Life drawings and studies

Series consists of undated drawings that appear to be contemporary with the notebooks in Series 1 and are consistent with the usual output of an art student. Figure studies predominate, probably originating in life drawing classes with a few drawings of specific individuals and places. A number of published plates of models and statuary are included. Four experiments with print-making are also included in this series, possibly dating from 1930 when Munn attended printmaking classes at the Art Students’ League. A file of decorative patterns and one cut stencil are also included in this series. One pattern contains a draft letter to the artist’s mother on the verso, remarking on a proposed visit to Elbert Hubbard’s Roycroft studio in East Aurora, NY (Hubbard died in 1915). A money-making scheme is mentioned in the letter, perhaps revolving around the production of these stencils. Photocopies of letters written to Kathleen Munn around this time are included (originals remain in the family). Series also contains a hand-lettered sign for a sale at Munn’s Jewelry store, undated and unsigned.

Munn, Kathleen Jean, 1887-1974
