Scope and Content Note

Joseph Rishel organized a traveling exhibition of the Philadelphia Museum of Art's Charlotte Dorrance Wright Collection that was exhibited at the Society of the Four Arts in Palm Beach, Florida in the spring of 1989 and the State Museum of Pennsylvania in Harrisburg during the fall of that year. While this collection traveled, the Museum hosted an exhibition of some Impressionist paintings from the John T. Dorrance collection. Sotheby's organized the exhibition to attract potential buyers in the weeks preceding an auction that included 43 works from the Dorrance collection. Materials from both exhibitions are collocated in this subseries and include correspondence, checklists and contracts along with records from support departments regarding conservation, loans, and marketing.
