Abstract:

The Ian Hamilton Finlay archive assembled by Simon Cutts, provides a record, through letters, manuscripts and printed pieces, of the work of the Scottish concrete poet, garden designer and controversialist.

The collection primarily contains printed works by Finlay: mail art cards, pamphlets, posters and broadsides, and small books, most printed at his Wild Hawthorn Press, 1958-1989, and correspondence, 1948-1993, with friends, collectors, and fellow artists such as Derrick Stanford (1948-1952), Simon Cutts (1968-77), Ronnie Duncan (1978-1986), Graeme Murray (1972-1988), Karl Torok (1972-1977). Manuscripts, maquettes, dummies and models for projects, 1963-1989, with photographs and transparencies of early and abandoned works and works in progress, 1965-1989, document the creation of a range of his projects, mostly printed works. Reviews and press clippings of Finlay's "polemical affairs, wars and battles," along with printed works he created while fighting his battles, illustrate the dispute over the publication by the Fulcrum Press of his "The Dancers Inherit the Party," his dispute with the local authorities over the designation of his "garden temple" as an art gallery, and the controversy accompanying Finlay's commission, subsequently revoked, to design a bicentennial garden at Versailles, 1969-1989. Also included in the archive are catalogues and invitations for exhibitions, contributions by Finlay to magazines, books and exhibition catalogues, and critical writings by others on Finlay.
