Sub-subseries 6. To be processed


Scope and Content Note

These items were incorporated into this record group in January 2007 and consist primarily of photographs and photographic postcards of Rodin's sculptures as well as portraits of the artist and other contemporaries. There are also several shots of both the Paris and Philadelphia museums devoted to Rodin. The images were produced in Paris and the United States, and in this sub-subseries are grouped by subject represented, namely "people," "objects," and both museums. These categories are further divided by photographer or printer, where identified. The Parisian photographer Choumoff produced most of the images of the artist and his colleagues, as well as the artist just days before his death and posthumously lying in state. Certain object photographs have information about the piece handwritten on the verso. One of note is the photograph of the portrait sculpture of Omer DeWavrin. The inscription, in French, is by his wife, and she notes that the work is given to the Rodin Museum in Philadelphia.
