Scope and Content

The collection consists of correspondence, manuscripts, and an enormous number of notecards (that were collected over a twenty-year period for a proposed "Slovar ́russkikh khudozhnikov") and several dozen notebooks containing entries to which the cards refer. Among the correspondent5s is Eugene Fabergʹe, whose letters contain information about the Fabergʹe dynasty of jewelers. Sakharov's manuscripts include essays to Ivan Bilibin, M.V. Rudalt︠́s︡ov, Marie Bashkirt︠s︡ev, Nikolaĭ Globa and V.E. Borisov-Musatov. The cards containing information on artists are arranged alphabetically by artist and contain references to specific notebook entries. There are also bibliographic cards containing citations of articles on art in Russian and other languages. These are arranged by author. The notebooks are largely devoted to a particular artist or genre; others are designated by color and number, letter, number or not titled at all. There are also two sets of large notebooks which seem to belong to another series. There are a few photographs of artists (notably a 1939 photograph of Globa) and photographic reproductions of works by Bakst and Lukin among others. The collection contains approximately 11 exhibition catalogues dating from 1915 to 1940 and primarily relating to the exhibitions of Russian emigre artists in Paris. There are also 4 issues of "Illi︠u︡strirovannai︠a︡ Rossii︠a︡" and some clippings dealing with Russian emigre artists.
