Scope and Content Note

In compiling images depicting Hovenden's career, life and influences, Terhune put together an album of copy prints, inserting explanatory notes to almost every image. In addition to Hovenden's works of art and that of other artists, there are also scenic photos of Brittany and Pont-Aven, the artist's home in Plymouth Meeting, costumed models, and photos of his daughter Martha in her studio and of her own sculptural works. Terhune also took her own photographs, for which there are contact prints and negatives. There are also a few folders of photographs Terhune acquired from other sources, including "extras" she decided not to use in her book. A meticulous notekeeper, Terhune recorded subjects, dates, and locations of images she photographed as well as those she saw elsewhere. Those notes are included here as are approximately 400 slides. Most of those images are identified on the slide itself, and there are also some index cards included in her photo notes as well as a list of slides of Hovenden paintings.
