Correspondence, 1852-1886.


Correspondence, 1852-1886.

A series of approximately one hundred and fifty letters by Moyaux to his patron Victor Delzant in Paris and his friend Alidor Delzant in Haut-Vienne, with some accompanying documents, including sketches, draft reviews, ephemera, poems, and related correspondence. The collection was evidently assembled by Alidor Delzant as a memorial. Most of it dates from Moyaux's years as a student at the Academie de Valenciennes (1852), the Ecole des Beaux-Arts (1853-1861), and the French Academy in Rome (1861-1865). The papers include extensive commentary on his architectural education, observations on the art and antiquities of Italy and Greece, occasional accounts of his own projects, and some critical discussion of recent architecture.
