Abstract:

The collection comprises a virtually complete archive of papers relating to Hoffman's life and career as a sculptor and writer. Correspondence traces Hoffman's relationships with friends, such as Auguste Rodin, Ivan Mestrovic, Anna Pavlova, Jean Julien Lemordant, Alexandre Iacovleff, and Marianne Moore, family members and clients, as well as the development of her commissions and publications. Manuscripts, edited drafts and published copies representing all of Hoffman's books, articles and lectures are accompanied by publicity and endorsements. A large portion of the collection consists of photo albums, scrapbooks and diaries documenting Hoffman's work, travels and personal life. 16 mm. films produced by Hoffman are present, with footage of other artists at work and dance rituals of the world.

Most significant are the photo albums, travel logs and anthropological notes used to produce Hoffman's noteworthy commission, the 104 sculptures of the "Races of Mankind" created for the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago (1929-1933). Drawings, sketchbooks and photographic studies provide an intimate perspective of the artist's process in creating the "Bacchanale" dance reliefs (1914), and monuments built for the Bush House, London (1924), the New York World's Fair (1939) and Epinal American Cemetery, France (1948-1950). These are supported by exhibition catalogs and clippings of reviews.
