Abstract:

The Alan and Janet Wurtzburger Papers contain the correspondence and art collection related papers of Baltimore collectors Alan and Janet Wurtzburger. Contains almost exclusively material related to the Wurtzburgers acquisition and loan of works from their collection of modern sculpture. After collecting and donating their collections of African, Pre-Columbian and Oceanic art to the Baltimore Museum of Art, the Wurtzburgers began working with Director Adelyn Breeskin and Curator Gertrude Rosenthal to build a collection of contemporary sculpture suitable for a garden that would also eventually go to the museum. The material in the Wurtzburger Papers relates mostly to the details of purchase of sculptures, their shipping to the U.S., and exhibition in various museums.
