Biographical/Historical Note

Duveen Brothers, notable art dealers in London, Paris, and New York from the late nineteenth century to the mid-twentieth century, brought to America high quality old master paintings and decorative arts from the great private collections in Europe. Under the guidance of Joseph Duveen (1869-1939) and assisted by art experts, most notably Bernard Berenson, the Duveen Brothers monopolized the American art market for five decades. Duveen Brothers helped to form the art collections of many extremely wealthy Americans. A number of these collections became the nuclei of U.S. museums such as the Frick Collection, the Huntington Art Collections and the National Gallery of Art.
The Duveen Brothers business began when Joseph Joel Duveen (1843-1908) and his younger brother, Henry J. Duveen (1855-1918), left their home in Meppel, Holland for Hull, England. They specialized in selling delftware from their native Holland and later branched out to include Chinese porcelain, tapestries, furniture, and old master paintings. The Duveens opened a London office in 1879; a New York office followed in 1886. In 1897 the firm closed a temporary shop located on the rue de la Paix in Paris and reopened a grander store on the Place Vendôme, later referred to as the "Little Palace." By this time Duveen Brothers was purchasing important paintings, including acquisitions from the Mulgrave Castle sale of 1890 and the Murrieta sale of 1892.
Shortly after Henry J. Duveen arrived in New York to head the office there, his brother Joseph Joel sent his son Joseph (later Sir Joseph of Millbank, also known as Joe or just Duveen) to assist his uncle Henry. By the 1880s Henry had developed a clientele of American millionaires whose wealth in those years was without precedent. Joseph became more active in the management of the New York house, took over its operations in 1907, and served as president of the firm between 1909 and 1939. One of the first changes Joseph Duveen made was to move the New York house to a more highly visible location on Fifth Avenue. He transformed the Duveen show rooms, displaying art with dramatic lighting in lavish surroundings. He made grand gestures to persuade prospective clients, as, for example, when he had an elaborate plaster model of Senator Clark's Fifth Avenue mansion constructed (at the cost of $20,000) to entice the Senator to hire Duveen Brothers to furnish it.
While in New York Joseph made a number of bold purchases on behalf of Duveen Brothers. In 1906 he acquired three large collections: the Rodolfe Kann collection, the Maurice Kann collection, and the Hainauer collection. In 1927 he bought the Robert H. Benson collection of 114 Italian paintings in England and three years later he purchased the Dreyfus collection of Italian paintings and sculpture in Paris. Joseph sold selections from the Dreyfus collection to Andrew Mellon and Samuel H. Kress; these items formed the core of the National Gallery collections in Washington, D.C. As late as 1939, the year of his death, Joseph was still selling paintings and sculpture from these purchases.
As president of Duveen Brothers, Joseph developed with a number of clients extremely close ties that went beyond influencing their art-buying habits. He arranged travel plans for his important clients, designed their table settings, and stored their preferred cigars in the Duveen Brothers' vaults. Joseph Duveen was actively involved in numerous art organizations and served as a trustee for the National Gallery, London; the Wallace Collection; and the Imperial Gallery of Art, London. He was a member of the Council of the British School at Rome and of the National Art Collections Fund. Joseph founded the British Artists Exhibitions Organization for the encouragement of lesser known British artists. He provided for additions to and extensions of London museums, such as the Tate Gallery (a new building of several galleries for modern foreign art, works by Sargent, and modern foreign sculpture), the National Gallery (a new building), the National Portrait Gallery (a new building of several galleries), London University, and the British Museum (a new building for the housing of the Elgin marbles and Nereid statues). In 1930 he wrote Thirty Years of British Art.
The Duveen Brothers' business began to decline after Joseph's death in 1939, at which time Armand Lowengard (Joseph Duveen's nephew) and Edward Fowles became joint owners of the firm. When Lowengard died in 1943, Edward Fowles assumed the presidency of Duveen Brothers. The Nazi occupation of France forced Duveen Brothers to evacuate Paris. The London office closed shortly thereafter. After the war Duveen Brothers had a number of notable clients, such as Henry Ford II and Robert Lehman, but the business never regained its former vibrancy. In 1964 Edward Fowles sold Duveen Brothers to Norton Simon, including the East 79th Street mansion and all remaining stock (excluding the business records). Edward Fowles served as a consultant to the Norton Simon Foundation and, in 1968, donated his papers and the Duveen Brothers business records to the Metropolitan Museum of Art where they were housed until 1996. In 1969 the Sterling & Francine Clark Art Institute purchased the Duveen library of books, periodicals, exhibition catalogues, and sales catalogues, along with a portion of the Duveen Brothers business records that was interfiled with the library and remains at the Clark. In 1996 the Metropolitan Museum of Art donated the Duveen archive to the Research Library at the Getty Research Institute.

Acquisition Information

Acquired from the Metropolitan Museum of Art, 1996.

Processing History

The Photography Studio of the Metropolitan Museum of Art (in particular, Arvia Higgins and Nora Kennedy) cleaned, conserved, re-housed, and indexed the Duveen negatives, 1993-ca. 1996, prior to shipping the archive to the Getty.
At the Getty Research Library, Lynn Tapia and J. Gibbs performed initial unpacking and re-housing, and made a preliminary box list, May - June 1996.
The following people processed the collection between 1996 and 2002: Julie Rosenberg, Vladimira Stefura, Teresa Morales, Jenny Vasquez, Trevor Bond, Courtney Booker, Ted Walbye, Jan Bender and J. Gibbs.
Teresa Morales arranged most of the archive and created a draft finding aid, between August 1997-July 1998.
The archive was microfilmed by the Microfilm Unit of the Southern Regional Library Facility, UCLA, between April 1999 and May 2002.
Karen Meyer-Roux edited and revised the finding aid in July and August 2014, February and March 2015.

Scope and Content of Collection

The Duveen Brothers archive,1876-1981, contains the business records for Duveen Brothers offices in New York, London, and Paris in ca. 394 linear feet (585 boxes, 18 flat file folders, ca. 2,000 negatives). It includes ledgers, sales books, stock reports, inventories, invoices, correspondence (letters and cables), manuscripts, newspaper and magazine clippings, photographs, X rays of paintings, acetate and glass plate negatives.
Also included in the archive are two related groups of records. The Edward Fowles papers, 1917-1981 (6 linear ft.), primarily date from his period in the Paris office of Duveen, but include some personal papers, particularly related to his memoir about Duveen Brothers. Kleinberger & Co., Inc. records, 1906-1971 (9 linear ft.), comprise correspondence with clients and other dealers, and include a small number of personal papers of Harry G. Sperling, president of Kleinberger Galleries.
The bulk of the Duveen records dates from Joseph Duveen's tenure as president of the firm, between 1909-1939, with relatively full coverage through Edward Fowles's tenure until 1964. The collection extensively documents the Duveen Brothers firm. The mass of detailed records, such as cables, letters, and invoices, provide a day-by-day account of art dealing, business strategy, and the individuals involved. The correspondence in particular highlights the relationships between employees of the Duveen Brothers, (e.g., Henry, Edward, and Joseph Duveen, Edward Fowles, Armand Lowengard, and Bertram Boggis) and clients, museum directors, curators, art historians, art dealers, restorers, scouts, and other consultants. The correspondence between the Duveen branches is voluminous and revealing of the strategies employed in buying and selling art. Much of the correspondence is in carbon copies with smaller amounts of original materials.
Extensive correspondence, as well as stock books, sales books, and invoices trace the movement of paintings, sculpture, and European and Asian decorative arts bought and sold through the firm. Correspondence with and about owners and collectors concerns offers, sales, and purchases, predominately of Italian and English old masters, for such clients as J.S. Bache, H.C. Frick, J.P. Morgan, H.E. Huntington, S.H. Kress, E.T. Stotesbury, and A. Mellon, to name just a few. Twelve boxes (6 lin.ft.) hold correspondence between Bernard Berenson and Duveen Brothers staff. Many letters document the correspondence with other scholars, such as Wilhelm von Bode, Max Friedländer, L. Venturi, Leo Planiscig, George Swarzenski, W.R. Valentiner, upon whom Duveen Brothers relied for expert opinions. Also included are records of lawsuits (Hahn vs. Duveen; Hamilton vs. Duveen). Nearly 2,000 negatives, ca. 100 X rays of paintings, and ca. 1,000 photographs (some annotated by Berenson and other art experts) document stock handled by the firm.
Not included in the archive, but retained by the Metropolitan Museum of Art, are the bound X book (1910-1927), that documents the paintings authenticated by Bernard Berenson and sold by Duveen, and 10 client summary books (1894-1959) that record specific sales to clients. Also at the Metropolitan Museum are some 20 binders of photographs printed from the negatives in the archive. The Sterling & Francine Clark Art Institute holds approximately 240 cubic feet of Duveen records, along with the Duveen library of books and catalogues, many of them annotated.
Between 1999 and 2002 the Duveen archive was microfilmed by the SRLF Preservation Microfilming Service at UCLA for the Research Library at the Getty Research Institute. Also microfilmed were the X book and client summary notebooks owned by the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Microfilm reel numbers are noted in the Container list, below.
