Title: A CATALOGUE OF THE MR. AND MRS. WILLIAM PRESTON HARRISON GALLERIES OF AMERICAN ART - COMPILED AND ARRANGED BY PRESTON HARRISON
Description: Los Angeles, Saturday Night Publishing Company., 1934, First Edition. Illustrated Wrappers, 8vo, 76pp, 60 b&w illustrations. With a collection checklist. In a clear acetate dustwrapper. Along with Walter Arensberg, William Preston Harrison was one of the earliest major collectors of modernist art in Los Angeles. This is the privately printed catalogue that documents the Harrisons' "gift to the people" of American paintings and watercolors donated in the early thirties to the Los Angeles Museum. Included were works by Gifford Beal, George Bellows, Frank W. Benson, Guy Pene du Bois, Ernest L. Blumenschein, Hugh Breckenridge, William Merritt Chase, Arthur B. Davies, Stuart Davis, Preston Dickinson, Thomas Eakins, Frederick Carl Frieseke, William Glackens, Childe Hassam, Robert Henri, Leon Kroll, John Lafarge, Ernest Lawson, George Luks, John Marin, Gari Melchers, Kenneth Hayes Miller, Maurice Prendergast, John Sloan, Henry Ossawa Tanner, Elihu Vedder, Abraham Walkowitz, Max Weber, William Zorach, and many others. It also contains the copious documents related to the transfer of these works to the County Board of Supervisors that established a core collection of what was eventually to become The Los Angeles County Museum of Art. A most handsome example of this uncommon item showing just a bit of light wear, soiling, and age-appropriate patination to its pale blue wrappers.. Near Fine.
