Boehm, Joseph Edgar, 1834-1890. Correspondence, 1861-1891, (bulk 1871-1891)

Correspondence, 1861-1891, (bulk 1871-1891)

More than half the collection is composed of miscellaneous letters received by Boehm between ca. 1871-1891 from leading artists of the period, including Edward Burne-Jones, William P. Frith, Alfred Gilbert, John Everett Millais, Auguste Rodin, and George F. Watts. A number of these letters refer to the work of Boehm or the correspondent, or joint projects and commissions. A second extensive series consists of letters Boehm received from Frederic, Lord Leighton, between ca. 1881-1890. Much of it relates to joint projects or discussions of the two men's work and the affairs of the Royal Academy. Included is a short series of letters sent by Boehm between 1875-1887. These letters discuss both his own work and that of others, including Rodin.
