Abstract:

Four letters to the collector Paul B. Haviland, concerning the founding of the Modern Gallery in New York, 1915. The letters furnish information about the purpose for establishing the Gallery; the functions played by collectors such as Haviland, Eugene Meyer (as director and financier for the Gallery) and his wife, Agnes Meyer as consultant; the connections between this branch gallery with Stieglitz's "291" gallery; and the plans for exhibitions. Included are three additional items: a typescript announcement of the opening of the Modern Gallery in October, 1915 which was to appear in the paper for "291" no. 9; a handwritten copy of a letter from Zayas to Stieglitz addressing the relationship between the two galleries; and a handwritten copy of Stieglitz' reply with his thoughts on "291."
