Abstract:
Art to Anne d'Harnoncourt (1943-2008) was both a professional and personal passion. Best recognized for her twenty-five year tenure as director of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, d'Harnoncourt collaborated with local, national and international people and organizations, to keep art--and all the arts--relevant and essential in building and bridging communities. Most of the material comprising the Anne d'Harnoncourt Papers traces her professional development in and away from the Museum and consists primarily of correspondence, press clippings, photographs of works of art and events, draft lectures, notes, ephemera and a number of certificates, citations and object awards. Several files of photos and papers pertain to her husband and Museum colleague, Joseph J. Rishel. Family papers and photographs and school records comprise her personal papers. Also made part of the Anne d'Harnoncourt Papers is the significant documentation of the worldwide reaction to her unexpected death on June 1, 2008. Materials consist of condolence messages to the Museum and to Rishel, obituaries and other writings, posthumous honors, as well as working papers and ephemera pertaining to the various memorial services and later tributes. An audio recording of one of the 2008 services and a video recording of a long-time friend's recollections recorded in 2009 are also included.

Biography/History

On more than one occasion when talking about art and its museums, Anne d'Harnoncourt (1943-2008) would quote the work of the contemporary artistic duo Gilbert and George. "To be with art is all we ask." To her, the phrase resonated wonderfully with the mission of art museums, and in particular with the work of their curators. As a museum professional of 40 years, Anne d'Harnoncourt considered it her privilege and responsibility to devote herself to art and artists and in doing so, encourage others to discover their own ways of being with art.

EARLY YEARS AND LASTING IMPRESSIONS

Born September 7, 1943, in Washington, D.C., Anne Julie d'Harnoncourt was the only child of René and Sarah Carr d'Harnoncourt. Her father, of Austrian, French and Czech lineage, was born into minor nobility and educated in Graz and Vienna, studying chemistry. Upon his family's financial losses in 1924, d'Harnoncourt moved a year later to Mexico seeking work as a chemist. Finding no such work, he eventually took a job in Mexico City with Frederick W. Davis, a native of Illinois, who dealt in Mexican folk art. Around that time, d'Harnoncourt also met the American Ambassador to Mexico, Dwight Morrow, and his wife Elizabeth. D'Harnoncourt's career in the arts took off from there. During the 1930s, he curated exhibitions in Mexico and the United States, taught art history at Sarah Lawrence College in Bronxville, New York, and managed the Indian Arts and Crafts Board in Washington, D.C. By the time of his daughter's birth, d'Harnoncourt had distinguished himself as a scholar and veritable ambassador of Latin American and Native American arts and culture. Before his daughter's first birthday, the senior d'Harnoncourt had joined the staff of the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York, where he served as Vice President of Foreign Activities and Director of the Department of Manual Industries. In 1949 he became MoMA's director and served as such until 1968. (The visual arts are not the only arts mastered by the d'Harnoncourt family. Internationally recognized is Anne's cousin Nikolaus Harnoncourt, a frequent guest conductor of the Vienna and Berlin Philharmonic Orchestras, and one of the first musicians to perform Baroque and Classical-era music on period instruments. Another relative of musical note is the mezzo soprano Elizabeth von Magnus-Harnoncourt, known professionally as Elizabeth von Magnus.)

Born in Chicago in 1903, Anne's mother, Sarah Carr, grew up in Wisconsin, returning to the Windy City for private school studies, and then on to Wellesley College, where she earned a B.A. in 1925. For several years, she worked at Chicago's famed department store, Marshall Field and Company, as an editor for the store's magazine, "Fashions of the Hour." It was during this tenure in 1932 that she met her future husband, who having come to Chicago with an exhibition of Mexican art, was at the store signing copies of a children's book he had illustrated. (Elizabeth Morrow, the ambassador's wife who befriended d'Harnoncourt in Mexico several years earlier, was its author.) According to a notice in the New York Times that ran at the time of Sarah's death at the age of 97 in 2001, it was love at first sight. The couple married in May of 1933 and settled in Washington, D.C. where René d'Harnoncourt worked for the United States government's American Indian Arts Crafts Board. With his 1943 appointment to MoMA, d'Harnoncourt relocated his family to New York City. Recalling her parents' relationship, Anne stressed the tacit support her mother gave to her father during his tenure as director of MoMA, as well as the editing skills Sarah applied to some of her husband's more complicated correspondence and talks. Sarah also remained close to MoMA's staff and trustees long after her husband's tragic death in 1968. While walking one August morning on a country road near their summer cottage in Long Island, René d'Harnoncourt was struck and killed by a drunk driver. He had only retired from MoMA three months earlier. He was 67 years old.

In an interview conducted between 2003 and 2004, d'Harnoncourt noted that her earliest memories of the visual arts were the times she spent looking through the many books her parents kept in their apartment on Central Park West in New York City. With her father as director of what is considered one of the most influential museum of modern art in the world, d'Harnoncourt not surprisingly also recalled spending "a fair amount of time" at MoMA. It was there that she encountered the first image to which she was irresistibly attracted and which she claimed remained in her mind forever--Henri Matisse's 1913 oil on canvas, "The Blue Window." Picasso's expansive and explosive "Guernica" of 1937, which was temporarily housed at MoMA between the outbreak of World War II and 1981, as well as Matisse's "The Piano Lesson" (1916) also affected the young viewer.

More significant to d'Harnoncourt's professional development were the lasting impressions of her father at work--his delight in installation design, his interactions with museum staff and artists and his convictions of what a museum should be. The senior d'Harnoncourt's belief in "museums unlocking the potential of art to communicate with people, and people to communicate with the works of art" was not lost on the daughter. Nor was his profound belief in "internationalism and the relationships that museums and the arts could forge between countries, civilizations, and people." In regard to the latter observation, d'Harnoncourt, in a 2006 interview, gave a specific example that she readily admitted to being a great influence upon her. While still at work for the Department of the Interior, René d'Harnoncourt organized the American Indian art exhibition displayed at the 1939 Golden Gate International Exposition, better known as the San Francisco World's Fair. What resonated with d'Harnoncourt was how masterfully her father presented objects to an audience not accustomed to seeing such works, making visitors mindful of the beauty and visual power of such objects, as well as their cultural context. As suggested by one account, Sarah d'Harnoncourt also had a hand in the exhibition's success. Writing to Anne in 1996, John Forbes, who was curator of the fair's European Painting display, recalled, "your parent's [sic] Indian Show was the most exciting and most imaginative exhibition in the whole fair." Although the exhibition was staged four years before Anne d'Harnoncourt's birth, its impact as a real watershed in the acceptance of indigenous art into a world art canon endured long after the fair closed. Another exhibition of her father's that d'Harnoncourt cited as influential was one she saw for herself--MoMA's 1967 retrospective of the sculpture of Pablo Picasso. Soon after the exhibition opened, critical tribute went not only to the works of art, many of which were never before on public display, but to René d'Harnoncourt's installation as well. The impact of the show remained with d'Harnoncourt, specifically her father's strong belief that an installation should bring forth rather than overpower the art or the character and personality of the artist. The art of installation would remain Anne d'Harnoncourt's love. But that would only come well after her adolescent years.

Growing up in New York City, d'Harnoncourt attended the Brearley School, a 12-year preparatory school, from 1949 to 1961. In the summer of 1959, a few months shy of her 16th birthday, she traveled with several other American high school students to Africa to participate in a four-week International Affairs seminar sponsored by the Pomfret School (Pomfret, CT). The program took the young travelers to Kenya, Northern Rhodesia (now Zambia), and Ghana. In addition to illustrating an article published in the school bulletin about her African experience, d'Harnoncourt served as art editor to the student magazine during her upperclassman years. Like her father, d'Harnoncourt had a penchant for drawing, but in her own style. While the elder often used caricature to illustrate a point, his daughter had a flare for more fanciful, dreamlike figures and animals. Decorating her writings, particularly her notes, with such images remained a lifelong habit of d'Harnoncourt's.

At this point in her life, however, art was an idle pastime, as d'Harnoncourt chose History and Literature as her major when she entered Radcliffe College in 1961. D'Harnoncourt concentrated on German and English literature and history, writing her thesis on the comparative aspects of the 19th century poetry of Johann Christian Friedrich Hölderlin and Percy Bysshe Shelley. In the summer of 1962, she had the extraordinary opportunity to return to Africa, in what is now Tanzania, as a member of the volunteer group Project Tanganyika. Sponsored by Harvard University, the program aimed to teach reading and writing to the local population, 80 percent of whom were illiterate. As she learned to read and write in German for her class studies, d'Harnoncourt learned Swahili in preparation of this trip. During her years at Radcliffe, d'Harnoncourt received scholastic recognition. In 1961, she was named an honorary Ann Radcliffe Scholar; in 1964 she was elected to Phi Beta Kappa; and in 1965 she graduated magna cum laude and was awarded the Captain Jonathan Fay Prize. During those same years, d'Harnoncourt, as she recalled nearly 40 years later, rarely visited Boston's Museum of Fine Arts or Harvard's Fogg Museum. Only in her senior year did she take a few courses in the history of architecture and audit a class in Chinese painting. Only then did she realize her "acute deprivation of the visual experiences."

Wanting now to immerse herself in the study of art and art history, d'Harnoncourt pursued her graduate studies at the Courtauld Institute of Art, University of London. Her first year of study in 1965 focused on European art since 1830. Her second year of specialized research was devoted to the art of Italy, France and Germany between 1900 and 1915. For her thesis, d'Harnoncourt examined the moral subject matter in mid-19th century British painting, with special attention to the Pre-Raphaelite artists. As part of her thesis project, she spent six months at the Tate Gallery, London, preparing catalogue entries to 30 Pre-Raphaelite paintings and drawings in the Tate's collection. During her two years of study, d'Harnoncourt became close friends with future art historian and curator Susan Compton. Once, trying to help her American friend relax during exams, Compton invited d'Harnoncourt to her home, asking her to draw on the walls of her young daughter's bedroom. According to Compton's 2008 memorial recollection, by the time d'Harnoncourt laid down her colored felt tip pens weeks later, cartoon cats in all sorts of antics and café scenes covered the walls. Art triumphed over anxiety, and d'Harnoncourt received her M.A. in 1967, graduating with distinction.

A CAREER ON THE RISE AND A GROWING COMMITMENT TO A CITY

D'Harnoncourt returned to the United States that same year eager to find work in a museum. Although her father never pushed her to pursue a museum career, he did telephone several colleagues about his daughter's interest in an entry-level position. While these calls led to interviews in Boston, Cleveland, and Chicago, none of those museums had jobs to offer. Instead, an opportunity came from an art museum whose director her father did not know very well. According to a 1976 newspaper account, d'Harnoncourt met Allen Staley, an assistant curator at the Philadelphia Museum of Art (PMA), while she was working at the Tate and he was there researching Romantic Art in Britain. Impressed by her "industry and knowledge," Staley encouraged d'Harnoncourt to apply for a job at PMA. Apparently heeding his advice, d'Harnoncourt was invited later in 1967 by the Museum's director Evan H. Turner to join the staff as a curatorial assistant in the Painting and Sculpture Department.

In the two years d'Harnoncourt held that position, some of the most remarkable events took place that would set in motion her eventual international reputation as a "leading authority on and interpreter of modern and contemporary art and the preeminent specialist in the art of Marcel Duchamp." Wanting to learn more about Walter and Louise Arensberg, whose significant collection of modern art and pre-Columbian sculpture came to PMA in 1950, d'Harnoncourt, not yet 25 years old, went to New York to interview the 81-year-old avant-garde artist Marcel Duchamp. Duchamp advised the Arensbergs on acquisitions for their collection, which would come to include the largest number of his works of art. He was also instrumental in selecting Philadelphia as the permanent home for their collection. D'Harnoncourt conducted her interview on March 25, 1968, spending several hours with the artist. That October Duchamp died in Paris. At the time of their meeting, d'Harnoncourt, along with every other art scholar in the world, was unaware that Duchamp, long thought to have quit making art, had in fact been assembling a life-size three dimensional construction over the last 20 years of his life. (According to Michael Taylor's 2009 exhibition catalogue, the only ones who saw the assemblage prior to the artist's death were his wife "Teeny," his friend and fellow artist William Nelson Copley, Maria Martins--Duchamp's one-time lover and model for the figure incorporated in the piece, and two important figures associated with PMA--Museum President Bernice McIlhenny Wintersteen and PMA Vice President and former painting curator Henry Clifford.) Following Duchamp's death, the Cassandra Foundation, as stipulated by the artist, presented to the Philadelphia Museum of Art the mixed-media piece "Étant donnés: 1° la chute d'eau, 2° le gaz d'éclairage . . . " Again, d'Harnoncourt found herself in a unique opportunity. Not only was she one of only a handful of people to take part in the permanent installation, she was also the Museum representative who worked closely with Paul Matisse, Duchamp's stepson, on the difficult task of dismantling the work from the artist's New York studio. During the installation, d'Harnoncourt began what would be a life-long friendship with Duchamp's widow, Alexina "Teeny" Duchamp, who in turn introduced the young curator to other leading figures of contemporary art and culture; namely the artist, composer and poet John Cage, painter and printmaker Jasper Johns and English painter and collage artist Richard Hamilton. Over her career, d'Harnoncourt also became close friends with and advisor to Mme. Duchamp's daughter Jacqueline Matisse Monnier, an artist in her own right.

To complement the July 1969 unveiling of "Étant donnés" to the public, the Museum devoted the entire issue of its Bulletin (a double issue of April-June and July-September 1969) to the work. Walter Hopps, respected museum director and curator of contemporary art, was invited to write the essay. He requested d'Harnoncourt be his co-author. She considered their collaboration to be her "real plunging into the art world" as her conversations with Hopps covered not only Duchamp but all modern and contemporary art. D'Harnoncourt was also responsible for encouraging Mme. Duchamp to loan her private art collection to the Museum during the summer and fall of 1969. The temporary exhibition included paintings, works on paper and sculpture by modern masters such as Constantin Brancusi, Joseph Cornell, Henri Matisse, Joan Miró, Yves Tanguy and Jacques Villon, as well as five additional works by Duchamp. D'Harnoncourt also used this opportunity to reorganize the Museum's modern galleries, grouping works by theme or artist rather than by collector. As Michael Taylor, who curated PMA's 2009 "Étant donnés," noted in that exhibition catalogue, d'Harnoncourt's temporary exhibition and gallery makeover would "underline the importance of these figures for subsequent generations of artists."

Coming on the heels of such accomplishments was "Constantin Brancusi, 1876-1957: A Retrospective Exhibition." Organized by the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York, the exhibition came first to Philadelphia, opening in September 1969. D'Harnoncourt and Associate Curator John Tancock curated the show, which was heralded as the most comprehensive exhibition ever held of Brancusi's work, consisting of more than 70 pieces of sculpture, along with drawings, watercolors and architectural elements. In January 1970, after a two-month run at the Guggenheim, the Brancusi exhibition headed for the Art Institute of Chicago (AIC). Just a few months earlier, so did Anne d'Harnoncourt.

Joining AIC in September 1969 as an assistant curator of 20th-century art, d'Harnoncourt worked with A. James Speyer, whom she considered, outside of her father, to have most directly influenced her. According to d'Harnoncourt, Speyer, an architect by training, had a "unique sense of the installation of an exhibition as a spatial whole as well as a visual sequence of ideas and images." Like her parents' chance meeting, d'Harnoncourt also met her lifetime partner in Chicago. At that time, Joseph J. Rishel was an assistant curator of European painting at AIC. The couple married in New York on June 19, 1971. By the end of that year, d'Harnoncourt returned to the Philadelphia Museum of Art as Associate Curator of 20th-century Painting--a position created specifically for her. She became a full curator in 1972. Rishel joined the Museum slightly earlier in 1971 as Associate Curator of Painting before 1900. Overseeing the department since its inception in 1973, Rishel is now the Museum's Gisela and Dennis Alter Senior Curator of European Painting before 1900, and the Senior Curator of the John G. Johnson Collection and the Rodin Museum.

Back in Philadelphia, d'Harnoncourt once again made Duchamp a priority, putting into action an exhibition she began planning while at the Art Institute of Chicago. With 292 works on display, "Marcel Duchamp" was an important retrospective jointly organized by d'Harnoncourt and Kynaston McShine, curator at the Museum of Modern Art in New York (MoMA). After a three-month showing at PMA in 1973, the exhibition traveled to MoMA and AIC, where it closed in April 1974. For the PMA show, d'Harnoncourt had the opportunity to feature two of Duchamp's most important works of art--"Étant donnés" and "The Bride Stripped Bare by Her Bachelors, Even (The Large Glass)." Because the pieces are permanently installed and therefore immoveable, d'Harnoncourt centered the exhibition in the galleries that house the two works. She also reinstalled many of the works from the Walter and Louise Arensberg Collection in the Museum's special exhibition space, as a complement to the exhibition. D'Harnoncourt and McShine co-edited the exhibition catalogue, which included essays, reminiscences and appreciations of fellow artists, a "comprehensive selection" of Duchamp's work (rather than a catalogue raisonné) and nearly 400 photographs. According to New York Times art critic Roberta Smith, d'Harnoncourt's contribution to the catalogue "remains one of the best introductions to Duchamp's work and personality."

Other exhibitions organized or co-organized by d'Harnoncourt during her curatorial tenure include "Recent Acquisitions: 20th-Century Art Department" (1973 and 1974-1975), "Violet Oakley" (1979), "Eight Artists" (1978), "Futurism and the International Avant-Garde" (1980), and "John Cage: Scores and Prints" (1982). During her curatorial tenure, d'Harnoncourt also championed the Museum's commitment to strengthen its contemporary art holdings, bringing in major works by Ellsworth Kelly, Jasper Johns, Sol LeWitt, Brice Marden, Agnes Martin, Elizabeth Murray, Claes Oldenburg, and others.

THE LEADERSHIP BEGINS

Having received local and national recognition throughout her 14 years as curator, the 38-year old d'Harnoncourt was named the George D. Widener Director of the Philadelphia Museum of Art on July 1, 1982. She succeeded Jean Sutherland Boggs, who had served as director since 1979, and was leaving to head the Canadian government agency overseeing new construction for two of the country's national museums. According to local news accounts, the Museum originally offered the director's position in 1979 to d'Harnoncourt. She declined, explaining that "she was devoted to working directly with the art itself." By 1982, she changed her mind, rationalizing that "one doesn't lose one's field, one gains a museum."

With d'Harnoncourt's appointment as director, the Museum's Board of Trustees also adopted a new form of management. As director, d'Harnoncourt would be responsible for the art and professional aspects of the museum. Fiscal and administrative issues would be overseen by a newly created position--that of a full-time salaried president and chief executive officer. Robert Montgomery Scott, who had been the Museum's volunteer president since 1980, was selected for the job. At the time of her appointment, d'Harnoncourt identified three areas as critical to the Museum's success. First was the need to redefine the spaces within the building. As she observed at that time, the 500,000 square feet of interior space "seems enormous until the 170,000 square feet of total exhibition space is measured against the roughly 500,000 objects in the collection." Next was the Museum's relationship with the city of Philadelphia. (As a government entity, the city owns the Museum's main building and provides certain operating revenue.) D'Harnoncourt thought Philadelphia an exciting place, with many cultural institutions that afforded the Museum opportunities for collaboration. Last but not least was the Museum's permanent collection, which to d'Harnoncourt was what distinguished PMA from the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. According to the new director, "We have a collection that is at once national and international and regional." She was hopeful that new publications and exhibitions would increase public awareness of the variety and quality of the Museum's holdings and attract more visitors. Over the course of her career as PMA's director, d'Harnoncourt never lost sight of these and other issues that would transform the Museum.

The first project under d'Harnoncourt's directorship to address the issue of space was the reinstallation of its exceptional collection of European art. Completed in 1995, the project was the Museum's most ambitious to date, consisting of gallery construction and renovation, object conservation and reinstallation, and the development of new interpretive materials, such as gallery and object labels, acoustiguides and brochures. The project encompassed 95 galleries situated on 55,000 square feet of exhibition space and thousands of objects that included painting, sculpture, decorative arts and architectural elements dating from 1100 to 1900. Funding for the project was afforded by the Museum's Landmark Renewal Fund, which was the first major fundraising campaign d'Harnoncourt oversaw as director. The goal of the campaign, which began in 1986, was to raise $50 million for endowments, building improvements and a bridge fund for temporary operations support. To provide for the reinstallation project, the goal was increased an additional $10 million. The campaign concluded successfully in 1993, raising more than $64 million. With funding from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Museum's Women's Committee, the Rodin Museum also underwent interior renovations and reinstallation. Managed by the Museum and not half a mile away, the Rodin reopened in 1989.

The Museum's permanent collection was significantly enhanced soon after d'Harnoncourt's appointment when, in 1983 and 1985, it acquired thousands of drawings and prints by European old masters and artists of the 19th century. With funding provided by Museum trustee Philip Berman and his wife Muriel, the transaction was also a collaboration between two of Philadelphia's venerable cultural institutions as PMA purchased the works from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (PAFA). The acquisitions not only established PMA as a major repository for European works on paper, but also, as d'Harnoncourt often noted, allowed these works, all of which came to PAFA as bequests from three prominent Philadelphia families, to remain in the city. More than a decade later, Philadelphia's most prominent adopted son would also find a home at the Museum when in 1996 it acquired Jean-Antoine Houdon's "Bust of Benjamin Franklin" (1779).

During d'Harnoncourt's first 15 years as director, the Museum looked beyond Europe to expand its holdings. Like a survey of American history, acquisitions ranged from the monumental wood sculptures of "Comedy" and "Tragedy" carved by William Rush in 1808, acquired in 1985; to "Mr. Prejudice" (1943) by African American artist Horace Pippin, acquired in 1984; followed by Cy Twombly's suite of paintings "Fifty Days at Iliam" painted in 1977-1978 and acquired by PMA in 1989. From other corners of the world came an array of acquisitions, in seemingly complementary pairs, such as: a Japanese jar of the Momoyama Period (16th century) purchased in 1993 and a covered stoneware box designed in 1976 by the Japanese artist Hamada Atsuya given in 1992; a Noh robe of silk stamped with gold and silver of early 18th century Japan and a contemporary woman's kimono of painted silk, given as gifts respectively in 1988 and 1995; as well as a 13" carving of "Narasimha" from 1st century A.D. India purchased in 1987 and the 4-foot high stone figure of "Avalokiteshvara, Bodhisattva of Compassion" from 5th century A.D. India, which came to the Museum in 1994 as a bequest from its long-time curator of Indian art, Dr. Stella Kramrisch.

One of the earliest major exhibitions of this period was "Marc Chagall" (1985), an exhibition PMA co-organized with the Royal Academy of Arts, London. For the exhibition, d'Harnoncourt teamed with former Courtauld classmate Susan Compton to visit the 97-year old artist at his home in the French village of Saint-Paul de Vence and gain his approval of the show. Other important shows include "Japanese Design: A Survey Since 1950" (1994); "Constantin Brancusi" (1995); and "Cézanne" (1996). The latter was in every sense of the word a "blockbuster" of a show, generating $122.5 million in tourism for the city. The attendance of 548,000 visitors exceeded original estimates two-fold, giving good cause for Phlash, the city's tour bus, finally to include the Museum on its route. As Edward Rendell, then Mayor of Philadelphia recalled, "Anne really taught us the potential value of the museum to the city." While such exhibitions relied on loans of works of art, the permanent collection, as d'Harnoncourt hoped for, was well-documented through several major publications: "British Painting in the Philadelphia Museum of Art: from the Seventeenth to the Nineteenth Century" (1986); "Oriental Carpets in the Philadelphia Museum of Art" (1988); "Paintings from Europe and the Americas in the Philadelphia Museum of Art" (1994) and "Handbook of the Collections" (1995). So pleased was d'Harnoncourt with the handbook that in September of that year she mailed a copy to her mother, noting, "Dearest Ma - I'm so proud of this! It took years of work but I really think it looks like a labor of love. And ONLY $14.95!!"

Securing the support of city officials, as d'Harnoncourt did with the "Cézanne" exhibition, was always a critical task for a PMA director considering the Museum's ongoing financial relationship with the city. D'Harnoncourt's tenure was no exception. In fact, during the time the Museum was preparing for the Cézanne exhibition, the city announced that there would be funding cuts for the 1996 fiscal year, which translated to a $2 million loss for PMA. Only after protracted negotiations and a detailed study of the Museum's earned income potential did the city relent on its proposed budget trimming. Furthermore, by 1995 the Museum's endowment grew to more than $100 million, a remarkable gain from its 1982 assessment of $21 million, which was one of the lowest in the country for art museums. Such accomplishments afforded Robert Montgomery Scott, after more than 30 years of service, an opportune time to announce his retirement and leave the Museum on a positive note.

THE MOMENTUM CONTINUES

With Scott's retirement in 1996, the Board of Trustees once again approved a change in management, giving d'Harnoncourt the additional responsibilities of Chief Executive Officer (CEO). Instead of a president, the Museum would have a Chief Operating Officer (COO) who would work with d'Harnoncourt and senior staff in a variety of areas, such as strategic planning, finance, building operations, membership and marketing. In 1997 the new structure took effect with d'Harnoncourt assuming the dual position of director and CEO, and Gail Harrity joining the Museum as COO. Local media, in support of d'Harnoncourt's expanded role, noted her qualifications, namely her intellect, expertise in 20th-century art, international connections, and her being "the force behind [PMA's] new prominence in the international art scene." During her partnership with Scott and at his encouragement, she also became more involved with the business aspects of a museum and more adept at soliciting funds, an art in itself. Her dealings with the Mayor's office also grew during those years, supposedly giving a fresh start to what at times had been referred to as a "prickly" relationship between the Museum and city.

Considering her new role, d'Harnoncourt said her biggest concern was that the Museum "not lose momentum," and continue to capitalize on the accomplishments of the preceding decade. "We've reinstalled 90 galleries; we have 110 more we need to think about." As Edward J. Sozanski, art critic for the Philadelphia Inquirer, remembered the 1997 transition, "D'Harnoncourt hit full stride... [taking on] both sides of the museum operation." Building on the issues she identified in 1982 as critical to the Museum's success, d'Harnoncourt, over the next decade, oversaw the continued expansion and renovation of display and office space, a continued expansion of the permanent collection, and a continued effort to make the Museum ever more significant to its community.

To realize these goals, the Museum used the occasion of its 125th year in 2001 as the impetus for a major capital campaign, the second to be led by d'Harnoncourt. Launched in December 2000, the "2001 Fund 125th Anniversary Campaign" exceeded its $200 million goal by nearly $50 million when it concluded in 2004. The campaign's success allowed the Museum to finalize the purchase and renovation of an Art Deco style building completed in 1927 for an insurance company. Named after Ruth and Raymond G. Perelman, whose $15 million gift made the acquisition possible, the new space gave the Museum added galleries, offices, object storage and conservation facilities, as well as a state of the art library, which the public could now visit without appointment, and expanded archives research and work areas. The campaign also funded the implementation of new technologies to enhance education, research and conservation programs, while most of the money raised went to securing endowed positions in the curatorial, conservation, library and education departments. Such improvements made all the more reason for more art, which the campaign also afforded--adding approximately 4,000 works of art, including some in fields previously unrepresented in the Museum's permanent collection, such as African art. (A separate capital improvement project carried out in 2000 was the renovation of twenty galleries of modern and contemporary art in the main building.) Still keeping the momentum in 2006, d'Harnoncourt and Board Chairman H.F. Lenfest, announced that the firm of the critically acclaimed architect Frank O. Gehry would take on the ambitious long-range project to expand and restore the Museum's main building, a spectacular neoclassical design and long an icon of the city's skyscape. With those plans in development, the finishing work of Gluckman Mayer Architects continued across the street on the Perelman Building. It opened to the public on September 15, 2007, with much fanfare as d'Harnoncourt hoisted a pair of giant scissors and cut the ribbons crossing the building's entrance. While envisioning such expanses, d'Harnoncourt never lost sight of her staff in whose custody the art resided. Again, it was art critic Edward J. Sozanski who observed that d'Harnoncourt "expanded the curatorial ranks significantly, at a time when other museums were cutting back... "The fact that curators continued to be influential at [PMA] was something that became more evident--and unusual--as the years passed." While more and more directors were heeding business plans and bottom lines, d'Harnoncourt chose "the higher road...In her museum, "pandering to popular or commercial taste was discouraged."

During d'Harnoncourt's tenure as director and CEO, acquisitions, exhibitions and publications also continued to flourish. Works of art of note include two 1999 acquisitions--"Portrait of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Mifflin" (1773) painted by ex-patriot John Singleton Copley and an early 17th-century handscroll by the Japanese master Hon'ami Koetsu "Poems from the 'Shinkokin wakashu'." Other important acquisitions include: a 70-piece collection of Italian Renaissance maiolica given in 2000; more than 2,000 early modern and surreal photographs belonging to the renowned art dealer Julien Levy, acquired in 2001; "Mermaid" (1896), an oil painted on a trapezoidal canvas by Edvard Munch, acquired in 2003; and the monumental marble carved by Augustus Saint-Gaudens depicting the "Angel of Purity (Maria Mitchell Memorial)" (1902), a 2005 acquisition. Perhaps the most publicized acquisition was the one in 2006 for which PMA once again collaborated with the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. With the financial support of the city's philanthropic institutions and a national grassroots effort, the two institutions were able to counter an offer made by museums out of state and raise $68 million in less than two months to purchase jointly the "Portrait of Dr. Samuel D. Gross (The Gross Clinic)." Painted in 1875 by Thomas Eakins, the work was a true treasure to Philadelphia--created by one of America's most important 19th century artists who studied and taught in Philadelphia and portraying one of the city's pioneering surgeons. As to exhibitions, the Museum continued to present shows of broad appeal, such as "The Splendor of 18th century Rome" (2000); "Salvador Dalí" (2005); and "Andrew Wyeth: Memory and Magic" (2006). Under d'Harnoncourt's direction, museum goers were also introduced to the arts of peoples and times lesser known through exhibitions such as "'Shocking!' The Art and Fashion of Elsa Schiaparelli" (2003-2004); "African Art, African Voices: Long Steps Never Broke a Back" (2004-2005); "Tesoros/Treasures/Tesouros: the Arts in Latin America, 1492-1820" (2006); and "Ike Taiga and Tokuyama Gyokuran: Japanese Masters of the Brush" (2007). In addition to well-received exhibition catalogues, the Museum continued to publish surveys showcasing its permanent collections, such as: "The Fine Art of Textiles (1997); "Twentieth Century Painting and Sculpture in the Philadelphia Museum of Art" (2000); "Gifts in Honor of the 125th Anniversary of the Philadelphia Museum of Art" (2002); and "Italian Paintings, 1250-1450, in the John G. Johnson Collection and the Philadelphia Museum of Art" (2004). In 1997, a richly photographed history of the Museum's main building entitled, "Making a Modern Classic: the Architecture of the Philadelphia Museum of Art," was also published.

Throughout her career, d'Harnoncourt continued to contribute to scholarly studies. In addition to her writings on Duchamp for the 1969 PMA Bulletin and 1973 exhibition catalogue, she wrote essays for two other Duchamp exhibition catalogues published in Tokyo (1981) and Barcelona (1984), as well as the prefaces to the publication of Duchamp's notes, translated and arranged by Paul Matisse and to PMA's printing of the manual of instructions for "Étant donnés." Both works were published in 1987, marking the centennial of Duchamp's birth. Joseph Cornell, John Cage, Jackie Matisse and the art movement of futurism and the international avant-garde were other subjects d'Harnoncourt examined in several writings published between 1978 and 1983, as were the modern art collectors A.E. Gallatin and Walter and Louise Arensberg in her 1974 essay published in the journal "Apollo." As director, d'Harnoncourt also wrote introductions and forwards to numerous PMA publications.

Throughout her career, d'Harnoncourt nurtured the traits she so admired in her father. Like him, she thoroughly enjoyed the different narratives one created when arranging and rearranging works of art. (Despite her enjoyment, d'Harnoncourt--limited in time and confident in her staff--did not take a hands-on approach with special exhibition installations.) Like her father, she respected contemporary artists and took an active interest in their work and lives. Among the artists she championed and counted as personal friends were John Cage, Jasper Johns, Ellsworth Kelly, Jackie Matisse, Dorothea Tanning, Cy Twombly, and Andrew and Jamie Wyeth. D'Harnoncourt also characterized her father as someone who enjoyed people enormously and who loved solving problems and building consensus. As local press and colleagues observed at the time of her death, the same could be said of the daughter. To those she met, d'Harnoncourt was as much a "persuasive and effective diplomat" as she was an art historian. According to Edward J. Sozanski, "If she hadn't become a museum director, she would have made a splendid secretary of state."

Where d'Harnoncourt seems to have surpassed her father was her commitment in developing programs that spoke not only to the diversity of the Museum's art collection but to the diversity of the Museum's audience and community as well. No stronger evidence of this commitment is the expansion of the Museum's educational programs during her directorship. In 1982, the Division of Education coordinated public programs in Western and Eastern art as well as school programs and a student center. By 2007, the department consisted of 50 full and part-time staff offering programs addressing accessibility (special needs), distance learning, public programs in Western, Asian and Islamic and American Art, as well as concerts and performances, Latino outreach, family and community programs, studio programs and a number of teacher workshops and school programs that engage 75,000 students each year.

TIES THAT BIND AROUND THE WORLD

Institutions across the country and abroad sought d'Harnoncourt's advice. She served on at least 24 boards or visiting committees, participated in 34 advisory, selection, nominating or review panels, and was an active elected member to seven other organizations, two of which were learned societies. Her museums associations ranged from long-term to project-specific. For more than 20 years, she advised the Fabric Workshop and Museum (Philadelphia, PA), serving as an honorary guest curator in 2002 to mark the Workshop's 25th anniversary. For a dozen years she sat on the Board of Trustees of the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington, D.C. With other museums, her tenure was shorter but no less attentive. She served on the architect select committee when the J. Paul Getty Trust was planning to build its museum in Los Angeles in 1983, and ten years later was invited to join the museum's visiting committee. In 1999, she served on the architect select committee for the new Muse´e du quai Branly in Paris and that same year began her tenure on the International Advisory Board to the State Hermitage Museum. For the latter she made at least two trips to Russia. From approximately 1993 to 2000, she was a member of the Supervisory Board to the Van Gogh Museum Foundation in Amsterdam. Other affiliations to take her overseas included the International Exhibition Organizations Conferences (IEOC) and the International Council of Museums (ICOM). As a member of the Association of Art Museum Directors (AAMD), d'Harnoncourt traveled across the United States regularly for annual and midwinter meetings.

D'Harnoncourt's frequent commutes to Washington, D.C., as well as her affiliation with the Smithsonian Institution, went beyond her tenure with the Hirshhorn Museum. Between 1975 and 1983, she served three terms on the advisory panel of the Smithsonian Council, and in 1996, with the approval of the U.S. Congress and President, d'Harnoncourt joined the Board of Regents of the Smithsonian Institution as a citizen member. As a Regent, she sat on several committees and panels, and participated in the searches for the eleventh and twelfth secretaries--the Institution's highest office. D'Harnoncourt was also instrumental in saving the general post office building between 7th, 8th, E and F Streets NW, in the nation's capital, earning the thanks of fellow Regent Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan. In a 1996 letter written in true Moynihan style, the senator notes, "We have a practice up here of writing to thank colleagues who vote in support of one of our bills. I have not had overmuch occasion to do this of late, and lest a pleasant civility lapse into desuetude, I write to thank you for supporting the Motion...for rescuing the Old Post Office." The building still stands although probably not as the Regents envisioned. In 2002, it opened as the Hotel Monaco. D'Harnoncourt remained an active Regent through 2007. She was bestowed the honor of Regent Emeritus the following January.

Other memberships of note include d'Harnoncourt's election in 1988 to the American Philosophical Society, the internationally recognized scholarly organization founded in Philadelphia by Benjamin Franklin. A few years later she joined the Board of Trustees of the Philadelphia Award, which is one of the city's most prestigious honors, and in 1997 she was chosen its co-recipient. In 1995 she was elected a fellow to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. D'Harnoncourt was also an active board member to the John Cage Trust, Fairmount Park Art Association of Philadelphia, Graduate School of Fine Arts at the University of Pennsylvania (also known as PennDesign), Institute for Advanced Study (Princeton, NJ), Henry Luce Foundation and Georgia O'Keeffe Foundation.

RECOGNIZING A LEGACY...REMEMBERING A STYLE

As a museum professional for four decades and as a trustee or advisor to numerous cultural institutions, Anne d'Harnoncourt inspired people around the world to look at, think and talk about art. The momentum she inspired seemed unstoppable. Until June 1, 2008. Recovering from minor surgery, d'Harnoncourt died unexpectedly that night at home from cardiac arrest. She was 64 years old.

During her lifetime, Anne d'Harnoncourt received more than 35 awards and six honorary degrees. Her honors included the Chevalier dans l'Ordre des Arts et des Lettres given from the Republic of France in 1995 and in 2007 the Mexican Order of the Aztec Eagle. In the weeks following her death, city, state and federal officials issued resolutions honoring her life. On June 4, 2008, the flag of the United States was flown over the United States Capitol in her memory. Later that month a memorial service was held on the Museum's east terrace, and in September nearly 2,000 people filled Philadelphia's Academy of Music to attend a celebration of her life and legacy.

At six feet tall, Anne d'Harnoncourt truly had a commanding presence. With her throaty voice, bright flowing scarves, bold jewelry and a tendency to express her delight with a "WEEE" or a "WOW," d'Harnoncourt stood out in a crowd. But never away from one. Never so aloof that she would not stoop down to retrieve a scrap of paper discarded on a gallery floor. Or at special celebrations join staff members in dance on the Museum's terrace. She was never too busy to call a member of her PMA family who was recovering in a hospital or recuperating at home. Nor too distracted not to stop and listen as a Museum educator talked with school children.

In 2006, gallery director and curator Hans Ulrich Obrist asked d'Harnoncourt to describe her utopian museum. To her, if all museums across the country could afford not to charge the public, that would be ideal. Free access. What better way to be with art when that is all one asks.

A chronology of the life of Anne d'Harnoncourt is included in the finding aid to the Anne d'Harnoncourt Records, which can be accessed through the link referenced below.

Scope and Contents

As director and CEO of the Philadelphia Museum of Art (PMA), Anne d'Harnoncourt once observed that art museums, particularly those in big cities, are very intense places. For the professionals who work there, she thought it amazing for any to establish a "big life" outside their institution. While the Anne d'Harnoncourt Papers make evident that art to d'Harnoncourt was both a professional and personal passion, this material also reveals that her life outside PMA was indeed big as she involved herself with people and organizations, local, national, and international, to keep all the arts relevant and essential in building and bridging communities. Most of the material traces her professional development in and away from the Museum and consists primarily of correspondence, press clippings, photographs of works of art and events, draft lectures and notes, and a number of certificates, citations and object awards. Several photos and papers pertaining to her husband and Museum colleague, Joseph J. Rishel, are also included. Family papers and photographs and school records comprise d'Harnoncourt's personal papers and collectively suggest how her family and early education provided the groundwork for her interests, convictions and goals. Her father, René d'Harnoncourt, is most prevalent in the family files, primarily as the subject of third-party correspondence and author of a few personal writings.

Arranged in subseries of date spans, Series I, "Correspondence and other materials," begins with a few letters pertaining to d'Harnoncourt's second museum job as an assistant curator at the Art Institute of Chicago, followed by documentation of her 1971 return to PMA that continues through her 25 year tenure at the Museum until her death in 2008. Periodic groups of letters of congratulations indicate significant moments in her career, while other correspondence addresses d'Harnoncourt's contribution of time, advice, and/or funds and other gifts to various cultural institutions and causes. Also made part of the Anne d'Harnoncourt Papers is the significant documentation of the worldwide reaction to her unexpected death on June 1, 2008. Most of that material, comprised of memorial event documentation and condolence cards and letters, is processed as "Condolences and memorials," the last sub-subseries of Series I. Memorabilia, most associated with PMA, and various reference materials make up "Other records."

Based on the documentation of Series II, "Remarks and recognitions," d'Harnoncourt gave nearly 80 talks outside the Museum over a 30-year period, from lectures and symposiums to dinner remarks and college commencements. During the course of nearly a quarter of a century, she also received more than 40 awards and honorary degrees (two given posthumously). Documentation for most of these events consists of the notes d'Harnoncourt prepared for her remarks, correspondence, ephemera, a few photographs that capture the special occasion unfolding, and certificates and objects awarded to her. Most of the photographs and press clippings that comprise Series III, "Photographs and publicity" also chronicle milestones in d'Harnoncourt's career. Photos document PMA and non-PMA events, with snapshots capturing some of the more informal gatherings. Rishel appears with d'Harnoncourt in many photos and is featured in some of the press clippings. Over the course of her career, d'Harnoncourt served as an active member, advisor or trustee to nearly 60 cultural institutions. Series IV, "Professional affiliations" pertains to a significant number of those institutions, which ranged from universities and learned societies to private foundations and museums.

The three subseries comprising Series V. "Personal papers," document d'Harnoncourt's family, primarily her parents and Austrian cousins, and her student years, from grade school to graduate school. Several personal items from her childhood and teenage years are also included. Not surprisingly, the person most prevalent in the family material is her father, René d'Harnoncourt, best known for his 1949 to 1968 tenure as director of the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York. He is included in this collection primarily as the subject of third-party correspondence and author of a few personal writings. The "School records" subseries consist of notebooks, term papers, school bulletins and other materials, documenting her studies from grade to graduate school. Most of that material pertains to her undergraduate years at Radcliffe College. In a separate subgroup, a few poems and drawings by d'Harnoncourt, as well as a children's book printed in German, give an idea to the musings of a young mind.

Arrangement

Series I through IV consist of documentation pertaining to d'Harnoncourt's professional activities and affiliations. There are two subseries to Series I, "Correspondence and other materials": "Names and subjects" and "Other records." Series II, "Remarks and recognitions" consists of two subseries; namely, "Awards and honors" and "Outside lectures and other remarks." A number of oversized documents account for the seemingly large size of this series, 13.25 linear feet. As indicated by its title, Series III, "Photographs and publicity," consists of two subseries: "Photographs" and "Press clippings." Series IV, "Professional affiliations," consists of files alphabetically arranged by name of institution. The fifth and final series, "Personal papers," is comprised of three subseries: "Family papers and photographs;" "Student records;" and "Other material."

Throughout this finding aid and within folder titles, the abbreviation "PMA" refers to the Philadelphia Museum of Art. In folder titles, "AdH" refers to Anne d'Harnoncourt. For purposes of preservation, photocopies were made during processing to replace post-it notes. Photocopies were made on 8 1/2 x 11 paper, and folded around or clipped to the document on which the note was affixed.

Collection Inventory

Correspondence and other materials, 1926, 1968-2010, undated. 5.25 linear feet.

Scope and Content Note

"Correspondence and other materials" is the most general compilation of files within d'Harnoncourt's papers. The "Names and subjects" subseries consists primarily of correspondence d'Harnoncourt designated for filing as "AdH personal." Further markings on most of the material dated after 2000 indicates that copies were also made to file in her museum records. Such cross-referencing makes evident that in d'Harnoncourt's life, the personal was often not separate from the professional. The sub-subseries of date spans were assigned during processing to reflect the different stages of d'Harnoncourt's career as well as to accommodate the need to keep materials created after 1996 closed for additional time. Additional information of items unique to a particular sub-subseries is given in that scope and content level. D'Harnoncourt's death in 2008 touched many people. Documentation of several memorial events along with letters of condolence and donations make up the bulk of the final sub-subseries.

The "Other records" subseries consists of materials other than correspondence, including clippings for general reference, draft writings, biographical material and ephemeral mementos.

Arrangement

The first subseries, "Names and subjects," is divided into four sub-subseries of chronological date spans. The fifth and final sub-subseries is "condolences and memorials." Files to the second subseries, "Other records" are titled by format and arranged alphabetically.

Names and subjects, 1968-2010, undated.

Scope and Content Note

Much of the correspondence throughout the entire subseries is a general exchange of pleasantries. From the number of handwritten notes, d'Harnoncourt truly enjoyed sharing items of interest with friends and colleagues, supplementing her observations with enclosures of magazine articles, newspaper clippings, exhibition catalogues or other PMA publications. She also made monetary contributions to a number and variety of organizations. In addition to thanks from recipients of d'Harnoncourt's largesse, many visitors to PMA would write of their delight over a particular exhibition or their appreciation of d'Harnoncourt taking the time to meet with them.

Throughout her career, d'Harnoncourt regularly received invitations to speak at special events, participate in symposiums or other professional venue, contribute to scholarly publications or sit for interviews. Her responses to those she could not accommodate are filed in the general alphabetical folders by corporate name, except those from 1996 to 1998. The latter are filed separately as "Various. Regretted request," and no doubt reflect the filing habits of her assistant at that time. Folder titles beginning with "Various" indicate multiple authors or in the case of the "Henry Luce Foundation matching gift" files, multiple recipients. As a director of the Foundation's board, d'Harnoncourt would make donations to institutions of her choosing, and the Foundation would match the amount.

Arrangement

Most of these papers were filed by year only. The decision to arrange material alphabetically within the four date spans was made during processing. This arrangement is intended to give researchers a better understanding of individuals or institutions that frequently corresponded with d'Harnoncourt and in whose activities or information she took a personal interest. Items are arranged alphabetically by corporate, rather than individual, name unless the institutional affiliation is unclear. Separate folders have been created for any name represented with 10 or more items or for noteworthy names of individuals or institutions.

Access Restrictions

Except for the "Condolences and memorials" sub-subseries, which is open to researchers, all other sub-subseries comprised of papers dated after 1999 adhere to the 15-year period of closure described at the collection level.

1968-1981, 1968-1981, undated.

Scope and Content Note

The first sub-subseries coincides primarily with d'Harnoncourt's curatorial tenure at PMA. The Art Institute of Chicago material is slightly earlier, when she worked there as an assistant curator. That documentation is minimal but includes a July 1971 letter from her AIC mentor, A. James Speyer. The letter mixes business with personal as Speyer comments on the young bride's recent wedding. Another letter written that same month and year, and included in the Philadelphia Museum of Art" folder, came from d'Harnoncourt's new "boss," Evan Turner, who served as PMA's director from 1964 to 1978. In this letter formalizing d'Harnoncourt's return to PMA, Turner notes that one of her first major responsibilities would be to coordinate the Marcel Duchamp retrospective that PMA was organizing with MoMA. D'Harnoncourt was well familiar with the late avant-garde artist from her tenure as curatorial assistant when she participated in PMA's 1969 acquisition and installation of his mixed media assemblage, "Étant Donnés." In the "Columbia University" folder, its single item--a 1971 letter signed "Allen"--was no doubt written by Allen Staley, who was the Assistant Curator of Painting and Sculpture at PMA during d'Harnoncourt's first brief tenure there as curatorial assistant. Staley, who in 1971 was a professor of art history at Columbia, opens the letter noting his belated return of a copy of d'Harnoncourt's graduate thesis, which examined the moral subject-matter in Pre-Raphaelite painting. A leading authority on British art of the 18th and 19th centuries and therefore Pre-Raphaelite art, Staley found her study excellent and fascinating, and in fact said he thought it "criminal" that she was "neglecting (and apparently abandoning) an area in which [she knew] so much."

The "Various. Job offers" folder was created during processing and includes a 1980 letter from Peter Smith, founding director of the Hood Museum at Dartmouth College. Smith's appears to be the first attempt to woo d'Harnoncourt from PMA with a directorship. D'Harnoncourt declined the invitation, noting in her response, which is also included, that she is "deeply rooted in Philadelphia" at this point.

Scope and Content Note

Although d'Harnoncourt did not assume the role of Chief Executive Officer until 1997, her appointment was announced by February of the previous year. Thus her appointments as Museum Director and Chief Executive Officer define the parameters of the "1982-1996" sub-subseries. As the number of files indicates, her appointment as director drew many congratulations. Well-wishers included artists such as Emlen and Gloria Etting, Sol Lewitt and George Segal, as well as other prominent figures, such as Pierre and Tana Matisse and Buckminster Fuller. Her second appointment drew congratulations primarily from friends and colleagues in the Philadelphia area.

A career path not taken is the subject of the "Various: MoMA director search" folder. When Richard Oldenburg announced his resignation as director of the Museum of Modern Art in 1993, a protracted search for his replacement began. D'Harnoncourt was one of the contenders, and according to newspaper accounts, perhaps the only woman considered for the position. A clipping from a local newspaper documents her decision to decline the offer, and the letter from Robert P. Casey, at that time the Governor of Pennsylvania, is one of the items expressing pleasure in her choice to stay.

Scope and Content Note

This sub-subseries currently is closed to researchers.

This sub-subseries and the remaining ones replicate the arrangement by date span of d'Harnoncourt's PMA records that were created after 1996. All date spans, therefore, coincide with her dual role as PMA's director and CEO. Of note in this sub-subseries are the letters of congratulations sent to d'Harnoncourt upon her receipt of The Philadelphia Award, one of the city's most prestigious recognitions, and one bestowed nearly 50 years earlier to d'Harnoncourt's directorial predecessor at PMA, Fiske Kimball. Additional materials, including a draft of her remarks, are filed in the "Awards and honors" subseries to the "Remarks and recognitions" series.

Scope and Content Note

This sub-subseries currently is closed to researchers.

As documented in the "Library Company of Philadelphia" folder, d'Harnoncourt again crossed paths with Fiske Kimball, her directorial predecessor by 30 years. (Both were recipients of the prestigious Philadelphia Award--Kimball in 1950 and d'Harnoncourt in 1997.) In the tradition of Benjamin Franklin and its other original founders, the Library Company offers shares in its organization as a form of support. In 2001, it informed d'Harnoncourt that the share previously purchased in 1929 by Kimball had become available. Appreciating the historical symmetry, she purchased the share, noting "what fun!" Also of note from 2001 is the correspondence in the "Tanning, Dorothea" folder. In a letter of thanks about "that lovely day I spent at the Museum," Tanning, whose career as a surrealist artist began in the 1940s, includes a commentary on the state of galleries today. She observes that the "stunning" little Duchamp show was a "heartening contrast from the barn-sized repositories of emptiness so ubiquitous in Chelsea and Soho galleries," and suggests that the latter may be more appropriately considered "arenas" or "hippodromes."

As to the local art community, d'Harnoncourt had a close and long-term relationship with the Fabric Workshop and Museum (FWM). The founder, Marion "Kippy" Stroud was a friend of 40 years, and starting in 1981 d'Harnoncourt served on FWM's advisory board. In 2003, d'Harnoncourt curated an exhibition there to mark FWM's 25th anniversary. Her working papers are included here. Other series in this collection hold additional material related to the Fabric Workshop and Museum. Images of the 1992 anniversary gala at which FWM honored d'Harnoncourt, along with artist Louise Bourgeois are filed in the "Photographs" sub-subseries of "Photographs and publicity" series. The series "Professional affiliations" includes d'Harnoncourt's files pertaining to her Advisory Board tenure.

Two of the last times d'Harnoncourt sat for extended interviews are also documented here. In celebration of its 75th anniversary, the archivist of the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) invited d'Harnoncourt to participate in their Oral History Project in order to share her memories of her father, who served as MoMA's director for nearly 20 years. That letter of invitation, dated February 24, 2003, is included here. D'Harnoncourt's interview transcript was approved posthumously in 2010. A finalized transcript, generously provided by MoMA, is now available in the Museum Archives. For "A brief history of curating" (2008), Hans Ulrich Obrist interviewed d'Harnoncourt in 2006. Although the amount of correspondence in the folders identified by his name is minimal, it documents his initial contact with d'Harnoncourt and samples of earlier interviews.

D'Harnoncourt's friendship with Kimberly Camp extended beyond the latter's tenure as director of the Barnes Foundation. A folder of their personal correspondence is included here. Another friend of note is the artist Jasper Johns. The one letter from d'Harnoncourt to the artist in this sub-subseries belies their close friendship. Additional correspondence between the two, dated as early as 1983, is filed in the "Names and Subjects" series of her director records. Most of the correspondence with the Museum of Modern Art pertains to the oral history interview of d'Harnoncourt, which was proposed in 2003 and conducted that year and in 2004.The correspondence here concerns d'Harnoncourt's review and comments of the draft transcript.

Scope and Content Note

This sub-subseries documents much of the worldwide response generated by d'Harnoncourt's unexpected death. Papers pertaining to the nearly one dozen events held in her memory and the hundreds of condolence cards and letters that poured into the Museum and to her husband comprise the bulk of the material. To console the grief of so many and to celebrate her life, the Museum honored d'Harnoncourt with several special events that are here documented in various degrees. The two events attended by the largest crowds are those best documented; namely the "Day of Appreciation" held two and one-half weeks after her death, and "Celebrating the life and legacy of Anne d'Harnoncourt," held on what would have been her sixty-fifth birthday. Special programming for the June 19 day of appreciation consisted of a tribute held in the auditorium for invited staff and guests followed by an outdoor memorial service held on the Museum's east terrace and opened to the public. The files hold cards and programs distributed at the event, invitation lists and other working papers. Also included is a CD that was given to Museum visitors that day. On it is the audio tour, "Director's Delights," narrated by d'Harnoncourt in which she talks about some of her favorite works of art at the Museum. On September 7, 2008, the Academy of Music in center city Philadelphia served as the site to "Celebrating the life and legacy of Anne d'Harnoncourt. A DVD is included in the records, capturing the music and remarks presented to the approximately 2,000 attendees. The length of the recorded program is 1 hour and 17 minutes. Other materials consist of planning documents, typescripts of some of the remarks given or read, as well as a sample of the invitation and program booklet, which included an illustrated biographical sketch of d'Harnoncourt. The correspondence following the special event files consists of the letters of condolence and donations sent to the Museum, the Museum's gift acknowledgement letters and the sympathy cards and notes sent to Joseph Rishel.

    Scope and Content Note

    Much of the material to this subseries could be considered d'Harnoncourt's miscellaneous working papers and ready reference materials, such as the several versions of her curriculum vitae sporadically tracking her career over a 30-year period. There are also a few folders that document memorable moments in her career. For example is the reproduction of an editorial cartoon that appeared in a local newspaper the day before Christmas of 2006.To counter an offer made by museums out of state, the Philadelphia Museum of Art and the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, in less than two months, raised $68 million to jointly purchase "Portrait of Dr. Samuel D. Gross (The Gross Clinic)" by Thomas Eakins. Editorial cartoonist Tony Auth captured the spirit of the event, while adding a personal note of thanks and applause to d'Harnoncourt. Another memento is the souvenir program to the 2001 dinner for the Smithsonian Institution's Board of Regents in celebration of the inauguration of the President of the United States, George W. Bush. The booklet contains historical tidbits about the dining and entertainment choices of past presidents. Upon Congressional approval, d'Harnoncourt jointed the Board of Regents in 1996 as a citizen member. More personal is the sheet music to "Simple Gifts," composed in memory of "Suzy" Kalkstein, PMA's Director of Human Resources who, after 30 years of service with the Museum, died in 2006 at the age of 53.The folders of writings subtitled "Paying attention," refer to the essay d'Harnoncourt wrote for the 1993 exhibition catalogue, "Rolywholyover: a circus/John Cage." Originally conceived by the artist, the exhibition opened at the Los Angeles's Museum of Contemporary Art the year after Cage died. It came to PMA in 1995.

          Remarks and recognitions, 1976-2009, undated. 13.25 linear feet.

          Scope and Content Note

          As a frequent guest speaker and recipient of numerous awards, d'Harnoncourt was often called upon to share her thoughts with an audience. Because of the similarity, this series consists of documentation of both.

          In recognition of d'Harnoncourt's life's work, a number of cultural and educational institutions and business organizations sought to honor her and usually invited her to participate in the related ceremony or celebration. The "Awards and honors" subseries documents these occasions, from invitation and planning stage to the day of the event and follow-up press coverage. Documentation consists primarily of correspondence and papers d'Harnoncourt drafted for her remarks, as well as ephemera, press clippings and some photographs. Diplomas, oversized certificates and other formal resolutions, and several medals and commemorative bowls are also included.

          The second subseries, "Outside lectures," pertains to d'Harnoncourt's speaking engagements at venues other than PMA and on topics not specifically about the Museum. The occasions vary, from club luncheons and award dinners to scholarly lecture discussions and symposia. The degree of detail to d'Harnoncourt's remarks varies. Most often, she would put her thoughts down as notes or outlines. Occasionally, she prepared complete narratives. Other talks are documented solely with her lists of comparative slides. D'Harnoncourt usually wrote these documents by hand using her trademark blue felt pen. Less frequent are typescripts, usually prepared as record copies or at the request of the hosting institution. Documentation also includes correspondence, ephemera and event working papers, such as guest lists.

          In both subseries, folder titles begin with event date, followed by name of host institution, event and folder contents. "Remarks" indicates that the folder contains d'Harnoncourt's handwritten (Ams) or typed (Ts) notes. Most of her remarks are in a fairly complete narrative form; a few are mere jottings of ideas. Details of her topics of discussion and types of recognitions are given at the respective subseries levels.

          Awards and honors, 1985-2009, undated.

          Scope and Content Note

          D'Harnoncourt's contributions to the arts and education, to the city of Philadelphia, and to the empowerment of professional women did not go unnoticed. According to these records, she received six honorary doctoral degrees, including one in music. Both France and Mexico awarded her their country's highest cultural honors in 2002 and 2007, respectively. In recognition of their partnership, both personal and professional, d'Harnoncourt and her husband Joseph Rishel were honored by the Marriage Council of Philadelphia in 1994, as well as the city's chapter of the French-American Chamber of Commerce in 1999.

          A recognition with particular resonance was d'Harnoncourt's nomination in 1997 for the Philadelphia Award, one of the city's most prestigious honors. Nearly 50 years earlier, the award went to PMA's director Fiske Kimball. Instituted in 1921 by publisher-turned-philanthropist Edward Bok, the award is given each year to "a citizen of the Philadelphia region who, during the preceding year, acted and served on behalf of the best interests of the community." D'Harnoncourt shared the award with Jane Golden, who pioneered the City Mural Arts Program, as part of the Philadelphia Anti-Graffiti Network. PMA hosted the dinner in their honor, held in 1998.

          D'Harnoncourt's unexpected death in 2008 brought formal condolences from city, state and federal representatives. The mayor gave a tribute of official recognition by the city of Philadelphia, and City Council passed a resolution honoring her life. Both the House of Representatives and Senate of the state's General Assembly also passed resolutions of honor and condolences. Initiated by U.S. Representatives Robert Brady and Chakah Fattah, two tributes were read into the Congressional Record, and at the request of Rep. Brady, the Flag of the United States was flown over the United States Capitol in d'Harnoncourt's memory on June 4th, three days after she died.

          As early testament to her legacy, d'Harnoncourt received two awards posthumously--both in recognition of her contribution to the "built environment." Among the accomplishments cited were the significant renovations she championed of PMA's original iconic structure, as well as the Perelman Building, the neighboring art deco landmark that now serves as additional museum space.

                              Scope and Content Note

                              Away from PMA, d'Harnoncourt remained a frequent speaker on behalf of the arts and a constant examiner of the role of museums. Based on these files, her most frequent topic was artists--speaking at their exhibitions or dedications of works of art, at award ceremonies and at memorial services. Almost all were friends or long-time associates, including "Jackie" Matisse Monnier, Judith Rothschild, Isamu Noguchi and Ellsworth Kelly. Twice she presented an award to Andrew Wyeth--including the 2004 event that also honored his son Jamie. Another artist who figures prominently here is Marcel Duchamp, of whose work d'Harnoncourt is considered an expert. He is the subject of four of her lectures, and the springboard to one she gave in 1987 entitled, "The bottlerack in the museum: reflections on contemporary art, museums, and the public."

                              Beginning with a 1997 symposium in Tokyo, d'Harnoncourt and her colleagues used the approaching millennium as reason to reflect on the past performance of museums and what to anticipate for the future. Topics for the 21st century included museum management, the role of curators, and the continued need for arts and liberal studies. While "Back to the future" was a theme d'Harnoncourt used in speaking of museums in general, she noted it most often in her talks about PMA, and how its past defined its future. Those and other PMA-related remarks are in the Anne d'Harnoncourt Records, in the "Remarks" subseries to the "Long-term subjects" series.

                              Also of note in this subseries are the files pertaining to the 2002 lectures, "Art museums and public trust," presented by Harvard University Art Museums. D'Harnoncourt participated in the lectures as well as the later roundtable discussion about them. She declined, however, to have her remarks included in the 2004 publication regarding both events entitled, "Whose muse? Art museums and the public trust." In related correspondence, d'Harnoncourt noted that the "written context is so different than the context of a series of talks," and that the transcript of her talk would need substantial additions to make it publication-worthy. Being unable to commit the time necessary to make these changes, d'Harnoncourt decided not to contribute to the publication except for her comments to the roundtable discussion.

                              The only recorded interview of d'Harnoncourt in this collection is her discussion with the host of the Drexel InterView, a half-hour program produced by Drexel University (Philadelphia, PA). Documented here in DVD format, the interview, which aired on April 12, 2005, is available online via the University's YouTube channel, which is referenced below. When asked about some of the Museum's major transformations, d'Harnoncourt cited the reinstallation of the Museum's European art galleries. She identified it as one of the most significant initiatives during her tenure as Museum director, as its rearrangement of works of art literally allowed visitors to "walk through time." She also talked at length about the inspiration behind blockbuster exhibitions, particularly the Museum's major retrospective of the surrealist artist Salvador Dalí, which was on display at the time of the interview. Other topics d'Harnoncourt touched upon included the influence of her father, museum trends, and the new opportunities offered by the Internet to reach different audiences.

                                          Photographs and publicity, 1965-2012, undated. 1.25 linear feet.

                                          Scope and Content Note

                                          This series chronicles d'Harnoncourt's career as captured by photographers and the press. While many of the photographs and press clippings pertain to her activities on behalf of the Museum, her other associations and a few personal moments are also documented.

                                          Photographs, 1965, 1972-2008, 2012, undated.

                                          Scope and Content Note

                                          These photographs give visual evidence to some of the people, works of art, and events spanning d'Harnoncourt's career in the arts, as well as a portrait from her student days at Radcliffe. During processing, the photographs were arranged by general subject categories, resulting in three sub-subseries: "Objects and artists," "Events," and "Portraits."

                                          Photographs pertaining to d'Harnoncourt's parents and other relatives are included in the "Family papers and photographs" subseries of the "Personal papers" series.

                                          Scope and Content Note

                                          "Objects and artists" consists primarily of images of d'Harnoncourt standing alongside a work of art in PMA's collection. There are a few photographs of artists and works of art in situ. Of note is the contact sheet identified by a note on its verso as "Low voltage prototype." The cascading image in each frame appears to be Marcel Duchamp--perhaps an allusion to his "Nude descending a staircase." If so, it is likely that "Paul," who autographed the work, is Paul Matisse, the artist's stepson with whom d'Harnoncourt worked during PMA's 1969 installation of Duchamp's "Étant donnés" assemblage.

                                          Scope and Content Note

                                          Most of the photographs come under the category of "Events," which include those held at PMA as well as other venues, and capture formal as well as informal gatherings. Documented here are exhibition openings, receptions, and special events at which d'Harnoncourt was the guest of honor, as well as commencement ceremonies at which she received honorary degrees. A special occasion for PMA was in 1997 when First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton came for a personal tour of two special exhibitions featuring the works of Auguste Rodin. Nearly a dozen photos document the visit. Candid shots include d'Harnoncourt and others in various cities attending special events or socializing with friends and colleagues in a cabin in the woods or on the beach.

                                          Several photographs document events hosted by institutions with which d'Harnoncourt was professionally affiliated, serving as a board member or advisor. Of note are the snapshots of her trip in 2002 to Russia. D'Harnoncourt was appointed to the International Advisory Board of the State Hermitage Museum in 1999, and based on her files, she traveled there to attend board meetings in 2001, 2002 and 2003. D'Harnoncourt had both a long-term personal and professional affiliation with the Fabric Workshop and Museum (FWM), located in Philadelphia. The event documented here celebrates both ties. For its 15th anniversary benefit in 1992, FWM honored d'Harnoncourt, along with renowned sculptor Louise Bourgeois. Sixteen contact sheets record gala attendees, which included d'Harnoncourt's 92 year-old mother. The program included in the folder describes the achievements of both honorees and outlines the evening's agenda.

                                            Scope and Content Note

                                            Many of the photographs identified as "Portraits" were taken for various publication purposes. The earliest appeared on the cover of the May 1965 Radcliffe Quarterly, showing a young d'Harnoncourt at work in the library, pencil in hand and a flower in her hair. The credit line does not identify the sitter or the photographer, but simply states "Spring at Radcliffe." However, written on the verso of the photo is "Olive Pierce Photo 1965." Although a line is drawn through the name, so too is d'Harnoncourt's, which is also noted on the back. Since we can identify d'Harnoncourt as the sitter, it is likely that the photographer was Pierce whose images of New England life and the repercussions of the 1990 Gulf War are in the collections of several museums, including the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. The 1982 portrait of d'Harnoncourt that appeared in most of the articles about her appointment as Museum director was taken by John Condax. In the 1930s, Condax, accompanied by the Italian photographer Tina Modotti, traveled to Mexico to photograph its landscape and people. He also lectured at the Barnes Foundation. Contemporary photographers represented here include Andrea Baldeck and Michael Bryant. Bryant's 2007 image of d'Harnoncourt standing in a gallery of the Museum's recently opened Perelman Building is the last formal portrait of her.

                                            Perhaps the most unconventional portrait of d'Harnoncourt was taken by a most unconventional artist. In 1979 d'Harnoncourt received a color slide of a picture taken of her the previous year at an event at the Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA) in Philadelphia. The image of d'Harnoncourt in flat planes of neon colors is Warholesque in its style. (A scan of the slide was made during processing and included in the folder.) According to the letter accompanying the slide, the photographer was "Bettina," writing from New York City's Chelsea Hotel. Because of this unique address, Bettina is no doubt the same reclusive artist featured in two recent documentaries. Released in 2008 and 2010 both films tell the story of a woman said to have been the most beautiful resident of the legendary hotel whose art went unappreciated and who therefore "[hid] herself away in her studio for over 40 years."

                                            Portraits of Joseph Rishel are also included. Of note are those taken by Rishel's friend and professional photographer Samuel Green in 1976 when Rishel, Green and d'Harnoncourt were guests at Glenveagh, a magnificent estate in Ireland owned by long-time PMA associate Henry P. McIlhenny. In the distance, in two of the portraits Green snapped of Rishel is the hint of a figure. According to an account by Rishel at the time these photographs were being processed, the distant figure was Greta Garbo, the reclusive starlet of Hollywood's golden age. Garbo came at the invitation of Green, and in respect of the actress's famed declaration that she "wanted to be left alone," Green photographed Rishel with Garbo without interfering with the actress's legendary request for privacy.

                                            Scope and Content Note

                                            With her appointment in 1972 as PMA's first associate curator of 20th century painting, the media soon recognized and reported on d'Harnoncourt's work and promising career future. In 1977, the well-known New York Times art critic, John Russell singled out d'Harnoncourt in his article, "The Arts in the 70's: new tastemakers on stage," which is included here in photocopy form. Noting the impact of women holding influential positions in the art world and because of their number being too many to list in one article, Russell selected d'Harnoncourt as his one example. "[I]t would be hard...to find anyone in the profession who doubts that Anne d'Harnoncourt, now curator of 20th-century art in the Philadelphia Museum, will one day make a great museum director. And it is in the 70's that people like Miss d'Harnoncourt have come into their own." As the number of later writings about d'Harnoncourt attest, Russell could not have been more prescient.

                                            The majority of clippings in this subseries appeared in general-interest magazines and newspapers. The arrangement of certain clippings corresponds with significant changes in d'Harnoncourt's career at PMA. The earliest clippings pertain to her curatorship (1972-1978); followed by coverage of her appointment as director (1982-1983); and then with her dual position appointment as director and chief executive officer (1996-1997). When the Museum of Modern Art was searching for a new director in 1994, d'Harnoncourt's name was often included as a candidate. The file of 1994-1995 clippings documents the speculation and her decision to remain in Philadelphia.

                                            Even as a young scholar, d'Harnoncourt's observations were taken seriously. In the 1983 Burlington Magazine article included here, the author cites her 1967 MA thesis on Pre-Raphaelite art as one of a number of secondary sources discussing the basic imagery examined in the article. Also of note are three articles in the 1985-1989 general clippings file. The 1989 Town & Country and 1988 ARTnews articles are devoted solely to d'Harnoncourt. In the 1988 Savvy article, she is one of the four women featured as "[helping] shape our view of art." The 1998 Vanity Fair and Philadelphia Inquirer articles are filed separately as each includes correspondence pertaining primarily to the planning and execution of the articles.

                                            D'Harnoncourt's office maintained clippings in separate folders only up to 1998.During processing, later clippings were transferred from her general annual folders (now Series I) and included here.

                                                    Scope and Content Note

                                                    Institutions across the country and abroad sought d'Harnoncourt's advice. While a few of these organizations may have invited d'Harnoncourt in order to capitalize on her reputation, these records make evident that her involvement with most was far more than titular. D'Harnoncourt was an active participant and frequent traveler on their behalf--attending meetings, taking notes, corresponding with colleagues and offering her feedback on an array of proposals. Based on her files, d'Harnoncourt served on twenty-four boards or visiting committees, participated in thirty-four advisory, selection, nominating or review panels, and was an active elected member to seven other organizations, two of which were learned societies. While most of d'Harnoncourt's professional affiliations are represented here, documentation pertaining to twenty such organizations was processed with her Museum records. These are identified in the scope and content note of the "Names and Subject" series to the Anne d'Harnoncourt Records.

                                                    Documentation consists primarily of correspondence, meeting agendas and minutes, notes and annotated reports or other documents. Many of the folder titles identify the capacity in which d'Harnoncourt participated. During processing, any meeting preparatory material not annotated by d'Harnoncourt was discarded as were all financial reports, personnel documentation, and grant review and nominating working papers, including any correspondence noting selections or recommendations.

                                                    Certain institutions requested the return of their records. These are listed as follows along with d'Harnoncourt's role. The Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden--Board of Trustees, 1974-1896; the Henry Luce Foundation-- Board of Directors since 1994; the Georgia O'Keeffe Foundation--1994 consultant and Board of Directors since 2000; the Smithsonian [Institution] Council member--1974 [to 1983?]; Smithsonian Institution Board of Regents since 1996, with emeritus appointment in 2008; and the Tate Modern (Gallery)--1998 Director Search Committee. For these institutions, only personal or third-party correspondence not related to any organizational activities or decisions was retained. The Tate Modern file was returned in its entirety. Other institutions requested that certain personnel documentation be returned; namely the American Philosophical Society, CASVA and the Institute for Advanced Study. In each case, the amount of papers returned was minimal.

                                                    Arrangement

                                                    Alphabetical by corporate name, and chronological within each subgroup, with general files preceding annual meeting files.

                                                    Access Restrictions

                                                    Records created before 1997 are open. Records created after 1996 will be subject to a 15-year closure based on the last year of the following date spans: 1997-2003 records will become available on January 1, 2019; and 2004-2008 on January 1, 2024. Because files are arranged by corporate name rather than date span, restriction dates are noted at the folder level. At the request of certain institutions, their file groups have restriction periods greater than 15 years. Those access dates are noted at the corresponding folder level.

                                                    Personal papers, circa 1927-2008 (bulk 1971-2008). 2.75 linear feet.

                                                    Scope and Content Note

                                                    The three subseries comprising d'Harnoncourt's personal papers offer documentation of her family, primarily her parents and Austrian cousins, her education, from grade school to graduate school, and a few of her memories, comprised of several personal items from her childhood and teenage years.

                                                    "Family papers and photographs" was created during processing to identify and separate materials pertaining to d'Harnoncourt's family from all other papers she marked as "AdH personal." In various degrees of detail, "Student records" documents d'Harnoncourt's entire formal education from the ages of 6 to 24 and a few of the unique opportunities afforded her at some of the most distinguished schools in the United States and abroad. The schools she attended were the Brearley School, Radcliffe College and the Courtauld Institute of Art at the University of London. Sketches and poems by d'Harnoncourt, as well as a 1948 Austrian copy of "The Princess and the Pea" comprise the final subseries, "Other materials."

                                                    Family papers and photographs, circa 1927-2008.

                                                    Scope and Content Note

                                                    Most of the documentation in this subseries pertains to d'Harnoncourt's father, René, and consists primarily of third party correspondence. There are some original writings of his, including captioned drawings, a notebook, and photocopies of published articles. He is also the subject of most of the photographs that comprise the "Photographs" sub-subseries. Other correspondents include d'Harnoncourt's mother, some of her Austrian relatives, and a few members of the Rishel family.

                                                    D'Harnoncourt's correspondence with her husband, Joseph Rishel, is included in the "Names and Subjects" subseries of Series I. It is a small amount primarily of faxes d'Harnoncourt sent while her husband was traveling on Museum business. Photographs of Rishel are included with those of d'Harnoncourt in Series III, "Photographs and publicity."

                                                    Correspondence and other papers, circa 1927-2008, undated (bulk 1971-2006).

                                                    Scope and Content Note

                                                    As the amount of third-party correspondence makes evident, d'Harnoncourt received many inquiries and publishing requests in regard to her father. His expertise of Mexican and Native American art as well as his tenure at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) were points of interest with many scholars. While she could not always answer the inquiries, d'Harnoncourt would at the least steer scholars to more appropriate sources--from MoMA's archives to her own mother. Occasionally, correspondents would include reminiscences about her parents or photocopies of drawings by her father. Such inclusions are noted in the folder title. Particularly endearing are the two illustrated letters attached to the September 12, 1995, correspondence from a curator at the Denver Art Museum. Both were written and illustrated by René d'Harnoncourt while he worked for the Indian Arts and Crafts Board at the Department of the Interior. In the letter of May 9, 1944, addressed to Frederic Douglas, Denver's curator at the time, d'Harnoncourt expresses regret at not including sufficient "Baby data" in his earlier report. He then notes that, "When Anne arrived she weighed 7 pounds and was 19" tall...[S]ince then she has grown at the rate of an inch a month (I hope she stops before she gets a mile long) and is at present a very plump healthy and happy young lady with curls on the top of her head and brownish grey eyes...Anne is quite a sociable Baby and likes company." At the end of the letter, he includes an illustration of his newly extended family, curls and all. According to the cover letter, d'Harnoncourt should have received the original letters. Photocopies, however, are all that is attached here. Another recollection is included in the letter dated May 19, 2002, from Ruther Carter Stevenson, the daughter of Amon G. Carter and the person most responsible for building the eponymous art museum her father had envisioned. She recalls the time when the senior d'Harnoncourt was in Mexico and the family's pet boa constrictor climbed up into his bed to warm itself. As suggested by these illustrated letters, d'Harnoncourt was just as inclined to sketch as he was to express his thoughts in words. Further evidence of particular note are the three sheets of drawings dated 1946. That year d'Harnoncourt was appointed Senior Counselor of Visual Art of the Preparatory Commission of UNESCO, the United Nations entity devoted to the collaborative promotion of education, science and culture. The appointment required d'Harnoncourt to spend almost three months in London. To keep his daughter, then three years old, informed of his activities, he sent an illustrated explanation of his colleagues and their duties. On another sheet, he describes what he encounters along his walk to work on the streets of London. The third is the story of his finding the young son of the building's janitor under his desk and their interesting conversation about the boy's pet mouse. On the verso, as well as more serious side, is part of a letter to his wife, in which he expresses concern over the organization and leadership of the commission.

                                                    Correspondence of d'Harnoncourt's mother, Sarah, is not extensive and primarily pertains to answering inquiries about her husband. Most of the other correspondents are d'Harnoncourt's Austrian relatives, some with titles reflecting the family's aristocratic lineage. Most well known is Nikolaus "Niki" Harnoncourt, a frequent guest conductor of the Vienna and Berlin Philharmonic Orchestras who was also one of the first musicians to perform Baroque and Classical-era music on period instruments. The folder of press clippings d'Harnoncourt kept of her cousin speaks to his international reputation. There are also several letters with another musical relative, the mezzo soprano Elizabeth von Magnus-Harnoncourt, known professionally as Elizabeth von Magnus. At the memorial service held at the Academy of Music on what would have been d'Harnoncourt's 65th birthday, her niece took part in the tribute, singing Haydn's "The Spirit's Song." Family gatherings are the primary topic of discussion in the "Rishel" folders. The amount of correspondence is minimal.

                                                    Scope and Content Note

                                                    D'Harnoncourt's father is again the primary subject here. Folder titles include all documented information, including name of photographer, locale, and other individuals in the photograph. Most of the sitters in the group photograph that includes the artist John Marin remain unidentified. The "Carr relatives" folder consists of six photographs of d'Harnoncourt's maternal relatives. While most of these are current images of family members, there is also a copyprint of a 1923 portrait of d'Harnoncourt's mother and four cousins, all of whom graduated from Wellesley College between 1923 and 1926. Were it not for the hairstyle, it would be easy to mistake Sarah, pictured at far left, for her daughter.

                                                    Scope and Content Note

                                                    D'Harnoncourt's records from each of the schools have been processed as three separate sub-subseries. The first pertains to the Brearley School, a 12-year college preparatory school on the upper east side of New York City, which she attended from 1949 to 1961.School publications are the primary source of documentation in this sub-subseries. The "Radcliffe College" sub-subseries pertains to d'Harnoncourt's undergraduate studies, which she pursued from 1961 to 1965, majoring in History and Literature. Of the three, this sub-subseries is the most comprehensive, documenting her class work, extracurricular activities, and awards. Most of the documentation consists of the two dozen notebooks and writing assignments that identify a good portion of d'Harnoncourt's curriculum, and give insight into the workings of this young scholar's mind. Also included is a voluminous binder she prepared for "Project Tanganyika" as well as several school publications, a few of which include photographs of d'Harnoncourt. Detailed descriptions of material from d'Harnoncourt's Brearley and Radcliffe years are given at the respective sub-subseries levels.

                                                    D'Harnoncourt's most significant education for what would become her lifetime career in the visual arts is unfortunately the least documented. From 1965 to 1967, she pursued her graduate studies in art history at the Courtauld Institute of Art, which is a college of the University of London. The only record of her time there is a copy of her thesis, "The awakening conscience: a study of moral subject-matter in Pre-Raphaelite painting, with a catalogue of pictures in the Tate Gallery." The thesis incorporated the findings she made during her 6-month internship at the Tate, where she prepared full catalogue entries on 30 Pre-Raphaelite paintings and drawings in their collection. The internship was part of the requirement of the Master of Arts program.

                                                    Brearley School, 1951-1962.

                                                    Scope and Content Note

                                                    School publications offer the largest amount of documentation of d'Harnoncourt's earliest formal education at the Brearley School. It appears that her mother received and kept the periodic school bulletins and annual publications as her name is written on the cover of one; and on another is a note, "René--this just came." The run of bulletins is not continuous, with certain volume numbers missing. Based on other cover markings, Sarah d'Harnoncourt took particular parental interest in the three earliest issues that included writings about academic pressure, social practices, and the notion of a well-rounded girl. In keeping with her concerns, she clipped and inserted a Readers Digest article within the Fall 1951 volume. The headline states, "Every child has a gift," and that "it's a wise parent who knows how to encourage a child's hidden talent." D'Harnoncourt's mother also noted to "keep" the issue published in June 1959, which includes among its student writings a poem by her daughter entitled "Doubt." Judging from the title, one would expect self-doubt to be the subject of a poem written by a young sophomore. Instead d'Harnoncourt's work is more of an existential exercise, challenging concepts of reality and the unreal. Even more expressive of d'Harnoncourt's talents is the illustrated essay "African seminar," published in the March 1960 bulletin, in which she recounts her unordinary summer recess. In the summer of 1959, d'Harnoncourt, not quite 16 years old, traveled with several other American high school students to Africa to participate in a four-week International Affairs seminar sponsored by the Pomfret School (Pomfret, CT). The young travelers visited Kenya, Northern Rhodesia (now Zambia), and Ghana to take part in programs intended to bring them face-to-face with Africa's limited but growing educational systems and its young people. The three annual publications that follow are a combination of school catalog and annual reports, listing calendars, curriculum, faculty, school day description, and tuition, as well as funding reports. In the student magazine, the "Beaver," d'Harnoncourt assumed the role of art editor. The two issues here are peppered with her fanciful illustrations, including center spreads in both issues and the cover art to the 1959 publication. She also contributed a few poems in each.

                                                    In the three folders following these publications, d'Harnoncourt gives a more detailed account of her African seminar through her personal writings. While traversing the continent, observing the landscape and wildlife, and meeting students, villagers, missionaries, and government officials, she recorded her experiences and reactions in two detailed essays and a notebook of quick observations and first impressions. Her descriptions make evident her enchantment with the colors, sounds and spiritedness she encounters. D'Harnoncout's enthusiasm, however, does not cloud her critical eye as she also notes the contrasting lifestyles, the subtle discrimination, the not-so-subtle segregation, and a sense of urgency among Africans to move forward and improve their conditions. Included in the related correspondence is a letter from a 21-year old student d'Harnoncourt met in Ghana. Dated August 24, the letter was written soon after the American students left. In it the young man notes that at 5'11" he is one of the tallest boys in his class, which is why he chose d'Harnoncourt, "a fairly tall girl," for his pen pal. Apparently there was no further exchange of letters. The remaining correspondence consists of two memos addressed to "Dear Troops." Based on the signature of "Bob" and his references to Hampton Institute in the 1961 memo, the author is Robert Allen Lazear, who taught history at Pomfret from 1951 to 1962 when he became assistant to the President of Hampton Institute (now Hampton University in Virginia, a historically black college). His 1962 memo describes current political events in Rhodesia and with it is the October 1961 issue of the "Mindolo Newsletter," named for a town in Northern Rhodesia. According to the editor's note, Lazear was the Pomfret administrator who brought a group of students to Africa in 1959. Therefore, the "troops" addressed in the memos were d"Harnoncourt and her fellow student travelers.

                                                    The only samples of d'Harnoncourt's class work at Brearley consist of two term papers, written in her junior and senior years for her classes in world history and modern European history, respectively. D'Harnoncourt created illustrated covers for both reports.

                                                    Scope and Content Note

                                                    The material pertaining to Radcliffe College offers the most comprehensive documentation of d'Harnoncourt's formal education, from freshman orientation to graduation. Although few in number, the correspondence reveals that d'Harnoncourt received honors from start to finish. In recognition of her "outstanding academic achievement" and "unusual promise" as a student and citizen, the college named her an honorary Ann Radcliffe Scholar for 1961-1962. Four years later, d'Harnoncourt graduated magna cum laude and received the Captain Jonathan Fay Prize, which at the time of her attendance was awarded to the "graduating senior woman who has given evidence of the greatest promise by her scholarship, conduct, and character during her four years at Radcliffe and Harvard." In between the awarding of these recognitions, d'Harnonncourt was inducted into Phi Beta Kappa, Iota of Massachusetts in 1964, and the following year received its $100 prize as ranking senior. [Since combining chapters with Harvard in 1995, it is now the Alpha Iota of Massachusetts]. Membership to this academic honors society goes to an undergraduate student whose course of study is "distinguished by excellence, reach, originality, and rigor."

                                                    Most of the notebooks consist of lecture notes of courses in German and English literature and history, with German class notes written in that language. In almost all, d'Harnoncourt adorns a number of pages with her fanciful illustrations of animals, medieval maidens, and contemporary figures. Based on hairstyles, some of the latter could be self-portraits. While playful, these drawings do not appear to be the result of idle daydreaming. Some clearly illustrate the topic under discussion, such as a drawing pertaining to her study in U.S. race relations (Social Relations 134). A scrawny rodent, identified as the "impoverished rat," faces the stouter "enriched rat," which is followed by the cropped legs and clawed paws of the "middle class cat." The notebook for the German 75 course is also worth noting. Based on the many drawings, d'Harnoncourt must have been quite inspired by the German philosophers and romantic poets she studied. There are also various papers loosely inserted into many of the notebooks, including writing assignments, and handouts such as syllabi and exam questions. D'Harnoncourt annotated many of the handouts. Most of the writing assignments, including those in separate files, are annotated and graded by the instructor whose feedback was often positive, but on occasion roughly critical. In her freshman seminar in historical geography, d'Harnoncourt's writings received both. While the professor thought her final term paper regarding pilgrim routes was awkwardly constructed in parts and lacked flair, he thought otherwise of her essay on the rise of monasticism. It was published in the spring 1963 issue of Harvard's "Journal of the social sciences." D'Harnoncourt's thesis comparing the poetry of Shelley and Hölderlin is also included here, but without comments. In comparing their "mythmaking" poetry, she argued that their works exemplified a desire to "improve reality" rather than serve as vehicles of escapism. In addition to her writings, images of d'Harnoncourt also made their way into some of the college publications, including the cover of the May 1965 Radcliffe Quarterly.These are filed separately from the other publications and clippings.

                                                    While at Radcliffe, d'Harnoncourt had the extraordinary opportunity to return to Africa in the summer of

                                                    1962--this time as a member of Project Tanganyika, a volunteer program sponsored by the Phillips Brooks House at Harvard University. [Tanganyika is now Tanzania, excluding the island of Zanzibar.] At the invitation of the government, hers was the second group of college volunteers to work in Tanganyika, which had only gained its independence the previous December. The government's goal to teach the 80 percent of its population that could not read or write no doubt reminded d'Harnoncourt of the sense of urgency and ambition she admiringly described during her time in Africa three years prior. Her full participation--from planning and preparing to fund raising for next year's group--is well-documented. For example, in the November 1962 issue of the Radcliffe Quarterly, project participant Cornelia Lewis, who was teamed with d'Harnoncourt, recounts the group's activities and impressions. Since d'Harnoncourt seems not to have recorded her experiences, Lewis's three-page account is all the more significant. From Lewis, we learn that the two young women lived in the capitol, Dar es Salaam, and taught at two community centers. With a classroom of adult women, they instructed their students in English, sewing, cooking, and "American tribal dancing," parenthetically defined as the bunny hop and the twist. In separate sessions, they worked with refugees from South Africa and Mozambique, and in Kinondoni, a Dar suburb, they taught English to 60 men employed as houseboys, and served as interim instructors to that suburban district's new community center.

                                                    Lewis's article was included in a binder that pertains to the 1962 trip and that of the following year. Although some papers are topically grouped together, there is no discernible order to their arrangement in the binder. The first two pages are flyers announcing presentations on campus of the 1962 project by its participants. Further in the binder are a two-page list of slides for "Tanganyika talks" and a draft letter by d"Harnoncourt requesting fundraising advice. Clearly the participants' dedication to the project did not end with their departure from Africirca Most of the papers document how d'Harnoncourt prepared for the trip and the training she received. There are numerous handouts and notes d'Harnoncourt took to learn Swahili, as well as notes on the history of Tanganyika. Memos advise on what to pack, traveling and lodging. There are also summary reports of the 1961 and 1962 projects, as well as copies of several lengthy letters that based on their dates were written by a student participating in the 1963 trip. Before discarding the original binder, a record copy of its front cover was made during processing. The papers, now in folders, are in original binder order. The last folder contains several printed items that were inserted in the back of the binder. Included are two booklets for the study of elementary Swahili, a government pamphlet in English and another in Swahili, ephemera, and a clipping of the1964 article in Time magazine naming Martin Luther King "man of the year."

                                                    In an interview, d'Harnoncourt recalled taking a couple classes in the history of architecture and auditing one in Chinese painting during her senior year. Unfortunately, there is no documentation of her course work in this collection.

                                                    Scope and Content Note

                                                    The only documentation of d'Harnoncourt's studies at the Courtauld Institute of Art in London is a copy of her M.A. thesis entitled, "The awakening conscience: a study of moral subject-matter in Pre-Raphaelite painting, with a catalogue of pictures in the Tate Gallery." This copy includes footnotes, bibliography and an appendix of catalogue entries. Missing, however, are the list of plates and plates I-XX, which were submitted in a separate binder. As she did for her undergraduate thesis, d'Harnoncourt once again examines works of art that speak to social reform. In her Radcliffe writing, she draws similarities between two poets who although never in contact with one another shared similar responses to the contemporary changes wrought by the French revolution--an observation she felt had been overlooked by contemporaries and later scholars. In her Courtauld study, d'Harnoncourt uses as a springboard to her observations, "The Awakening Conscience," a painting by Holman Hunt that sympathetically portrays the degradation of prostitution. She argues that the "anti-pictorial attitude to painting" practiced by the pre-Raphaelites, although brilliant, was too labor-intensive to last. Yet the combination of such subjects and style successfully appealed to the contemporary Victorian middle class, who according to d'Harnoncourt "loved hard facts, melodramatic novels, and strong sermons, and who understood [Hunt's] picture as a combination of all three."

                                                    If it were not for her name written on the covers of the two undated sketchbooks, the drawings in each appear to be by two different hands. In the smaller book are a few sketches of hands, faces and figures apparently drawn from life. The larger book holds figures far more stylized and attenuated, similar to her father's drawing style and to the style of the fanciful doodles she would make on many of her meeting notes as an adult. In it, d'Harnoncourt also transcribed two French love songs, using her figures to illustrate the lyrics. Since this sketchbook is the same brand of notebook she used at Radcliffe, these sketches probably date from her undergraduate years. Most of the loose-leaf sketches in the second folder demonstrate yet another style of drawing. Part human, part animal or part male, part female, these surreal figures are truly fantastic and frightful flights of a young woman's fancy. Countering these images is a lifelike sketch of a man seated at a piano, and two caricatures of a gendarme and the face of an attractive woman who happens to have three eyes. All of these drawings were inserted in the March 6, 1962 issue of Harvard's Crimson Review.

                                                    As suggested by their titles, d'Harnoncourt's poetic topics were as varied as her styles of drawing. Included here are "The strangely disturbing tale of the key-collecting magpie," "Inundation," and "A valediction forbidding mourning for those living." It is unclear when she wrote these. Although the first two poems are similarly numbered (6.A and 6.C, respectively), the first was inserted in a Brearley school journal; the second, as well as third, were in a publication from her Radcliffe days.

                                                    With family ties to Austria and college-level studies in German literature and language, it is not surprising that d'Harnoncourt would have a 1948 illustrated children's book, "Die Prinzeffin auf der Erbfe" [The Princess and the Pea]. While it appears that a child's hand added color to some of the illustrated costumes and book cover, it is not known if this book was from d'Harnoncourt's childhood or a later keepsake acquisition.
