Julius S. Held papers, ca. 1918-1999.


Julius S. Held papers, ca. 1918-1999.

The material provides a broad and detailed study of Held's professional life, his scholarly development, and his working methods. A major portion comprises scholarly correspondence with other art historians, including numerous prominent American and European scholars as well as young colleagues and post-graduate students. Also present is professional correspondence with art dealers, auction houses, museums, and publishing firms, and private collectors. Letters by Held are particularly valuable for their frank assessments of art objects. Included is material documenting Held's research for essays, reviews and articles, his many teaching and lecturing activities, as well as his involvement as an art expert in legal cases. The archive also contains extensive travel notes. A distinct group of material details Held's role in building the collection of Museo de Arte de Ponce in Puerto Rico. A very large portion of the archive consists of study photographs and other visual documentation of artwork by Peter Paul Rubens, Anthony van Dyck, Jacob Jordaens, Rembrandt, and a vast number of other artists, mainly Dutch and Flemish from the 15th to 18th centuries.
