: 77.1 linear feet (343 boxes)

Scope and Content Note

Series VI.D. Copies of letters sent includes letter copying books and loose carbon copies of letters sent by the New York office of M. Knoedler & Co. to clients, associates and other offices of the firm. The copies of these letters are numbered and can be located using indexes that record the last name of the correspondent to whom the letter was addressed. These indexes also facilitate the consultation of the letters received by the firm in Series VI.A. General correspondence. Selected copies may also be found filed with the letters received (Series VI.A).

Arrangement note

Arranged in two subseries: Series VI.D.1. Letter copying books; Series VI.D.2. Carbon copies.
 

Series VI.D.1.  Letter copying books, 1890-1940

Physical Description: 19.2 linear feet (205 volumes)

Scope and Content Note

Two hundred and five letter copying books document the letters sent by the New York office of M. Knoedler & Co. from 1890 to 1931. Although some books date from after 1931, the firm primarily switched to the use of loose carbon copies in 1931. Manufactured by H. C. Davison of New York, a firm with branches in Yokohama and Los Angeles, the copying books are bound volumes of thin, translucent tissue leaves, which Davison advertised as "Imperial fibre" or imported Japanese paper. The books are said to contain 500 leaves, but there may be inconsistencies in the numbering that was done by hand with a stamp. Knoedler staff listed the names of addressees with the corresponding number for the letter in the index located at the front of each book.
Due to their fragility, access to the letter books is restricted. The Getty Research Institute plans on digitizing the entire subseries Series VI.D.1. (205 volumes).

Arrangement note

The books are arranged according to the following categories devised by the Knoedler firm: Domestic letters; Foreign letters; London; Paris; Chicago; Private letters; Telegrams and cables.

Series VI.D.2.  Carbon copies, 1931-1958

Physical Description: 57.9 linear feet (139 boxes)

Scope and Content Note

The subseries consists of carbon copies of letters and cables sent to clients and associates by the New York office of M. Knoedler & Co. between 1931 and 1958. There are gaps in the documentation for the following years: 1934-1941, 1949-1955, and 1957-1958.
The filing of these copies is useful as each letter is numbered and indexed, with the indices listing the recipients of the letters, such as names, institutions and companies. The index numbers may be stamped in the lower right corner of each letter or for the majority of them, handwritten. Most of the letters are single-page and single-sided, but the presence of double-sided letters and letters that have multiple pages leads to some discrepancies between index numbers and the index volume.

Arrangement note

With the exception of the copies for the year 1958, which are not numbered or indexed, the letters are arranged by index number in descending order. Each indexed section has a corresponding index volume.
There are some discrepancies in the index numbers. Where there are letters with more than one page, sometimes the first page is the only one numbered and sometimes each sheet is numbered with the same number. There are instances where, when a letter has more than one page, each page has a different index number. There are also a few occurrences of two letters having the same number, with one of the letters not matching the index.
There are instances where the numbers, the primary filing principle, is not consistent with the chronological order of the letters. The majority of the letters falls within the chronological range of the indexed section, but there are exceptions. There are also cases of sections with overlapping dates, for example, there is an indexed section for May-July 1945, and another one for June 1945, each with its own index volume.
