About the Project
This project comprises letters written and received by prominent figures in 19th and 20th century American art. This selection features letters from George P. Healy, Eastman Johnson, George W. Maynard, Ambrose McEvoy, and James Henry Moser. The catalog record for this group of letters may help with names and context as you transcribe and review.
From his youth, Thomas Brumbaugh (1921-2011) collected autographed correspondence. Mr. Brumbaugh?s collecting instincts resulted in a unique collaborative collection. The letters in his collection provide a glimpse into the lives of a variety of 19th and 20th century American artists, including Abbott Thayer. Brumbaugh was a professor of fine arts at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, and author of many articles on American art and artists.
