Harald Keller papers, 1930-1989.

Papers spanning the years 1930-1989 contain lecture and course notes, manuscripts of published and unpublished works, research and travel notes, and correspondence. The collection documents Keller's academic and scholarly career and provides a view of art history scholarship and pedagogy during a formative period in the discipline. Extensive, carefully composed and detailed course and lecture notes provide a precise record of Keller's teaching methods and illustrate his generalist approach. Topics cover painting, sculpture, architecture, and urbanism from the Early Christian and Byzantine periods through Impressionism. His scholarship and teaching are further documented in research notes and manuscripts, as well as in correspondence with other art historians. The body of letters from Richard Krautheimer is particularly significant (50 items, 1943-1989); other correspondents include: Christoph Liutpold Frommel (11 letters), Hans Sedlmayr, Ludwig H. Heydenreich, Theodor Müller, Ulrich Middeldorf, Rudolf Wittkower. Manuscripts in the collection comprise material for published and unpublished books, articles, essays, Festschriften, and memorial orations, together with notes and letters referring to these works. Topics addressed in the manuscripts include: Baroque staircases (Keller's dissertation); Renaissance landscape; Italian Gothic sculpture; urbanism in Italy, Central Europe and the Baltic countries; the history of portraiture; and history and fiction; also 27 ms. pages of an autobiography written in 1967.
