Subseries F. "Sir Edwin Landseer." Oct. 25, 1981-Jan. 3, 1982


Scope and Content Note

Joseph Rishel, curator of European Art, and Richard Ormond, deputy director of the National Portrait Gallery in London, organized a major exhibition of the works of Sir Edwin Landseer that sought to reveal the artists as a major figure in the romantic movment. The show relied upon generous loans from public and private collections throughout the United Kingdom, Europe, and North America; thus, the bulk of the exhibition records are comprised of lender files. Following its debut in Philadelphia, the exhibition also traveled to the Tate Gallery in London. Administrative files pertain to exhibition planning and execution among curatorial and support departments at the Philadelphia Museum of Art with a few folder dedicated to the later exhibition at the Tate Gallery. Correspondence and exhibition catalogue materials are also included in this subseries.


Sub-subseries are maintainted accordingly to the original order in which they were transferred to the Archives.
