The Museum of Modern Art Museum Archives
The original processing and finding aid were prepared by Rona Roob and others in the 1980s. In 2016 the collection was reprocessed and the finding aid rewritten by Elena Cordova.

Overview of the Collection

Creator: Barr, Alfred H., Jr. (Alfred Hamilton), 1902-1981
Title: Alfred H. Barr, Jr. Papers
Inclusive Dates: 1891-1982
Bulk Dates: 1923-1967
Quantity: 117 Linear Feet
Abstract: The Alfred H. Barr, Jr. Papers encompass the personal and professional papers of MoMA’s founding director. The collection documents the establishment of the Museum, its early years, and the rise to prominence of modern art in the United States during the twentieth century; as such, it is one of the most important collections in MoMA Archives. Composed of materials from Barr’s childhood and school years through his retirement from the Museum, the papers provide a comprehensive picture of this prominent life and career in the arts. Included are professional correspondence with Museum officials, curators, art historians, critics, magazine editors, artists, and collectors, as well as personal correspondence with family and friends. Files also cover MoMA staff, exhibitions, publications, lectures, and collections. A substantial amount of the documents and ephemera found in the collection pertain to the subjects of modern and abstract art generally; to artistic movements such as Cubism and Futurism; and to individual artists, in particular Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, and Lyonel Feininger.

Arrangement

The Alfred H. Barr, Jr. Papers were initially processed in the 1980s. In subsequent years, MoMA Archives acquired additional material, which required processing and integration into the collection before it could be made available to researchers. Incorporating this new material offered MoMA Archives the opportunity to reevaluate the entire collection’s preexisting arrangement, to ensure that it met current professional standards and accurately reflected the collection’s contents. A reprocessing project was therefore undertaken in 2016. This project led to some substantial changes in the collection’s arrangement—particularly regarding series arrangement, which has been restructured to reflect a more logical organizational scheme and to improve the accessibility of the collection’s contents. Many folder titles and descriptions have also been edited and updated to more accurately reflect their contents. Most idiosyncratic language and outdated departmental shorthand has been removed and replaced, which should enable enhanced web-based keyword searching. However, in the interest of adhering to the archival principle of original order, most file runs from the collection’s initial processing remain in place. As a result, researchers may notice that files within certain series are arranged neither entirely alphabetically nor chronologically. For more information on specific series arrangement, researchers should refer to the Scope and Content note and individual series abstracts.
The Papers are organized into seventeen series:

Biographical Note

Alfred H. Barr, Jr. was born in Detroit, MI in 1902 and was raised in Baltimore, MD. His father, Alfred Sr., was a Presbyterian minister and his mother, Annie Elizabeth Wilson Barr, was a homemaker. He began his art historical training at Princeton University, where he studied with Charles Rufus Morey, who shaped Barr’s understanding of traditional historiography and iconography; and Frank Jewett Mather, who introduced him to modern art and the work of the European avant-gardes. Barr completed his B.A. in 1922 and his M.A. the following year. In 1924, Barr traveled to Europe for the first time (he referred to it as his “Grand Tour”), with his friend Edward King; and soon after returning enrolled in a doctoral program in art history at Harvard University. While there, Barr studied connoisseurship and Museum studies under Paul J. Sachs at Harvard’s Fogg Museum, and Sachs would remain an influential figure in Barr’s career for the next forty years.In 1925, Barr was asked to deliver several lectures and to curate an exhibition on modern prints and drawings at the Fogg. According to art historian Sybil Kantor, Barr’s first foray into independent curating was a critical moment in his developing career, as it was his first opportunity to articulate publicly his evolving ideas about modern art. As Kantor writes, “his message was clear: modern art can be approached rationally, objectively, and without hysteria or (his favorite word) prejudice.” (Kantor, 83)

After completing his oral examinations in 1925, Barr took a teaching position at Princeton, where he began formulating a course on artistic modernism. His first opportunity to teach the course—Tradition and Revolt in Modern Painting—came at Wellesley College in 1927, where it became the first class on modern art to be offered in America. During this time, Barr was also cultivating relationships in the Boston and New York areas with people who were similarly inclined toward the promotion of European modern art in the United Stated. These relationships—with people like Jere Abbott, Henry-Russell Hitchcock, Lincoln Kirstein, Frank Crowninshield and Katherine Dreier—would prove critical to the later founding and development of MoMA. With the help of Dreier, Barr mounted an exhibition at Wellesley titled Exhibition of Progressive Modern Painting: From Daumier to Corot to Post-Cubism, which organized paintings not by chronology or geography, but rather by visual similarities. Paintings were grouped together based on common formal techniques, putting Barr’s emergent commitment to formalism and formal analysis on view even at this early moment.

In 1927, Barr returned to Europe. On this trip, Barr collected books, photographs, and other information on modern art, paying particular attention to art coming out of Germany, the Netherlands, and Russia. It was a formative trip for Barr in that it allowed him to observe first-hand the artists aligned with de Stijl, the Bauhaus, and the Constructivists. Upon returning to Wellesley, Barr used the material and experiences gathered on his trip to create new courses on modernism.

In the late 1920s, Abby Aldrich Rockefeller, Lillie P. Bliss, and Mary Quinn Sullivan, devoted patrons of the arts, had begun work to establish what would become the Museum of Modern Art in New York, alongside other influential art world contemporaries like A. Conger Goodyear, Frank Crowninshield, and Paul Sachs. After Barr received a Carnegie Foundation grant in 1929, to support the completion of his dissertation at New York University, Sachs contacted him to ask if he would become the founding director of the Museum. Barr replied, “This is something I could give my life to.” (Kantor, 189) Barr would become instrumental in establishing and implementing the Museum’s founding mission, which he envisioned as open-ended and multidisciplinary, with departments dedicated to disciplines beyond painting and sculpture. As Barr wrote in a brochure announcing the Museum’s founding, “[T]he ultimate purpose of the Museum will be to acquire, from time to time (either by gift or by purchase) a collection of the best modern works of art. The possibilities of The Museum of Modern Art are so varied that it has seemed unwise to the organizers to lay down a definite program for it beyond the present one of a series of frequently occurring exhibitions during a period of two and a half years.” (The Museum of Modern Art brochure, II.C.2)

Barr helped to organize and write the exhibition catalogue for the Museum’s inaugural exhibition, Cézanne, Gauguin, Seurat, van Gogh [MoMA Exh. #1, November 7–December 7, 1929]. The show was considered a huge success and set the standard for exhibitions moving forward. In this exhibition, Barr traced the stylistic intersections that defined and unified the artists’ work, showcasing what has come to be understood as Barr’s deeply formalist art historical and curatorial methodology. In 1931, Barr curated another important exhibition, Henri Matisse [MoMA Exh. #13, November 3–December 6, 1931], which allowed him to synthesize his extensive research on the life and work of the French painter, sculptor, draftsman, and printmaker. Many art historians consider this exhibition and its corresponding catalog to be the predecessor to what is perhaps thought of as Barr’s most seminal piece of scholarship, Matisse: His Art and His Public, published twenty years later in 1951.

In 1930, Barr married his wife, the Italian art historian Margaret “Marga” Scolari Barr, who would be both his companion and collaborator for the rest of his life. They would have one daughter, Victoria, born in 1939. (For more on Scolari Barr, see the finding aid for her papers .)

After an incredibly prolific period during the Museum’s earliest years—in which time Barr also curated such important shows as—German Painting and Sculpture (MoMA Exh. #11, March 12–April 26, 1931)—Barr took a sabbatical from his position as director of the Museum in 1932. Alfred and Margaret traveled to Europe, where among other things they witnessed the censorship of modern art by the Nazis. In 1933, Barr returned to the Museum and resumed his position as director.

In 1936, Barr prepared the exhibition and catalogue for the groundbreaking show Cubism and Abstract Art (MoMA Exh. #46, March 2-April 19, 1936). This exhibition is particularly notable because it marks the implementation and use of Barr’s famous chart, which illustrated the genealogy of modern art from Cézanne and Gauguin to Surrealism and the Bauhaus (Barr had been working on the chart for nearly a decade before it was included in the exhibition catalogue). As Barr wrote in the exhibition’s catalogue, Cubism and Abstract Art was “intended as an historical survey of an important movement in modern art.” It was the first in a series of exhibitions, curated between 1936 and 1943, devoted to the principal movements in modern art, which included Fantastic Art, Dada, Surrealism (MoMA Exh. #55, December 7, 1936-January 17, 1937); Masters of Popular Painting: Modern Primitives of Europe and America (MoMA Exh. #76, April 27–July 24, 1938); Americans 1943: Realists and Magic-Realists (MoMA Exh. #217, February 10–March 21, 1943); and Romantic Painting in America (MoMA Exh. #246, November 11, 1943-February 6, 1944). During this time, Barr also had the opportunity to mount a retrospective exhibition on the work of Pablo Picasso. Picasso: Forty Years of His Art [MoMA Exh. #91] opened to the public on November 15, 1939, in MoMA’s new “International Style” building, designed by Philip L. Goodwin and Edward Durell Stone. The show contained ninety-five pieces lent by the artist himself, including the large-scale mural Guernica.

In 1939, Stephen Clark, a newspaper publisher and prominent collector, was appointed chairman of MoMA’s board of trustees. Clark and Barr were prone to disagreements over curatorial and administrative matters, and that same year Clark asked Barr for his resignation. In 1943 Barr was relieved of his directorial duties and spent the next four years at the Museum focusing on scholarship rather than Museum operations, before he was appointed, in 1947, to the position of director of collections, which he held until his retirement in 1967. During this period, Barr worked closely with the Museum’s new director, René d'Harnoncourt, and their relationship was perhaps the defining one of Barr’s later career. Anne d’Harnoncourt commented on her father’s relationship with Barr in an oral history in which she said that “He [René d'Harnoncourt] wanted to make things work, and he believed in the Modern and its mission. He believed very profoundly in Alfred Barr. He told me and my mother a number of times that he believed his mission at the Museum was to make it possible for Alfred Barr to do what needed to be done.” (Oral History Program, interview with Anne d’Harnoncourt, September 11, 2003, p. 11. The Museum of Modern Art Archives, New York.)

Barr remained very productive during his last decades at MoMA, continuing to write and organize exhibitions related to Matisse and Picasso. In 1946, he was finally awarded his Ph.D., after the publication of Picasso: 50 Years of His Art. Barr also worked tirelessly to assemble the Museum’s permanent collection, amassing a world-class collection of modern and abstract art through acquisitions from Museum trustees and other figures with longstanding relationships to the Museum, such as Philip Johnson and Olga Hirsch Guggenheim. Barr’s last publication, published in 1977, reflected his longstanding work at the Museum as a curator and a collector: a partial catalogue of the Museum’s holdings titled Painting and Sculpture in The Museum of Modern Art, 1929-1967.

In 1960, thirty-one years after MoMA’s founding, John Canaday of the New York Times referred to Barr as “the most powerful tastemaker in American art today.” While Barr himself may have resented the label, it nevertheless accurately spoke to Barr’s enduring legacy as one of the foremost defenders of modern art in America during the twentieth century.

After suffering from Alzheimer’s disease for many years, Alfred H. Barr, Jr. died in 1981 in Connecticut.


Scope and Content Note

The Alfred H. Barr, Jr. Papers document the life and career of one of the most notable art historians and curators of the twentieth century. The records date from 1891to 1982 with the bulk of the materials dating from 1923 to 1967. Included are personal and professional correspondence, teaching and lecture notes, research materials, drafts and completed publications, photographs, travel notebooks, newspaper clippings, as well as materials relating to personal interests and hobbies including bird-watching, travel, and church activities. Taken together these materials present a comprehensive view of Barr's personal and professional lives, and those researchers, curators, and scholars who take as their subject the rise of modernism in the United States, and the critical role played therein by the Museum of Modern Art, will find this collection to be an essential trove of primary source material. The new material added to the collection through the reprocessing project may also open new avenues of research into the history of the Museum, its founding director, and the history of modern art in America.

The collection provides access to the research material Barr drew upon in producing original scholarship, which included notable publications such as Matisse: His Art and His Public as well as exhibitions such as Fantastic Art, Dada, Surrealism [MoMA Exh. #55, December 7, 1936-January 17, 1937]. Also documented in the collection is the vast network of artists, art historians, critics, curators, gallerists, and Museum administrators Barr interacted with over the course of his forty-year long career. Key figures associated with Barr who are well represented in the collection include: Jere Abbott, James Thrall Soby, Dorothy Miller, A. Conger Goodyear, Monroe Wheeler, René d'Harnoncourt, Agnes Mongan, Henri Matisse, Constantin Brâncusi, among others.

Nowhere are these relationships better represented than in the largest series in the collection, Series I: Correspondence, which is comprised of close to 850 folders and is divided into three subseries. The thousands of letters found in Subseries I.A: General Correspondence primarily document Museum operations, both curatorial and administrative, from the institution's founding in 1929 through Barr's retirement in 1967. Notable correspondents identified in this series include: Abby Aldrich Rockefeller, Paul J. Sachs, Philip Johnson, Margaret Scolari Barr, William A.M. Burden, Meyer Schapiro, Giacomo Balla, Kurt Schwitters, Amédée Ozenfant, and Sonia Delaunay. In addition to correspondence and memos, Subseries I.A also contains a large amount of newspaper clippings and photographs, and as such some of the files operate like subject or artist files rather than traditional correspondence files. Additional materials included in files are noted in the file descriptions. Subseries I.B: Professional Correspondence from the Margaret Scolari Barr Papers were given to MoMA Archives with the personal papers of Alfred H. Barr, Jr.'s wife, Margaret Scolari Barr. They were added to the collection in 2016 and for this reason they remain their own distinct subseries. Important files in Subseries I.B include those that document Barr's salary and position as director (I.B.16) and letters of congratulations after his appointment to this position (I.B.17). These materials are significant not only because they confirm crucial details about Barr's role in the development of MoMA, but also because they shed some light on the exciting, revolutionary, and at times precarious climate that defined the Museum's early years. Subseries I.B is arranged alphabetically. Subseries I.C: Personal Correspondence contains, as the title suggests, personal letters. Many of these predate Barr's time at MoMA; letters to and from his parents and his brother, Andrew Barr, comprise a majority of the subseries. Letters with his wife, Margaret Scolari Barr, and other close friends are also present. These important correspondence that relate to Barr's biography and help to present a fuller picture of Barr as a son, a brother, a husband, and a father. Subseries I.C is arranged alphabetically.

Series II: Museum Matters is divided into four subseries. Many of these subseries reflect distinct folder runs from the initial Barr collection. However, they have now been unified in a single series pertaining to MoMA's business operations. Subseries II.A includes administrative files, press releases, and clippings. Researchers interested in MoMA's bureaucratic and operational workings, especially during the Museum's early years, will find this subseries of interest and use. The art press' reactions-both positive and negative-to MoMA and its programming over the years is also well documented in newspaper clippings found in Subseries II.A. Subseries II.B: From Alfred H. Barr, Jr.'s Personal Desk is a very important subseries in the collection. It is comprised of items removed from Barr's desk at the Museum at 29 West 53rd Street. The original order of files found in the desk has been strictly maintained and quotation marks in the folder titles reflect the terminology used by Barr himself. These files are important because they offer a unique glimpse into Barr's work method. Subseries II.B is arranged alphabetically. Subseries II.C: "Chronicles," Painting and Sculpture in The Museum of Modern Art contains material, chronologically arranged, used by Barr in writing Chronology of Painting and Sculpture in The Museum of Modern Art (PASITMOMA). Important documents related to the development of MoMA's curatorial identity and permanent collection are found in this subseries. Among them are a brochure from 1929 that explains the purpose and mission of a Museum devoted to modern art (II.C.2); annual reports from 1929 to 1932 (II.C.6-II.C.8, II.C.10); and a statement titled "Present Status and Future Direction of The Museum of Modern Art," which came to define the Museum's policies after 1933 (II.C.18). Subseries II.C is arranged chronologically. Subseries II.D: Defending Modern Art is also a significant subseries, especially from an art historical perspective, as it documents through correspondence and miscellaneous printed matter the struggles that Barr and his compatriots and contemporaries faced as evangelists of modern art in the mid-twentieth century. Many documents attack MoMA and its programming, reflecting the dominant political and cultural attitudes of the country through the 1950s. Several documents in Subseries II.D highlight Barr's active defense of modern artists and their work, especially against those who accused them of being communists or inspired by communism. Subseries II.D is arranged chronologically.

Series III: Exhibitions and Catalogues contains various material related to MoMA publications and exhibitions, primarily from the 1930s through the 1960s. Among the exhibitions particularly well represented in this series are Fantastic Art, Dada, Surrealism [MoMA Exh. #55, December 7, 1936-January 17, 1937] and Twentieth Century Italian Art [MoMA Exh. #413, June 28-September 18, 1949]. Other noteworthy material present in this series relates to "Exhibition X" (also known as "For Us the Living"), a proposed exhibition conceived in response to the Nazi occupation of Paris in 1940. While the exhibition never happened, this material will nevertheless be of interest to those scholars and curators working on the complicated politics surrounding modern art during the rise of Fascism in midcentury Europe. The arrangement of this series largely reflects the order of the original collection; however, several folders formerly contained in the Photographic Archive have been integrated. Most other accretions and transfers from the Margaret Scolari Barr Papers have been added to the end of the series. Researchers should refer to folder notes for provenance details. The series is primarily arranged in reverse chronological order.

Series IV: Writings works in tandem with that material found in Series III: Exhibitions and Catalogues. It is divided into two subseries. Subseries IV.A is devoted to Barr's contribution to Penquin's Modern Painters Series, which included texts on American artists like Ben Shahn, Edward Hopper, and Stuart Davis. These files predominantly contain correspondence, research photographs, and reproductions. Subseries IV.A was arranged as a distinct series in the original collection and has remained as such during reprocessing. It is arranged in reverse chronological order. Subseries IV.B: Other Publications is a very important subseries in the collection. Many types of writings, spanning Barr's long career, are included in this series-from travel notes from the 1920s to articles in published in popular periodicals during the Cold War. As such, the subseries reflects Barr's prolific work as a writer and provides a lens on the evolution of his thinking on modern art in America. Noteworthy files in Subseries IV.B include those related to Barr's contributions to The Hound & Horn, the avant-garde literary magazine founded by Lincoln Kirstein and Varian Fry while at Harvard University in 1927 (IV.B.111 & IV.B.112); and research materials related to Barr's important didactic text, What is Modern Painting? Subseries IV.B contains collection accretions as well as materials transferred from the Margaret Scolari Barr Papers. It is arranged in reverse chronological order.

Series V: Lectures, Speeches, and Eulogies is comprised of nearly seventy files of research material and typescripts that pertain to Barr's public speaking engagements. Lecture and speech topics range in subject-from Pablo Picasso (V.2-V.4) to "Art Under Totalitarian Governments" (V.30). Yet, the most important files contained within this series are arguably those related to his "Dogma and Practice in Modern Art" lectures, which Barr delivered in 1946 at Bryn Mawr College as part of the Mary Flexner Lecture Series (V.32-V.46). These files contain documents including research notes, diagrams, typescripts, posters and announcements. Also contained in Series V is a eulogy typescript and memorial service excerpts for Lyonel Feininger (V.47) and Piet Mondrian (V.1) respectively. Some files from the Margaret Scolari Barr Papers have been integrated into the series, but the arrangement largely reflects that of the original collection. Again, researchers should refer to specific file descriptions for provenance information. Series V is arranged in reverse chronological order.

Series VI: Subject Interest and Research Files is divided into four subseries. Subseries VI.A: Personal Desk is comprised of important research files that Barr kept at in his office. They are arranged alphabetically and their order reflects how MoMA staff found them in 1978. Original folder titles have also been maintained. Many files pertain to specific artists such as Pierre Bonnard (VI.A.13), Marc Chagall (VI.A.20), Salvador Dalí (VI.A.21), and David Alfaro Siqueiros (VI.A.84), while others reflect subject interests that were important to Barr throughout his career. Notable subjects include: German Expressionism (VI.A.29), Nationalism (VI.A.58), Post-Impressionism (VI.A.69), and Surrealism and Dada (VI.A.87 and VI.A.88). Another essential file in Subseries VI.A is that titled "Barr's Ism Dictionary" (VI.A.38). This file includes significant art historical material such as charts as well as Barr's own handwritten glossary of significant movements and terms (what he called "isms", i.e. romanticism, expressionism, etc.). The documents found in this file are noteworthy and will be of use to many researchers and scholars as they elucidate Barr's working method-namely his linear conceptualization of the development of artistic movements and styles over time. Subseries VI.B: General Subject and Artist Files contains some materials from the original Barr collection, but it is largely comprised of collection accretions and materials transferred from the Margaret Scolari Barr Papers in 2016. Subseries VI.B predominantly contains notes on artists and press clippings on said artists and their related movements. Subseries VI.C: Northern European Art contains material on the subject from Barr's time as a student at Princeton through the early years of his career. Files VI.C.1 through VI.C.5* contain several handwritten charts that trace the progression and currents that defined Northern Renaissance Art (these charts date from 1923 to 1927). While these files may not pertain to modern art directly they are nevertheless of the utmost significance in that they can be considered the prototypes for Barr's famous charts on Cubism and abstract art that followed over a decade later and therefore reveal something of Barr's working method over time. Subseries VI.D: Printed Matter - Books contains books-many with inscriptions-that were transferred to MoMA library 1985. Also included are several files that contain photocopies of title pages from books that Alfred and Margaret Scolari Barr had in their personal library. The texts and title pages represented in this subseries provide researchers with a holistic view of the Barr library and as such offer a glimpse into the varied sources that informed his scholarly and curatorial practices. Subseries VI.D is arranged chronologically.

Series VII: Abstract Art, Cubism, and Futurism is divided into three subseries. Subseries VII.A: General Interest Files replicates a distinct subseries found in the original collection. Folders are predominately arranged according to artist or subject, and folder titles range from the general to the specific-for example, from "Architecture" (VII.A.3) to "Synchronism" (VII.A.35). File contents vary in their scope and include correspondence, clippings, photographs, notes, exhibition announcements, and catalogues. Subseries VII.A is arranged alphabetically. Subseries VII.B: Cubism and Abstract Art encompasses publication and research material related to the groundbreaking exhibition and catalogue of the same name. It comprises correspondence, handwritten notes, page proofs, and a catalogue typescript. Of particular significance is folder VII.B.5, which contains the original catalogue jacket that reproduced Barr's famous flow chart. While the history of this exhibition has been widely examined by historians and curators the material found in Subseries VII.B nevertheless remains essential-not only because it marks a high point in Barr's career, but also because Cubism and Abstract Art is central to MoMA's history as an institution devoted to presenting modern and abstract art to the Museum-going public. Researchers may note that Subseries VII.B may pertain more appropriately to that material covered in Series III: Exhibitions and Catalogues; however, it remains here in order to better reflect the order of the original collection. Subseries VII.B is arranged in reverse chronological order. Subseries VII.C: Italian Futurism is a small subseries that contains correspondence with important figures from the avant-garde movement, such as Benedetta Marinetti and Giacomo Balla. Also included in this subseries is publication documentation pertaining to Barr's contribution to the catalogue for Twentieth Century Italian Art [MoMA Exh. #413, June 28-September 18, 1949]. Subseries VII.C is arranged neither alphabetically nor chronologically, but reflects the collection's original arrangement.

Series VIII: Feininger Material is a small series that has been divided into two subseries: Subseries VIII.A: Lyonel Feininger and Subseries VIII.B: Lux Feininger. Subseries VIII.A contains a typescript of the eulogy that Barr delivered at Lyonel Feininger's funeral, as well as autobiographical writings by Feininger. Both series are arranged in reverse chronological order.

Series IX: Russian Matters is comprised of five subseries all of which reflect Barr's lifelong interest in the art and culture of Russia. Subseries IX.A: Correspondence is loosely arranged in reverse chronological order. Subseries IX.B: Publications contains dozens of folders marked as "Russian Pamphlets, Books, Catalogues, and Guides" (IX.B.3-IX.B.63). Barr amassed this collection between the years 1927 and 1929, with the majority of the publications having been collected during his 1927 trip to the former Soviet Union. Researchers should note that nearly all the included publications are in Russian. Also included in this series are twelve folders of Russian children's books as well as publication material pertaining to Barr's essay on Russian icons published in The Arts in February 1931. Also included in Subseries IX.B are four issues of VOKS Bulletin (IX.B.149)-a periodical that aimed to promote international cultural contact between Soviet writers, artists, musicians, and critics and their Western counterparts-as well as at least two copies of News from Behind the Iron Curtain (IX.B.150-IX.B.151), a Cold War publication that reported on life in the Soviet Union. Both of these publications are considered by historians to be works of propaganda and as such they are important cultural artifacts that speak to the fluctuating and at times tenuous relationship political relationship between the United States and Europe. Furthermore, in addition to displaying Barr's deep curiosity about all things Russian, the diversity of publications and related ephemera contained in Subseries IX.B may also be of use to those scholars and researchers who are concerned with the cultural production of Russia and the former Soviet Union more generally. The order of Subseries IX.B reflects that of the original collection and is neither entirely alphabetical nor chronological. Subseries IX.C: "Soviet Exhibition" contains correspondence, photographic reproductions of Russian works of art, and exhibition lists for an exhibition that was never realized. However, the Museum did loan Edward Steichen's Family of Man to the American National Exhibition in Moscow in 1959. Subseries IX.C is loosely arranged in reverse chronological order. Subseries IX.D: Clippings and Ephemera represents a distinct series from the original collection with accretions added to the end. Folders are arranged by subject, with titles such as "Art," "Film," "Design & Fashion." Subseries IX.D further underscores the way Barr kept his finger on the pulse of cultural output in Russia throughout his life. It is arranged in reverse chronological order. Subseries IX.E: Miscellaneous largely reflects a subseries from the original collection with some transfers from the Margaret Scolari Barr Papers. Noteworthy material found in this series include pressed leaves from today's St. Petersburg (IX.E.9-IX.E.10); photographs of the illustrator Orest Vereisky (IX.E.8); Barr's notes on Russian theater (IX.E.11); and an original copy of "Mass Movies," by Sergei Eisenstein, published in The Nation on November 9, 1927 (IX.E.16).

Series X: Henri Matisse is divided into five subseries. While the arrangement of this series largely reflects folder runs found in the original collection there are a few integrations added from the Photographic Archive included. The processing archivist also performed minimal series reorganization, in the interest of enhancing researcher ease-of-use and discoverability. Subseries X.A through Subseries X.C pertains to Barr's influential 1951 publication Henri Matisse: His Art and His Public. The text remains an essential one, as it marks the first full-scale monograph on Matisse published in English. Henri Matisse was widely celebrated for offering readers both a biographical study of the artist as well as a comprehensive visual analysis of his oeuvre. Subseries X.A: Henri Matisse: His Art and His Public: Correspondence includes letters with noteworthy correspondents, including Clive Bell, Bernard Berenson, Albert Landsberg, Grete Moll, Hans Purrman, Edward Steichen, Nelson A. Rockefeller; as well as the Matisse family, including Henri and his son Pierre. Although most correspondence is in English, researchers should note that there are also letters in French and German present. Subseries X.A is arranged loosely alphabetically. Series X.B: Henri Matisse: His Art and His Public: Research, Notes, and Photographs is comprised of a substantial amount of pre-publication material. Some of the most significant files contained within this subseries are those folders titled "Artist's Questionnaire" (X.B.2-XI.B.9). The documents contained within these files pertain to a series of questions mailed to and completed by Matisse (as well as by those close to him), the responses to which served as the core of much of Barr's text. These unique documents are an invaluable resource for researchers because they provide important insights on Matisse's life and work, in the artist's own words. Also included in Subseries X.B are notes, photographs, and additional correspondence. Subseries X.C Henri Matisse: His Art and His Public: Post-Publication Material is primarily composed of correspondence, reviews, and press clippings that were either published in the art press or sent to Barr personally after the publication of Henri Matisse. A substantial amount of printed matter collected by Barr and pertaining to the life and career of Matisse is also present, including obituary clippings following the death of the artist (X.C.26-X.C.28). Subseries X.C is arranged loosely in reverse chronological order and reflects the original collection. Subseries X.D: Other Publications and Related Material contains secondary source material on the life and work of Matisse. Subseries X.E: Henri Matisse [MoMA Exh. #492, November 13, 1951-January 13, 1952] contains just three files and includes press releases, correspondence, and a transcript of remarks delivered by Barr at the exhibition opening. It is arranged chronologically.

Series XI: Pablo Picasso is one of the largest series in the Alfred H. Barr, Jr. Papers and is divided into ten subseries. While some runs of folders have been merged together under new and improved subseries titles, their original order remains largely unchanged. Subseries XI.A: Catalogues is comprised of nine files, each of which contains various exhibition catalogues related to the work of Picasso. Many of the catalogues are annotated in Barr's hand and as such shed light on the portions of Picasso's work that were of greatest interest to Barr. As a result, the catalogues and the accompanying notes contained within this subseries will be useful to those researchers and scholars concerned with the historiography of modern art in general and with Picasso studies in particular. Subseries XI.B: Correspondence and Research Materials contains several files dedicated to Picasso's controversial anti-war mural Guernica (1937), which was on loan to MoMA until 1981 (XI.B.10-XI.B.16). File XI.B.22 titled The Sculpture of Picasso [MoMA Exh. #841, October 11, 1967-January 1, 1968] is also significant largely due to the fact that its contents-which include translations and catalogue drafts-reveal the collaborative relationship that existed between Barr and his wife, the art historian Margaret Scolari Barr. Barr notoriously struggled with foreign languages; but Scolari Barr was multilingual, and so she often served as an interpreter and intermediary between Barr and European artists during exhibition preparation. Subseries XI.C: Materials for an Unpublished Monograph contains research materials for what Barr designated as his "Picasso Book." Most files have nonspecific titles such as "Correspondence and Printed Matter" or "Photographs," but important materials can nevertheless be identified; these include notes by Barr and Scolari Barr after their visits with Pablo Picasso and Marie Cuttoli in 1952 (XI.C.25) and nine photographs of the Spanish Pavilion at the Paris Expo in 1937 taken by James Thrall Soby (XI.C.32). Both of these files are important in that they speak to the cross-continental relationships that Barr and his colleagues fostered and reveal how those relationships helped to fuel much of MoMA's programming during the twentieth century.

Subseries XI.D: Picasso in the Museum of Modern Art: 80th Birthday Exhibition [MoMA Exh. #705, May 14-September 18, 1962] is a small subseries comprised of just six files that contain an array of material including memos, notes, catalogue drafts, and exhibition labels. It is arranged in reverse chronological order. Subseries XI.E: Picasso 75th Anniversary Exhibition [MoMA Exh. #619, May 4, 1957-August 25, 1957; May 22, 1957-September 8, 1957] includes material related to the important retrospective of the same name. Picasso 75th Anniversary Exhibition was a record-breaking exhibition, as more than 100,000 visitors came to MoMA to see the show in its first month alone. Subseries XI.E mostly contains materials that are typical of exhibition research files, such as correspondence, lists of lenders, travel documentation and expenses, and photographs. However, non-typical material is also present in this subseries-most notably three paper neckties designed and decorated by Picasso, which were sent to Barr at the time of the exhibition (XI.E.1*). Subseries XI.E is arranged by subject or type of material, with some accretions added to the end. Subseries XI.F: "Picasso 60" contains research materials for an exhibition and catalogue that never came to fruition. It is arranged in reverse chronological order. Subseries XI.G: Picasso: Fifty Years of His Art contains documents and ephemera related to Barr's important publication of the same name. The book was an expanded version of the catalogue published six years earlier in conjunction with the exhibition Picasso: Forty Years of His Art (MoMA Exh. #91, November 15, 1939-January 7, 1940). The publication of this important monograph marks a momentous occasion in Barr's career because it earned him his Ph.D. from Harvard University. Included in Subseries XI.G are correspondence, artist questionnaires, and notes. It is largely arranged chronologically and includes additions from the Photographic Archive. Subseries XI.H: MoMA Bulletin contains an essay typescript, correspondence, and photographs. It is arranged in reverse chronological order. Subseries XI.I: Picasso: Forty Years of His Art (MoMA Exh. #91, November 15, 1939-January 7, 1940) includes exhibition material-correspondence, an annotated catalogue, and a list of lenders-for the first retrospective of Picasso's work in the United States. The show was organized in collaboration with The Art Institute of Chicago. Subseries XI.J: Exhibition Proposed is a useful subseries in that it reveals that Barr began conceiving of a Picasso exhibition at MoMA as early as 1931, just three years after the Museum's founding. When the entirety of Series XI is examined as a whole it is apparent that Barr worked assiduously throughout his career to bring the work of Picasso to the American public. He was far and away one of the artist's biggest champions in the United States and that is made apparent by the material contained within this series.

Series XII: Honors, Awards, and Tributes is separated into three subseries: Subseries XII.A: Certificates, Subseries XIII.B: Honors (Plaques & Medals), and Subseries XII.C: Birthday and Retirement Tributes. These files include honorary degrees from Yale University, Columbia University, and the University of Buffalo as well as awards from the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, the Skowhegan School of Painting & Sculpture (the Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney Award), and the French Government (the Chevalier of the Legion of Honor). All of the materials contained within this series-from the European honors to the retirement tributes-display how deeply Barr's colleagues and contemporaries respected him during his own lifetime. Each series is arranged in chronological order.

Series XIII: Notebooks contains fifty-three folders. Various kinds of notebooks are distinguishable in this series, including address books (XIII.1-XIII.9), travel notebooks (XIII.10-XIII.39), daily calendars and agendas (XIII.41-XIII.48), and diaries (XIII.49-XIII.52). All of the items contained within Series XIII should be treated as important primary source documents, most of which offer an intimate view into how Barr organized his life. The address books and travel notebooks are of particular importance because they reveal the vast international network of artists, curators, dealers, and critics with whom Barr worked closely over the course of his long career. Calendars and agendas are illustrative of the day-to-day activities that governed Barr's time, both personal and professional. The series is arranged by type of notebook and includes some transfers from the Margaret Scolari Barr Papers and some additional accretions, which are noted in the folder descriptions.

Series XIV: Outside Activities is divided into four subseries that represent Barr's involvement in extracurricular activities, unconnected to MoMA. Subseries XIV.A: Foundation for the Arts, Religion, and Culture (ARC) contains primarily correspondence as well as other documents that shed light on Barr's lifelong interest in the relationship between religion and art. According to its "Certificate of Incorporation" (XIV.A.11) the purpose of the ARC was "to initiate and foster collaboration between religion and the arts in contemporary life." Barr served as president of the foundation from its inception in 1962 through 1965 and he continued to support its activities until 1973. Subseries XIV.A is arranged in reverse chronological order. Subseries XIV.B: Harvard Board of Overseers primarily contains administrative material pertaining to Barr's position on the Board of Overseers from 1964-1970. The Board is one of two governing bodies at the University and its membership is comprised entirely of alumni. A file list did not exist in the original collection, but one was created during the 2016 reprocessing project. Subseries XIV.B contains reports and correspondence as well as documentation relating to the Visiting Committee at Harvard's Fogg Museum. It is arranged in reverse chronological order. Subseries XIV.C: Emergency Rescue Committee is a small but important subseries in the collection. It is primarily composed of Western Union telegrams regarding the procurement of affidavits of support and sponsorship for European artists seeking asylum in the United States during World War II. Barr and the Museum were affiliated with these activities, but the largest burden of the work fell on outside individuals such as Varian Fry and Margaret Scolari Barr. Subseries XIV.C is arranged chronologically and includes transfers from the Margaret Scolari Barr Papers. Subseries XIV.D is comprised entirely of letters of recommendations. Given the sensitive nature of its contents, this subseries is restricted.

Series XV: takes as its subject Nelson A. Rockefeller and his relationship with Barr with respect to Museum operations. Rockefeller served as a trustee of MoMA from 1932 to 1979. He served as treasurer from 1937 to 1939, and as president from 1939 to 1941 and again from 1946 to 1953. Following in the footsteps of his mother, Abby Aldrich, Nelson Rockefeller was a noted collector and patron of modern art and committed to the success of MoMA. Series XV is divided into three subseries. Subseries XV.A is comprised almost entirely of letters between Barr and Rockefeller between 1947 and 1971. Subseries XV.B: Windows at Union Church at Pocantico Hills, NY contains only one file of plans, photographs, and correspondence pertaining to the stained glass windows designed by Marc Chagall and Henry Matissse at the Rockefeller chapel. Subseries XV.C: New York State Council on the Arts contains one file.

Series XVI: Biographical and Personal Material is divided into five subseries and contains a substantial amount of material transferred from the Margaret Scolari Barr Papers in 2016. As the title suggests, Subseries XVI.A: Early and Family Life contains documents and ephemera related to Barr's life as a child growing up in Baltimore. The material included in this series conveys the close family relationships Barr maintained throughout his life, both with his parents and siblings as well as with his wife Margaret and their daughter Victoria. Subseries XVI.A includes a copy of Barr's birth certificate (XVI.A.2), numerous family photographs (XVI.A.7-XVI.9), and three files of clippings collected by his father, Alfred H. Barr, Sr., pertaining to Alfred Jr.'s professional successes over the years (XVI.A.5-XVI.A.7). Subseries XVI.B: Education: Boys' Latin School, Princeton University, and Harvard University encompasses material from Barr's high school years through his time enrolled as a graduate student in art history at Princeton and Harvard. Notable items contained in Subseries XVI.B include Barr's high school valedictory address (XVI.B.1), a notification of his passing his Ph.D. oral exams at Harvard University (XVI.B.6) and his Carnegie Foundation grant application, which Barr applied for in order "to gather material for a thesis on 'The Machine in Modern Art' to be offered in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the degree of Ph.D. at Harvard University" (XVI.B.21). All of this material is noteworthy not only because it helps to flesh out Barr's personal biography, but also because it illustrates how Barr's educational trajectory helped lead to his appointment as director of MoMA in 1929. While much of the material contained within Subseries XVI.C: Teaching: Vassar College, Wellesley College, and Harvard University is focused on the art of the Italian Renaissance, this subseries also contains some very important material that demonstrates Barr's early thinking on and engagement with modern art. This is evident in many of the files labeled "Course Notes" (XVI.C.12-XVI.C.24), as well as in the flyer for Barr's "A Course of Five Lectures on Modern Art" (XVI.C.8). Additionally, those researchers concerned with the history of education and art historical pedagogy will likely find these records of value. Subseries XVI.C is arranged chronologically. Subseries XVI.D: Personal and Hobbies helps to paint a fuller picture of Barr a person, as it includes material related to his love of ornithology, a butterfly notebook, as well as a collection of cigar bands. It is arranged chronologically. Subseries XVI.E: Death and Posthumous material contains just eleven files. They contain tribute materials, cemetery remarks, obituaries, and dozens of condolence letters sent to the Barr family after his death in 1981. Subseries XVI.E is arranged chronologically.

Series XVII: "A Bibliography of Published Writings by Alfred H. Barr, Jr." (Complied by Rona Roob) represents work undertaken by former MoMA archivist Rona Roob for the publication Defining Modern Art: Selected Writings of Alfred H. Barr, Jr. (edited by Irving Sandler and Amy Newman, 1986). While most documents contained within this series are photocopies, some original materials are included, such as two original pamphlets advertising "A Course of Five Lectures on Modern Art by Alfred H. Barr, Jr." at Wellesley College (XVII.1) and one original copy of "An Effort to Secure $3,250,000 for the Museum of Modern Art New York City" (XVII.2). While this does not represent a set of records created by Barr himself-nor is it a complete bibliography of Barr's written works-it is nevertheless a useful resource for scholars and researchers.

Related Collections at MoMA and Elsewhere

Within MoMA Archives related material can be found in the Margaret Scolari Barr Papers, the James Thrall Soby Papers, the René d'Harnoncourt Papers, the Philip Johnson Papers, the Dorothy C. Miller Papers and The Museum of Modern Art Exhibition Records. Because of Barr’s unique and paramount position in the Museum’s history, materials concerning his activities can be found in numerous additional collections.

The Archives of American Art possess microfilm of much of the Barr papers, particularly the correspondence series, as well as numerous major related collections.


Administrative Information

Provenance

Most of the materials contained within the Alfred H. Barr, Jr. Papers came from either Barr’s office at MoMA or his Manhattan apartment and were given to MoMA Archives by his wife, Margaret Scolari Barr. MoMA Archivist, Rona Roob, originally processed the collection between the years 1983 and 1984. However, in subsequent years, the Archives acquired a substantial amount of additional material from various sources as well as transfers from the Margaret Scolari Barr Papers. This “new” material—measuring approximately 22 linear feet contained in 33 boxes—required processing, description, and integration into the collection in a logical and coherent manner before it could be made available to researchers. The integration project was completed in 2016. Researchers will note that any additions to the collection have been marked as such in their appropriate individual folder notes.

Preferred Citation

Published citations should take the following forms:

Long version: Alfred H. Barr, Jr. Papers, [series.folder]. The Museum of Modern Art Archives, New York.

Short verision: AHB, [series.folder]. MoMA Archives, NY.

Processing Note

The bulk of the collection is in good condition. All materials have been rehoused in archival folders and, depending on the level of paper degradation, newspaper clippings, photographs, and other fragile documents have been encapsulated in polyester sleeves or placed between archival buffered paper to stave off any future discoloration of neighboring records.


Container List

Series I: Correspondence 1913-1989

This series is the largest series in the collection and is comprised of close to 850 folders. It is divided into three subseries. This correspondence reveals Barr's close relationships with key figures such as: Jere Abbott, James Thrall Soby, Dorothy Miller, A. Conger Goodyear, Monroe Wheeler, René d'Harnoncourt, Agnes Mongan, Henri Matisse, Constantin Brancusi, among others. They also speak to MoMA's development and operations during the mid-twentieth century.

Subseries I.A: General Correspondence 1927-1985

The thousands of letters found in Subseries I.A primarily document Museum operations, both curatorial and administrative, from the institution's founding in 1929 through Barr's retirement in 1967. Notable correspondents identified in this series include: Abby Aldrich Rockefeller, Paul J. Sachs, Philip Johnson, Margaret Scolari Barr, William A.M. Burden, Meyer Schapiro, Giacomo Balla, Kurt Schwitters, Amédée Ozenfant, and Sonia Delaunay. In addition to correspondence and memos, Subseries I.A also contains a large amount of newspaper clippings and photographs, and as such some of the files operate like subject or artist files rather than traditional correspondence files. The subseries reflects the collections original arrangement, which is both chronological and alphabetical.

Series II: Museum Matters 1918-1980

Series II is divided into four subseries. Many of these subseries reflect distinct folder runs from the initial Barr collection. However, they have now been unified in a single series pertaining to MoMA's business operations.

Subseries II.A: Administrative Files, Press Releases, and Press Clippings 1918-1989

Subseries II.A includes administrative files, press releases, and clippings. Researchers interested in MoMA's organizational and operational workings especially during the Museum's early years, will find this subseries of interest and use. The subseries additionally includes fund raising documentation, press releases, and other internal reports. The art press' reactions-both positive and negative-to MoMA and its programming over the years is also well documented in newspaper clippings found here. The subseries' arrangement reflects that of the collection's original processing in 1983-1984.

Subseries II.D: Defending Modern Art 1940-1970

Through a compilation of correspondence and miscellaneous printed matter, Subseries II.D documents the struggles that Alfred H. Barr, Jr. and his compatriots and contemporaries faced as evangelists of modern art in the mid-twentieth century. Many documents found in this subseries (particularly press clippings) attack MoMA and its programming, reflecting the dominant political and cultural attitudes of the country through the 1950s. Several documents in the subseries also emphasize Barr's active defense of modern artists and their work, especially against those who accused them of being communists or inspired by communism. This subseries is arranged chronologically.

Series III: Exhibitions and Catalogues 1934-1986

Series III contains various material related to MoMA publications and exhibitions, primarily from the 1930s through the 1960s. Among the exhibitions particularly well represented in this series are Fantastic Art, Dada, Surrealism [MoMA Exh. #55, December 7, 1936-January 17, 1937] and Twentieth Century Italian Art [MoMA Exh. #413, June 28-September 18, 1949]. Other noteworthy material present in this series relates to "Exhibition X" (also known as "For Us the Living"), a proposed exhibition conceived in response to the Nazi occupation of Paris in 1940. The reverse chronological arrangement of this series largely reflects the order of the original collection; however, several folders formerly contained in the Photographic Archive have been integrated. Most other accretions and transfers from the Margaret Scolari Barr Papers have been added to the end of the series. Again, researchers should refer to folder notes for provenance details.

Series V: Lectures, Speeches, and Eulogies 1924-1969

Series V: Lectures, Speeches, and Eulogies comprises nearly seventy files of research material and typescripts that pertain to Barr's public speaking engagements. The most important files contained within this series are arguably those related to his "Dogma and Practice in Modern Art" lectures, which Barr delivered in 1946 at Bryn Mawr College as part of the Mary Flexner Lecture Series (V.32-V.46). These files contain documents including research notes, diagrams, typescripts, posters and announcements. Also contained in Series V is a eulogy typescript for artist Lyonel Feininger (V.47). Some files from the Margaret Scolari Barr Papers have been integrated into the series, but the arrangement largely reflects that of the original collection. Series V is arranged in reverse chronological order.

Series VI: Subject Interest and Research Files 1920-1978

Series VI is divided into four subseries that pertain to Barr's scholarly work and interests over the course of his career.

Subseries VI.A: From Alfred H. Barr, Jr.'s Personal Desk 1920-1973

Subseries VI.A is composed of important research files that Barr kept in his office. They are arranged alphabetically and their order reflects how MoMA staff found them in 1978. Original folder titles have also been maintained. Many files pertain to specific artists such as Pierre Bonnard (VI.A.13), Marc Chagall (VI.A.20), Salvador Dalí (VI.A.21), and David Alfaro Siqueiros (VI.A.84), while others reflect subject interests that were important to Barr throughout his career. Notable subjects include: German Expressionism (VI.A.29), Nationalism (VI.A.58), Post-Impressionism (VI.A.69), and Surrealism and Dada (VI.A.87 and VI.A.88). Another essential file in Subseries VI.A is that titled "Barr's Ism Dictionary" (VI.A.38). This file includes significant art historical material such as charts as well as Barr's own handwritten glossary of significant movements and terms (what he called "isms", i.e. romanticism, expressionism, etc.).

Subseries VI.C: Northern European Art 1920-1944

Subseries VI.C contains material on the subject from Barr's time as a student at Princeton through the early years of his career. Files VI.C.1 - VI.C.5* contain several handwritten charts, which trace the progression and currents that defined Northern Renaissance Art (these charts date from 1923 to 1927). These charts can be considered prototypes for Barr's famous charts on Cubism and abstract art that followed over a decade later. Subseries VI.C is arranged chronologically.

Subseries VII.B: Cubism and Abstract Art 1933-1958

Subseries VII.B encompasses publication and research material related to the groundbreaking exhibition and catalogue, Cubism and Abstract Art. It contains correspondence, handwritten notes, page proofs, and a catalogue typescript.

Cubism and Abstract Art is central to MoMA's history as an institution devoted to presenting modern and abstract art to the Museum-going public.

Subseries IX.B: Publications 1925-1976

Subseries IX.B contains dozens of folders marked as "Russian Pamphlets, Books, Catalogues, and Guides" (IX.B.3-IX.B.63). Barr amassed this collection between the years 1927 and 1929, with the majority of the publications having been collected during his 1927 trip to the former Soviet Union. Researchers should note that nearly all the included publications are in Russian. Also included in Subseries IX.B are four issues of VOKS Bulletin (IX.B.149)-a periodical that aimed to promote international cultural contact between Soviet writers, artists, musicians, and critics and their Western counterparts-as well as at least two copies of News from Behind the Iron Curtain (IX.B.150-IX.B.151), a Cold War publication that reported on life in the Soviet Union. In addition to displaying Barr's deep curiosity about all things Russian, the diversity of publications and related ephemera contained in Subseries IX.B may also be of use to those scholars and researchers who are concerned with the cultural production of Russia and the former Soviet Union more generally. The order of Subseries IX.B reflects that of the original collection and is neither entirely alphabetical nor chronological.
