Abstract:

This collection primarily contains correspondence between Eunice Chambers and various scholars, museum directors, libraries, and art collectors between 1930-1967. Most letters pertain to the numerous early American portraits that Chambers collected and resold. She often approached private owners of particular paintings and wrote to them, asking if they would be willing to sell their items. Chambers also actively solicited purchasers for her paintings. Often, she would go to great lengths to thoroughly research the provenance of the works and the history of the subjects of these paintings. Through the help of various libraries and scholars, she was able to attribute several unidentified paintings.
