Abstract:

Biographical data, business cards, correspondence, photographs, lecture notes, news clippings, and miscellany pertaining to the work of Scottish-born American sculptor and Minneapolis School of Art instructor Charles S. Wells. The papers reflect on the career and work of the Minneapolis sculptor and document his relationship with other sculptors, most notably Augustus Saint-Gaudens and Karl Bitter, his lectures on art history at the Minneapolis School of Art, and his sculptural works.

The correspondence includes letters from sculptors George Julian Zolnay, Henry Merwin Shrady, Lee Lawrie, and Fred P. Humphrey (1909-1953); from Karl Bitter and Bitter's estate concerning Wells' supervision of work on the Thomas Lowry Memorial in Minneapolis (1912-1915); from Charles H. Mayo and others regarding Wells' commissioned works and teaching appointments; from former students concerning Wells' departure from the Minneapolis School of Art (1929-1930); and from former student Bill Muir (1947-1955).

The photographs include informal portraits of Wells and illustrations of his sculptural work. Depicted are Augustus Saint-Gaudens and his assistants, including Wells, before a plaster cast of Saint-Gaudens' statue of General Sherman, Karl Bitter in his studio, a sculpture class of the New York Art Students League, Wells' ornamental and fountain details for Gateway Park in Minneapolis, Wells' scale model of St. Mark's Cathedral in Minneapolis, and additional works by Wells including gatepost sculptures for the Charles S. Pillsbury residence and a garden fountain for the George B. Clifford residence.
