Biography

Malvina Hoffman was born in Manhattan on June 15 1885 to Richard Hoffman, a well-known pianist and music teacher, and Fidelia Lamson Hoffman.
In 1998 she studied at the Brearley School, attending evening art classes at the Woman's School of Applied Designs, and the Art Students League of New York. Between 1904-1096, she studied painting and drawing with Harper Pennington and John White Alexander and sculpture with Herbert Adams, George Gray Bernard and Gutzon Borglum.
In 1909-1910 she produced her first portrait of her father and traveled to Paris to study with Rodin. She also worked as a studio assistant to sculptress Janet Scudder while living in Paris. Her first dance sculpture, "Russian Dancers" (1911), is inspired by Anna Pavlova's performance of "Bacchanale" in London. In the spring of 1911, portraits of Richard Hoffman and William Astor Chandler are accepted to the Paris Salon. Hoffman next studied anatomy at the Cornell University College of Physicians, and began the models for "Bacchanale," a frieze of 25 panels that took her ten years to complete. Her "Russian Dancers" was exhibited at the National Academy of Design in this period.
Hoffman returned to Paris in 1912 to work with Rodin. Two more dance figures, "Bacchanale Russe" and "L'Après-midi d'un faune" (inspired by a performance of Vaslav Nijinsky) were completed this year.
In 1914-1915 Hoffman had her first solo exhibition, held at the East 34th St. studio in Manhattan. While in London for an exhibition at Leicester Galleries, she supervised the installation of Rodin's works at Grosvenor House. She also assisted in the cataloging of Rodin's drawings for the Musée Rodin at the Hôtel Biron, Paris. During this period, Hoffman collaborated in the organization of Appuix Aux Artistes to support models and artists unemployed as a result of the onset of World War I.
She returned to New York in the Fall and established a permanent residence and studio at Sniffen Court in Murray Hill, Manhattan. Produces numerous photographs and drawings of Pavlova with Andreas Pavley posing for "Bacchanale." Exhibitions of her dance groups and lithographs were held at the Brooks Reed Gallery in Boston and the Panama-Pacific International Exhibition in San Francisco.
In 1919 she was in a group show at the Whitney Studio Club, and returned to Paris to assist in the installation of Rodin's work in the Musèe Rodin. Her "Bacchanale Russe" was placed in the Luxembourg Gardens this year, and she undertook a seven week tour of Yugoslavia in August of 1919, as a representative of the American Relief Commission.
In 1920-1921 she completed "Offrande" (based on Paul Verlaine poem), "La Péri" and "The Sacrifice," a memorial to American Ambassador Robert Bacon for Harvard Memorial Chapel. She resumed work on "Bacchanale" with Pavlova and Novikoff, and had her first one-woman exhibition at Ferargil Galleries in May, 1921.
In 1924 she completed "Bacchanale," and married her childhood friend Samuel Grimson. Also in 1924, American businessman Irving Bush commissioned Hoffman's most significant architectural sculpture for the Bush House in London, commemorating Anglo-American friendship.
In 1925 Hoffman traveled to Zagreb to study equestrian sculpture with Ivan Mestrovic, and filmed him at work on his "American Indian Groups" for Chicago's Grant Park. She moved to Villa Asti in Paris with Grimson and had a major exhibition at the Grand Central Art Galleries in December, 1928.
In 1929 Stanley Field commissioned Hoffman to create sculptures of "The Races of Mankind" for the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago. She traveled for eight months photographing, drawing and taking anthropological data of models for ethnographic "portraits." She produced 104 sculptures, first exhibited in 1932 at the Musée d'Ethnographie at the Palais du Trocadero before permanent installation at the Field Museum. Hoffman became a celebrity with the opening of the Hall of Man on June 6, 1933,
She divorced Grimson in 1936 and returned to Sniffen Court. Her ethnographic sculptures were exhibited in several venues including the Dance International Exposition (1937). Her "International Dance Fountain" was installed at the New York World's Fair, 1939. In 1939 she published Sculpture Inside and Out (1939), an instructional guide to sculpture. In 1943 she published an account of her travels for the Hall of Man commission, Heads and Tales.
Between 1948-1950, Hoffman worked on a World War II memorial for Epinal Memorial Cemetery in France. In 1955 she produced relief panels for the Joslin Hospital, Boston. In 1965 she published her autobiography, Yesterday is Tomorrow. Malvina Hoffman died July 19, 1966 at Sniffen Court, Manhattan.

Processing History

An inventory of the collection was taken in 1986 by Tim Netsch, and again in 1990 by Miriam Gaber. The 16mm films were reviewed by Mary Fenton and Jennifer Young, who compiled a summary of the contents of some of the films. In 1992, Beth Guynn processed the correspondence, manuscripts and portions of the glass plates. The scrapbooks, glass plates and several large portfolios were processed by Teresa Morales in 1996. Julie Rosenberg completed the processing and cataloguing of the collection in June 1997. The finding aid was revised in 2004.

Scope and Content of Collection

This comprehensive archive relates to Hoffman's life and her career as a sculptor and a writer.
Correspondence traces Hoffman's relationships with friends, family members, and clients as well as the development of her commissions and publications. Manuscripts, edited drafts, and published copies representing all of Hoffman's books, articles and lectures are accompanied by publicity and endorsements. A large portion of the collection consists of photo albums, scrapbooks and diaries documenting Hoffman's work, travels and personal life.
Films produced by Hoffman, and others, are present, with footage of other artists at work and dance rituals of the world. Especially significant are the photo albums, travel logs and anthropological notes used to produce Hoffman's best known commission, the 104 sculptures of the "Races of Mankind" created for the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago (1929-1933).
Drawings, sketchbooks and photographic studies provide an intimate perspective of the artist's creative process, particularly the "Bacchanale" dance reliefs (1914), and monuments built for the Bush House (1924), the New York World's Fair (1939), and Epinal Memorial Cemetery (1948-1960). These are supported by exhibition catalogs and clippings of reviews. A small collection of photographs, catalogs and correspondence also reveal Hoffman's friendships with artists Auguste Rodin, Ivan Mestrovic, Anna Pavlova, Jean Jacques Lemordant and Alexandre Iacovleff.
The collection includes photographs, motion picture films, videotapes, a sound recording, microfilm, copper plates, glass and acetate negatives, as well as drawings, letters, manuscripts and printed materials.

Series X. Motion picture films and negatives, ca. 1910-1966

Physical Description: 19.0 box(es)

Scope and Content Note

This series holds 16mm films - original nitrate films, and positive and negative archival and copy masters made by the repository for most, but not all of the originals. The films depict events from Hoffman's trip around the world for the Field Museum commission, including documentation of dancers and dancing; of Hoffman and friends; and of artists at work. The use copies on VHS videocassetes are part of Series VI. Descriptions are taken from several sources: labels on the original film cans and boxes, a 1939 inventory in the collection presumably made by Malvina Hoffman (Box 36, f.3), and from an inventory made by Getty Research Library staff who viewed most of the films.
Of the 55 nitrate film titles (consisting of 60 separate films on 58 reels: some films exist in several elements: negatives and positives, film plus titles), 19 appear to have not yet been reformatted and are not available for viewing.
Also in this series are damaged acetate negatives (most from Series V.), 1,587 nitrate negatives (quarantined), and 5 microfilm reels of the nitrate negatives. An inventory to the nitrate negatives is in the repository's Research file.
