Subseries E. "Jacques Lipchitz and Philadelphia." June 27-Aug. 22, 2004.


Scope and Content Note

Jacques Lipchitz maintained a longstanding relationship with the city of Philadelphia during the latter decades of his life, and the Philadelphia Museum of Art now owns one of the largest collections of Lipchitz's work outside of Israel. In this exhibition, Michael Taylor explored Lipchitz's aritistic interactions with the city and his contributions to local culture through an exhibition of some fifty works drawn from the permanent collections and lent from local institutions and private collectors. The bulk of the files date from 2003 and 2004.


Files are arranged according to the curatorial department's original order and subdivided into four categories: curatorial administration, loans, research and support departments.
