Abstract:

These records consist primarily of the administrative correspondence and the curatorial files of the Curator of Textiles, Adele Coulin Weibel and Francis Robinson. However, Adele Weibel's personal correspondence, research, and lecture materials are included. The administrative files consist of material from 1927-1978, the later being the administrative files of Francis Waring Robinson, Curator of Medieval Art in Charge of Textiles. Adele Weibel's Administrative files reflect her work in establishing the Detroit Institute of Arts textile collection. They include correspondence with important dealers, patrons, and curators concerning the collection and her textile research. Clippings, textile gallery notes, and inventories, primarily in the areas of Peruvian and Coptic Art, are also included. Exhibition files consist of correspondence, clippings, and research on textiles. Examples of textiles from the textile study collection are included. The personal files of Adele Weibel consist of correspondence and research from 1870-1963. Of major significance is the art historical and textile art research done while she was a student and assistant to Joseph Strygowski and lecturer and teacher of art history. The research is primarily lecture notes, bibliographic indexes, and a large collection of photographs. The manuscript material, research notes, and correspondence for her book, Two Thousand Years of Textiles: The Figured Textiles of Europe and the Near East, and the unfinished manuscript, "History of Embroidery," have also been included. There is an emphasis on research in Islamic, Coptic, and Peruvian art. The correspondence and clippings of Liselotte Moser include additional correspondence covering her mother, Adele Weibel, and material on Moser as an artist. Along with the administrative correspondence of Francis Waring Robinson, a small collection of postcards with some personal correspondence have been included for research, since they illustrate examples of textiles. The departments of European Painting and European Sculpture and Decorative Arts have related material on Adele Weibel and the textile collection. Also, the Conservation Services Laboratory has similar records to the textile collection.
