Abstract:

The George A. Lucas Papers contain the correspondence, art collection-related papers, and subject files of George A. Lucas, as well as several of his friends and colleagues. They document Lucas' work as an art agent in late 19th and early 20th century Paris and his collections of artwork, spanning the years 1862 to 1909. They also contain research materials relating to the Lucas Papers that were not part of Lucas' original collection.

Series 1, Subject Files, contains correspondence, clippings, photographs, exhibition catalogues and a few prints relating to artists, dealers, friends and others in the Paris art scene of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Most of the correspondence is between Lucas and artists about either purchasing their artworks or commissions for his American friends.

Series 2, Personal Papers, contains a few financial papers, Lucas' listings of works of art in his collection, the rather varied contents of one of Lucas' folders, and material relating to Theodore Child's book, A Mirror of Fair Women: Studies in Beauty and Elegance, published by Harper & Brothers in 1892 in an edition of 1000.

Series 3, Lucas Research Collection, contains materials found with the Lucas Papers that either were created by BMA staff members or outside researchers working with the Lucas Papers or that were obviously added to the collection after Lucas' death.
