1894, 1903, 1915-1986
Creator:
Whitney Museum of American Art, cre
Goodrich, Lloyd, 1897-, cre
Goodrich, Edith Havens, cre
Extent: 42 linear feet
The Lloyd and Edith Havens Goodrich, Whitney Museum of American Art, Record of Works by Thomas Eakins consists mainly of typescript and manuscript papers, correspondence, and a variety of research and reference materials pertaining to Lloyd Goodrich's major published and unpublished works on American artist Thomas Eakins. This collection documents more than 50 years of Eakins scholarship, during which Goodrich published "Thomas Eakins: his life and work" (1933) and the revised and augmented monograph, "Thomas Eakins" (1982). A revision of the 1933 publication's catalogue raisonne section, intended as a separate volume, never reached the final stages before Goodrich's death, but represents a significant volume of material. Of note is correspondence with Thomas Eakins's widow, Susan Macdowell Eakins; Goodrich's transcriptions of Thomas Eakins's own correspondence, much of which is now lost; and his interview notes with Eakins's sitters, students, friends, and relatives, including Charles Bregler, Charence W. Cranmer, Frances Eakins Crowell, Mary Elizabeth Hallock Greenewalt, Elizabeth Macdowell Kenton, Frank B. A. Linton, Samuel Murray, Mary Adeline Williams, Lucy Landon Williams Wilson, and Francis Joseph Ziegler. (View full finding aid.)
