Description

Summary

Working files of Wittkower, dealing with Baroque and Renaissance painting, sculpture, and architecture. Included are manuscripts, notes, drawings, annotated proofs of articles and books, and some correspondence related to his writings and lectures. The majority of the files document his teaching, research, and writing at the University of London, 1934-1955, and at Columbia University. There are also some manuscript notes from his early years in Italy and Germany. Series I has been divided into six parts: Artists, Subjects, Book Manuscripts, Proofs, Notes, and Printed Materials. Some of the major files are Bernini, Bramante, Carracci, Michelangelo, and Raphael (Artists); Baroque Painting, Patronage, Rome, St. Peter's, Slade Lectures on the history of art (Subjects); ART AND ARCHITECTURE IN ITALY, BORN UNDER SATURN, and MATTHEWS LECTURES: GOTHIC VS. CLASSIC (Book Manuscripts). In addition there are proofs of essays and reviews with manuscript corrections and emmendations, copies of several of his own published works with his manuscript corrections, and typescript insertions for new editions. The Notes consist of eight card file boxes with notes chiefly relating to the Baroque period and Bernini.

Series II consists of manuscripts, typescripts, notes, galleys, and corrected page proofs of Wittkower's lectures and articles on Renaissance and Baroque sculpture and architecture, which were edited posthumously by Margot Wittkower for inclusion in SCULPTURE: PROCESS AND PRINCIPLE (1977) and THE COLLECTED ESSAYS OF RUDOLF WITTKOWER (1978).

Series III (1992 addition): The correspondence consists of invitations to give lectures, 1955-1971, including the Slade Lectures, 1970-1971; and correspondence and lectures for the "Congress on Proportion" Milan, 1951. There is the typescript for Wittkower's bibliography, LITERATURE ON GEORGIAN ARCHITECTURE (1946); a photocopy of page proofs for the German editions of his ALLEGORY AND THE MIGRATION OF SYMBOLS (1976); and entries and notes for an unpublished annotated bibliography of works on English architecture from the 16th through the 18th centuries.

Series IV (1992 addition): Lectures, notes, architectural sketches, and clippings mostly relating to Palladian architecture are in these files documenting Wittkower's research from 1950 to 1970 in various cities of North America and Europe, and his teaching in the U.S. and in Italy.
