titleHow, When and Why Modern Art Came to New York, 1996
repositoryWhitney Museum of American Art
collection titleThis collection, assembled by Francis M. Naumann, includes correspondence and other material relating to Marius de Zayas and his role in bringing modern art to the United States from Europe.

This material was used by Naumann in preparation for How, When, and Why Modern Art Came to New York by Marius de Zayas, edited by Naumann, and published in 1996 by The MIT Press. Included in the first series is correspondence between de Zayas and various associates and friends.

There is a lengthy exchange of correspondence between de Zayas and Alfred Stieglitz, as well as correspondence with others involved in the avant-garde art world, including Walter Arensberg, Alfred H. Barr, Jr., Benjamin De Casseres, Paul Haviland, Max Jacob, Walt Kuhn, Francis Picabia, Pablo Picasso, Charles Sheeler, Tristan Tzsara, Forbes Watson and Adolf Wolf.

Also included is correspondence and other material relating to de Zayas’s business dealings with other art dealers, financial backers, and collectors, including Walter Arensberg, Paul Guillaume, Lucien Lefebvre-Foinet, Agnes Ernst and Eugene Meyer, John Quinn, Paul Rosenberg, Ambroise Vollard, and Charles Vignier.

The second series consists of correspondence and related material arranged by subject matter, and includes material relating to de Zayas’s work as both artist and writer, as well as to the Modern and Photo-Secession galleries, and other subjects.

The final series consists of photocopies of pages from de Zayas’s scrapbook of press clippings.

Biographical and Historical Note
Francis M. Naumann, an art historian and curator, collected this material in preparation for How, When and Why Modern Art Came to New York, by Marius de Zayas (Cambridge: MIT Press, 1996), which he edited. Naumann specializes in Dada and Surrealism in Europe and the United States, and runs a gallery, Francis M. Naumann Fine Art, in New York City.

Marius de Zayas (1880-1961), an artist and gallery operator, was born in Veracruz, Mexico, the son of Rafael de Zayas, a noted historian, orator and lawyer. He gained a reputation as a caricaturist, exhibiting his work in Alfred Stieglitz’s "291" gallery in 1909; two years later he wrote to Stieglitz from Paris advising him on trends in modern art. With Paul Haviland, he wrote A Study of the Modern Evolution of Plastic Expression, published in 1913, an early study of modern art.

By 1914, he had met Apollinaire and Gertrude Stein in Paris, and had organized exhibitions at 291 of African Negro art, as well as of work by Francis Picabia, Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque. With Picabia and others in 1915, he brought out the publication 291, an avant-garde magazine, and opened the Modern Gallery, which operated first as a branch of 291, and then on its own.

After the Modern Gallery closed in 1921, de Zayas organized shows for the Whitney Studio Club and the Wildenstein Gallery, and worked for a time for the Parisian art dealer Paul Rosenberg. Marius de Zayas died in 1961 in Greenwich, Connecticut.

titleDorothy Norman Research Collection, 1897-1992, n.d.
repositoryPhiladelphia Museum of Art
collection titleDuring her twenty-year relationship with photographer and art promoter Alfred Stieglitz, Dorothy Norman, herself a photographer as well as writer, came to know artists such as John Marin, who were defining American modernism during the 1930s and 1940s. Norman published and edited writings about both men, and likely compiled this material in preparation. Documentation pertaining to Alfred Stieglitz consists primarily of exhibition announcements and checklists, and copies of writings published by his gallery An American Place. Equally significant in amount are the copyprints of photographs by Stieglitz, and of works by artists he promoted, such as Georgia O'Keefe, Arthur G. Dove, John Marin and Marsden Hartley. John Marin material consists primarily of photographs and published writings about the artist, including clippings and exhibition catalogues. Material relating to Norman's other endeavors include ephemera of her publication "Twice a Year" and other works published by the same company. There are also installation photographs from the exhibition of her collection held at the Philadelphia Museum of Art in 1968.

titleEvan H. Turner Records, 1964-1978
repositoryPhiladelphia Museum of Art
collection titleEvan H. Turner (born 1927), an art historian and scholar, was the Director of the Philadelphia Museum of Art (PMA) from 1964 to 1978, leading the Museum through a period of significant growth and transformation. He created new art departments for American and 20th Century Art, and the innovative Department of Urban Outreach (DUO) to promote art across the City of Philadelphia. These progressive activities were matched by a groundbreaking exhibition in 1973, the Marcel Duchamp retrospective, which drew upon significant scholarship and assembled virtually the entire oeuvre of one of the most important artists represented in the Museum. In 1975, Turner led the Museum in a major construction project to install a new climate control system in the building, and in 1976, he helped plan the United States’ Bicentennial and the PMA’s Centennial celebrations. Turner was an active member of a number of professional organizations, as well as a professor at the University of Pennsylvania. The Evan H. Turner records document Turner’s tenure as Director of the Philadelphia Museum of Art (PMA) from 1934 to 1978 (bulk: 1964-1978). A mix of correspondence, inter-office memoranda, reports, minutes and other records provide ample evidence of Turner’s leading position in the Museum’s growth and transformation during that time, as well as exhibition and event planning, and the daily operations of the Museum. The collection also documents Turner’s work with professional organizations, his efforts to help the City plan the 1976 Bicentennial celebrations, and his professorship at the University of Pennsylvania.
