Historical Note


When the Painting and Sculpture Departments were allied, the Painting curators were Arthur Edwin Bye from 1922 to 1928, and Henry Clifford from 1929 to 1965, while the Sculpture curators were Horace H. F. Jayne and Francis H. Taylor from 1927-1930. Of special interest is Bye's bibliography and Clifford's participation with the American Committee for the Restoration of Italian Monuments.

Henry Gardiner was Assistant Curator in the Painting Department (under Henry Clifford) from 1960 to 1968. From 1968 to 1971 John L. Tancock was Associate Curator of Sculpture and there was no official Curator of Painting. In 1972 Anne d'Harnoncourt was named Associate Curator of Twentieth Century Painting and Joseph J. Rishel was Associate Curator of Painting before 1900. In 1973 the Department was split, with Anne d'Harnoncourt as Curator in the newly established Twentieth Century Art Department, and Joseph Rishel became the Curator of Painting in the new European Painting before 1900 Department. Peter Sutton came in 1979 as Assistant Curator, was named Associate Curator in 1982 and left in 1984 to join the Boston Museum of Fine Arts.


Scope and Content Note


The records consist of departmental and exhibition records. The former is comprised of general correspondence and subject files. Documentation of exhibitions primarily consists of lender files, artist and object research files, photographs, draft catalogue writings and files of other subject peritinent to planning an exhibition, such as budget, labels and installation, travel, publicity, promotion and special events.

Currently, this record group documents the curatorial office during its years of operation as the Painting and Sculpture Department, and as the Department of European Painting before 1900, the title it assumed in 1974 and under which it continues to operate.

Scope and Content Note

In 1966 the Philadelphia Museum of Art, in cooperation with the Art Institute of Chicago, organized a comprehensive retrospective of works by Eduoard Manet. Comprising over 200 paintings and watercolors, the exhibition was the largest display of Manet's work since a Paris exhibition organized in memorium a year after his death in 1883.

Date:
1965-1968

Scope and Content Note

Frederick Cummings and Allen Staley jointly organized an exhibition British romantic art for the Philadelphia Museum of Art and the Detroit Institute of Arts. The curators focused on the period between 1760 and 1860, beginning with works by Reynolds and Gainsborough and exploring the evolution of romantic art through the Pre-Raphaelites.

Exhibition records are organized into correspondence files for institutions and individuals, which account for the bulk of the records, and administrative files.

Date:
1972-1982

Scope and Content Note

Joseph J. Rishel and Kathryn Bloom Hiesinger co-curated this exhibition in cooperation with the Detroit Institute of Arts and the Galeries Nationales du Grand Palais in Paris, France. The Museum brought together a variety of works created in France during the Second Empire, including paintings, scultpure, architectural elements, and decorative arts for the largest exhibition that had yet been organized. Administrative files, catalogue materials, loan documentation, and artist and subject files are included in the subseries. Because the department of European Decorative Arts after 1700 also participated in planning the exhibition, related records may be found in that record group as well.

Subseries J. "Masters of Seventeenth-Century Dutch Genre Painting." Mar. 18-May 13, 1984

Date:
1978-1985

Scope and Content Note

In 1984, the Philadelphia Museum of Art collaborated with the Gemäldegalerie, Staatliche Museen Preussischer Kulturbesitz of West Berlin, Germany and the Royal Academy of Arts in London, England to organize and exhibit an exhibition of 118 Dutch genre paintings. Peter Sutton, Associate Curator of European Paintings before 1900, installed the exhibition in Philadelphia and wrote the award-winning catalogue that accompanied the show. The majority of the works featured in this exhibition were lent to the Museum, and a large portion of these records relate to lending institutions and works on loan. Correspondence, lectures, and materials relating to the exhibition catalogue constitute another prominent aspect of the exhibition records along with research relating to individual artists. Administrative files pertain to all aspects of exhibition planning and implementation from the originating curatorial department and various support departments.
