Abstract:

Papers focusing on the life of Enid Yandell, born in Louisville, who became one of the first woman sculptors to achieve widespread recognition. Family correspondence, 1878-1930, traces Yandell's life work as an art student at the Cincinnati Art Academy, as a pupil of Philip Martiny and Lorado Taft in Chicago, Karl Bitter in New York, and Frederick MacMonnies and Auguste Rodin in Paris, France, and finally as an accomplished sculptor in New York City and Edgartown, Mass. Letters from family members, especially her mother, Louise Elliston Yandell, provide insight into the personal and social lives of a prominent Louisville family, and reveal the family's financial struggles as a widowed mother attempts to provide the best opportunities for her children, especially Enid. Professional correspondence, 1887-1929, concerns Yandell's professional career, various commissioned works, acquaintances and friendships formed with a number of prominent persons, and her social service, especially with orphaned children during World War I. Correspondents include sculptors Auguste Rodin, and Gutzon Borglum, artist Thomas Alexander Harrison, architect Daniel Hudson Burnham, and actress Julia Marlowe; and letters of recommendation from sculptors Philip Martiny and Karl Bitter. Other papers include legal documents concerning the Yandell family estate and leases on property owned by Enid Yandell; personal papers such as receipts, prescriptions, poetry and music, and miscellaneous family items; printed material concerning Yandell's career and her social service during World War I; various typed material including lectures and speeches; newspaper clippings regarding Yandell and her work, particularly the Daniel Boone statue commissioned by members of the Filson Club and the Yandell family, and the lives and works of other sculptors and artists, social and political events of the day, and biographical and genealogical information on Enid and the Yandell family, respectively. Also included are rough sketches and watercolor paintings done by Yandell; instructional art books and reference material used; scrapbooks compiled by Yandell containing newspaper clippings, articles, etc., about her life, career, and work, in addition to those of other artists and sculptors; exhibition catalogs; price lists; collected art journals, some containing articles written by and about Yandell; information on the Tennessee Centennial Exposition in 1897 and public sculpture in Providence, R.I.; and German and French architectural, ornamental, and free standing sculpture design data.
