Leo Steinberg research papers, 1945-1996 (bulk 1950-1993).

The Leo Steinberg Research Papers consist of research notes, correspondence relating to his lectures and essays, papers written by his students, several versions of some of his essays, an abandoned dissertation project, and many of his notebooks from courses he took at the Institute of Fine Arts, New York University.

Included are Steinberg's unpublished research on Borromini, his work on Rodin and Titian in the form of notes, photographs, lectures in typescript with notes; a few essays by others; his dissertation on Borromini, and professional correspondence such as with Rudolf Wittkower about Borromini. Correspondence about Steinberg's lecture series at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and elsewhere includes letters from scholars such as Gerson Cohen, Rene d'Harnoncourt, John Canaday, Margaret Scolari Barr, André Chastel, Julius Held, H.S. Janson, Irving Lavin, Annette Michelson and Phil Leider. Also, there is correspondence with art critic Hilton Kramer about Steinberg's column in the magazine Arts; articles and letters about his essay on Jasper Johns and lecture "Sexuality of Christ in Renaissance Art and in Modern Oblivion," and reviews and versions of several essays from Steinberg's book Other criteria. The Papers also contain research notes, illustrations and several chapters for his abandoned dissertation "Afterlife of Romanesque." Includes notebooks, many with photographs and illustrations, for courses Steinberg took when he attended the Institute of Fine Arts, NYU from 1950-1963.
