Biographical Note

William Slattery Lieberman (1924-2005), began his lengthy career at The Museum of Modern Art in 1943 as a volunteer in the Department of Exhibitions and Publications under the direction of Monroe Wheeler. He graduated from Swarthmore College (where his mentor was W.H. Auden) in that same year. He left the Museum for two years of graduate study at Harvard University where he was a pupil in the museum course taught by Paul J. Sachs.

In 1945 he returned to the Museum as assistant to Alfred H. Barr, Jr.; in 1949 he became the first curator in the newly established Department of Prints at the time of the opening of the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Print Room. When the department expanded to become the Department of Drawings and Prints in 1960, Lieberman became its curator, and in 1966, its director. In 1967 he was concurrently appointed curator in the Department of Painting and Sculpture, then director in 1969.

When the curatorial departments of the Museum were reorganized in 1971, the Departments of Drawings and Prints became separate entities and Lieberman concentrated his energies solely on the Department of Drawings serving as its first director (1971-1979). While at the Museum, he directed over forty exhibitions including Modern Masters: Manet to Matisse, Max Ernst, Joan Miró, Modigliani, Etchings by Matisse, and Art of the Twenties. He also served as an advisor to the Junior Council between 1954 and 1964. He left the Museum in November 1979 to become Chairman of the Twentieth Century Art Department at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.


Scope and Content Note

The papers, with inclusive dates of 1939-1979, document his involvement with Museum activities. They also refer to the activities and exhibitions organized by the Junior Council such as Young American Printmakers [MoMA Exh. #547], Recent Drawings, U.S.A. [MoMA Exh. #601] and the preparation of The Museum of Modern Art Calendar and Junior Council Print Sales. Correspondence relating to the Dance and Theatre Archives exhibitions is included in addition to correspondence with such artists as Chryssa, Masuo Ikeda, Marc and Valentina Chagall, Robert Motherwell, Lee Krasner, Leonard Baskin, and Emilio Sanchez, many of whom were personal friends of Lieberman.

Other correspondents include Museum trustees, patrons, and friends such as Lily Auchincloss, Walter Bareiss, Margaret S. Barr, Celeste G. and Armand P. Bartos, Prinz Franz von Bayern, Ralph F. Colin, Douglas Cooper, Philip Johnson, Countess Ghislaine de Kermaingant, Samuel M. Kootz, Ronald S. Lauder, Estée Lauder, Elizabeth Bliss Parkinson Cobb, Samuel Marx and Florene Marx Schoenborn. Lieberman kept files on specific Museum personalities and events such as Bates Lowry's resignation and the deaths of Alfred H. Barr, Jr. and René d'Harnoncourt.

Lieberman's trip to Japan (1964-1965) for the purpose of organizing The New Japanese Painting and Sculpture and Nelson A. Rockefeller's bequest to the Museum (1979) are among other subjects included in the Papers. Documentation on the disposition of the Lyonel Feininger Estate, including correspondence with Theodore Lux Feininger, Andreas and Julia Feininger (Mrs. Lyonel Feininger), and Ralph F. Colin, can be found in Series I.A.
