Abstract:

The papers contain correspondence, business and financial records, printed ephemera, and photographs. The two primary foci, 20th century artists and the art collection formed by Bernard and Rebecca Reis, are brought out through a substantial body of letters from major and minor figures of the American art world, written and visual documentation of the Reis collection of art and books, and ephemeral material relating to artists and patrons.

Series I, Correspondence and papers, contains ca. 720 letters, Christmas cards, and postcards to Bernard and Rebecca Reis from over 100 art world figures, including artists, museum officials, and critics, many of whom were also clients of Bernard Reis's accounting firm. Typically, these letters discuss the purchase of art works, loans of works from the Reis's collection, social engagements, and travels, and include requests for financial advice. There are numerous items from William Congdon, who discusses his travels and philosophy of painting (1954-1984); Helen Frankenthaler, who writes from summer vacations on Cape Cod and includes inscriptions from Robert Motherwell (1950-1970); and George Grosz, who requests financial advice and discusses his assignments for Esquire magazine (1935-1958). Marc and Vava Chagall and their daughter Ida discuss planning for exhibitions and travels; one group of letters deals with Chagall's royalties and unauthorized reproductions of his work (1956-1985). Material concerning Jacques Lipchitz includes letters from Jacques, Berthe, and Yulla Lipchitz and papers detailing loans and sales of Lipchitz's work (1931-1964). Letters from Peggy Guggenheim discuss purchases and sales of art works, the 1971 robbery at her palazzo in Venice, and legal and tax issues relating to the Peggy Guggenheim Foundation (1950-1977); there is also an office file with material relating to the Foundation and Guggenheim's will (1968-1981).

Among the correspondence are painted, illustrated, and collage cards by Elise Asher, Abe Birnbaum, William Congdon, Julio De Diego, Helen Frankenthaler, George Grosz, Larry Rivers, Hans Richter, Lucy and Attilio Salemme, and Ernst and Karin Van Leyden. The papers also include materials relating to the Reis's art collection (inventories, estimates, and requests for loans or purchases); legal and financial documents (many facsimile copies) relating to the Rothko estate, as well as to Reis's bankruptcy and Rebecca Reis's lawsuit; and a few personal items such as Rebecca Reis's diary (1945).

The bulk of Series II, Printed ephemera (press clippings and exhibit catalogs and invitations), concerns Jacques Lipchitz. Other ephemera relates to Marc Chagall, Marcel Duchamp, George Grosz, Peggy Guggenheim, and Mark Rothko. Series III, Photographs, contains 65 photographs of Marc Chagall and family, 8 of Peggy Guggenheim, and 14 of Jacques Lipchitz and family. One photo album contains 81 photographs of sculptures by Jacques Lipchitz, paintings and drawings by George Grosz (2 signed), and art works in the Reis's collection.
