Hans Eckstein research files, 1897-1984 (bulk 1920-1984).


Hans Eckstein research files, 1897-1984 (bulk 1920-1984).

The Hans Eckstein research files contain correspondence (ca. 1,108 letters), mostly letters received, and typescript copies of essays and lectures. Eckstein's correspondents share his interest in architectural history, the development and ideology of the Neue Bauen and modern European art and design. The essays and lectures are arranged in four subseries: biographical articles about artists, architects, philosophers and collectors; manuscripts regarding art under the Third Reich, with essays about the place of art and exhibitions in the political arena; reviews and critiques of exhibitions, books, art and architectural projects. One partial manuscript comprises writings and letters transcribed from others, including from the letters of Théodore Rousseau to Charles Blanc and Alfred Sensier, a letter from Adolph Menzel to Otto Greiner, a letter from Joshua Reynolds to Borry, and two letters from Max Liebermann to Wilhelm Bode. Eckstein's lectures and articles cover the history of the Deutscher Werkbund (primarily during the 1950s) and the Neue Bauen with a broad range of essays on architecture. Also included is documentation about Nicholas Roerich (Nikolai Konstantinovich Rerikh) and the founding of the Nicholas Roerich Museum in New York, ca. 1929-1931; photographs of African art from the Han Coray Collection; and a separate file of 28 transcribed letters written by Max Liebermann between 1897-1934.
