Abstract:

Scrapbook created by collector George Mayr documenting history and sales of works of Jacob van Ruisdael, containing correspondence, clippings, excerpts from art historical publications, and photographs of paintings.

The correspondence concerns Mayr's ownership of a landscape painting attributed to Ruisdael. Of particular interest are records of his loan of the work for the opening exhibition of the Museum of the Brooklyn Institute of Arts and Sciences (now The Brooklyn Museum) in 1897, including letters, brochures, invitations, and reviews. Mayr also offered to loan the painting to The Metropolitan Museum of Art for its 50th anniversary exhibition in 1920.

Other correspondence documents Mayr's efforts to sell the painting, comments re authentications of the work, and investigations of other paintings offered for sale.

Clippings, photographs, and excerpts from art historical publications document the history of Ruisdael and of exhibitions of his paintings. In addition, the scrapbook contains extensive material concerning sales of works of Ruisdael and of other Old Master paintings, including clippings, promotional material, and some correspondence.
