Abstract:

Collection includes autographs of American and a few European artists, painters, and architects. Among the more important are Victor Audubon, Albert Bierstadt, Frederic E. Church, Thomas Cole, John Singleton Copley, Robert Fielding, Horatio Greenough, Henry Inman, John F. Kensett, John Lewis Krimmel, John La Farge, John Notman, members of the Peale family, Joshua Shaw, Thomas Sully, and Benjamin West.

While most of the items in the collection are of trifling consequence, some are important for the study of the people they represent. For example, several manuscripts relate to a Benjamin West painting named "Christ Healing the Sick in the Temple," and about one dozen letters written by Frederic Church detail his trip to South America in 1853.
