approximately 40 pencil sketches, 2 paintings on paper (gouache and oil?), and 2 photographic prints
Oversize sketches shelved as BANC PIC 1963.024--C.
Scope and Content
Unsigned sketches, chiefly rough or preliminary pencil sketches, often on scratch paper or fragments of sheets. Putnam’s initials
or partial signature appear on just one sheet. One work (a dock scene) is signed by E.N. Treadwell. Sketches presumed to be
Putnam’s include animal studies, human figures, rough sketches of sculptural or architectural monuments, and a few sketches
of small buildings or room interiors. Photographic prints are of animal skulls: a saber tooth tiger and unknown.
Source of attribution unknown, but materials were presumably received with the Heyneman papers grouped as Putnam material.
