Series IV: Writings

This series houses all of Schapiro's writings, from published articles, books, and reviews, to unpublished manuscripts, essays, and translations. For writings that were published during Schapiro's lifetime, the 1995 publication Meyer Schapiro: the bibliography compiled by Lillian Milgram Schapiro was used throughout this series for consistency and to source where articles and reviews first appeared. Information relating to all material published posthumously and that post-dates the 1995 bibliography were retrieved from the archival material itself.

Subseries: IV.1: Administrative records, 1960s-2003

Files in this subseries contain records that aided in the administrative management of Schapiro's writings. The bulk of this material comprises lists of published and unpublished writings.

Subseries: IV.2: Articles, 1929-1994

Schapiro began publishing articles focused on art and architecture as early as 1929, the year he completed his doctoral dissertation. By 1931, the journal Art Bulletin published parts of his dissertation "The Romanesque Sculpture of Moissac." Since those early years, Schapiro continually published articles in newspapers, journals, and other serials throughout his life. This subseries contains only those articles that have been published, for unpublished works, consult Subseries: IV.3: Essays, Subseries: IV.4: Manuscripts, and Subseries: IV.8: Translations and Poetry in this series. For publications, consult Subseries: IV.5: Publications.

All bibliographic information in this subseries was retrieved from Lillian Milgram Schapiro's 1995 publication Meyer Schapiro: the bibliography published by George Braziller Inc. Bibliographic information is provided for an article's original publication, consult the published bibliography for information on reprinted versions.

To facilitate the discovery of records, this subseries is arranged chronologically by decade as follows: Sub-Subseries: IV.2.1: 1929-1930s, Sub-Subseries: IV.2.2: 1940s, Sub-Subseries: IV.2.3: 1950s, Sub-Subseries: IV.2.4: 1960s, Sub-Subseries: IV.2.5: 1970s, Sub-Subseries: IV.2.6: 1980s.

Subseries: IV.3: Essays, 1930s-1990s

Writings in this subseries constitute work that has never been published. These individual essays were originally housed with material found in Series V: Research files, Subseries: V.5: Research notes. What differentiated these texts from Schapiro's unorganized research notes is that he provided these essays with a clear title heading, allowing them to be well defined individual texts. Given their subject and title specificity, they have been organized chronologically in this subseries to facilitate their discovery. These essays are either in the format of prose or are prepared as outlines. Consult Series V: Research files, Subseries: V.5: Research notes for related material and on the arrangement of those records.

Subseries: IV.4: Manuscripts, 1930s-2002

Subseries IV.4 contains unpublished material that Schapiro wrote, organized, and edited for intended publication. Among the titles included in this subseries are "The content of modern art: studies in the painting of the end of the nineteenth century from Manet to Munch," "Pablo Picasso's Guernica, " "The serpent with a woman's head in the temptation of Eve: researches on the invention of an image," and "Relativity and the interpretation of modern painting."

Schapiro continually revisited and reworked his previous writings, transcripts, and research notes to compile these manuscripts. As a result, work on one single manuscript could cross several decades and, after Schapiro's death, would continue to be worked on by his wife Lillian Milgram Schapiro. In each individual instance, original order created by Schapiro or his wife Lillian Milgram Schapiro was maintained. Every effort was made to contextualize these manuscripts by highlighting historical documentation contained elsewhere in the collection to give these writings a fuller understanding. To that end, included after each title are arrangement notes for how the manuscript is organized, their organizational structure, and, if applicable, the rationale on the final title chosen

"The introduction of the Romanesque in Silos"

(No substantial information about this manuscript exists, other than the same subject matter is found in Schapiro's published article "From Mozarabic to Romanesque in Silos." Related material can be found in Subseries: V.5: Research notes. The manuscript deals chiefly with the sculpture found in cloister of the abbey at Santo Domingo de Silos and its differentiation from manuscript illumination and other Romanesque sculpture. There are no indications that the manuscript was ever published and Schapiro prepared it as if it were ready for publication as evidenced by the inclusion of references for illustrations within the text.)

"How the fish ate up the house"

(Schapiro's children's story was created in the 1930s for his daughter and was originally a hand sewn booklet made up of his typescripts and drawings. In 2004 Lillian Milgram Schapiro would revisit the story by adding text and other illustrations by Schapiro to create an expanded manuscript version for potential publication)

"The content of modern art: studies in the painting of the end of the nineteenth century from Manet to Munch"

(According to correspondence in file 18 of Box 242 of this series, plans to publish this manuscript began in 1937 when Oxford University Press, New York, initiated contract discussions with Schapiro. There was also an agreement between Oxford University Press and the Museum of Modern Art to collaborate on the publication in 1939 but that never materialized. In an announcement dated 1938 found in file 19 of Box 242 of this series, Phaidon Press was to publish the manuscript as "The content of modern art: studies in painting from Manet to Munch." That publication was also never realized. There are three variations of the title; the longer version is used since it includes variants from the other two titles. When possible, file titles below were supplied or condensed using Schapiro's annotations or text to guide users to the contents found in the manuscript. Original file order is maintained to preserve Schapiro's ordering. As a result, file titles may not include sequential sequencing such as section numbers. Files have research notes and editorial notes interleaved in the typescript sheets)

"Georges Seurat"

(Files associated with this manuscript are largely in outline format and filed by subject. In the 1990s Lillian Milgram Schapiro used Schapiro's outline in file 1, Box 243 as a guide to reconstruct this manuscript. However, file naming conventions below follow title headings of the outlines and are arranged matching content to outline titles as closely as possible. Section titles of the manuscript indicated in the outline are given at the end of each file description)

(From a book jacket design in file 5 of Box 248 in this series and correspondence in file 9 Box 248, this manuscript was to be published by the Museum of Modern Art, New York as "Guernica: studies, postscripts" possibly in the 1970s or 1980s. Schapiro wrote consistently on Picasso's Guernica, and material found in these files is culled from the 1940s through the 1990s. Files are organized by a pagination scheme devised by Lillian Milgram Schapiro in the 1990s through the 2000s relying on Schapiro's original annotations on the typescripts.

"Impressionism" --

(Material from this manuscript is based on Schapiro's Indiana University Patten Lectures from 1961. Schapiro would revise and annotate transcripts from these lectures for potential publication largely in the 1980s and 1990s with the editorial support of Lillian Milgram Schapiro. Materials found in these files were posthumously published in 1997 by George Braziller and edited by James Thompson as Impressionism: reflections and perceptions. The files in this subseries are organized according to Schapiro's own 1985 outline for the manuscript found in file 8, Box 252 in this subseries. While Thompson generally followed Schapiro's outline for the publication, Schapiro's scheme varies on section titles and organization. Schapiro also has additional sections and content and hence its inclusion into this subseries)

"Philosophy and world-view in painting"

(While this manuscript would be published posthumously as an essay in the 1999 George Braziller publication Worldview in painting: art and society: selected papers, Volume 5, Schapiro worked continuously since the 1960son revising and drafting components of this manuscript for publication. Material in these manuscript files are retained in this subseries because content differs considerably from the 1999 publication. The manuscript draws on lectures on the topic of philosophy and art given in the 1950s and the 1960s and files in this subseries include material from those lectures. In the 1990s Lillian Milgram Schapiro edited and supervised the reconstruction of the text for the 1999 publication. Her editorial notes are also retained in these files. )

"The serpent with a woman's head in the temptation of Eve: researches on the invention of an image" --

(This manuscript is dedicated to the art historian Otto Pächt on his 70th birthday. Schapiro began this manuscript in the 1970s and continued to revise and expand it through the 1980s. In the original typescript, Schapiro annotated an alternate subtitle as the following: "on invention and tradition in the illustration of a canonical religious text." In a subsequent, corrected typescript, found in file 1, Box 254 Schapiro would then again alter the subtitle as "an essay on iconographic invention." The latter typescript does not carry a dedication to Pächt either. The original title is used as it contains variations of all three titles)

"Words in pictures: the perspectives of the viewer and the reader"

(This manuscript is based on Schapiro's 1976 lecture "Perspective and script: the viewer and the reader in Medieval representations" given at the medieval painting symposium held at the University of Pittsburgh in honor of Carl Nordenfalk. As outlined in his editorial note in file 1, Box 256, Schapiro had two versions of this manuscript: 1) the original lecture typescript; and 2) an enlarged second version. According to Schapiro, the second version was enlarged to reflect the "revived interest in the use of writing on the canvas in 20th century art." Schapiro didn't develop these concepts due to lack of time, but the files incorporate his research and editorial notes to reflect his interest in these concepts. Schapiro continually changed the title of this manuscript, see file 3 Box 256 for an editorial note on title variations especially as they relate to the use of the term "semiotics." The title used reflects Schapiro's consistent use of the phrase" Words in pictures" to refer to this manuscript)

"Relativity and the interpretation of modern painting"

(This manuscript was referred to by Schapiro as "Albert Einstein and Cubism," but the title used is supplied from the first page of the typescript found in file 1 Box 257. According to Lillian Milgram Schapiro in a letter found in file 8 Box 258 this manuscript is loosely based on Schapiro's 1979 lecture "Einstein and Abstract art" given at a Hebrew University symposium commemorating the centennial of Albert Einstein's birth. In correspondence found in Folder 8, Box 258, Schapiro signed off to include his contribution to the symposium in a book to be published by Princeton University Press titled Albert Einstein, historical and cultural perspectives : the centennial symposium in Jerusalem, but it was never included in the final publication of 1982. Material found in these manuscript files are largely research notes, drafts, and revisions that Schapiro wrote in the 1980s. In the 1990s Lillian Milgram Schapiro worked with Joseph Masheck to edit and reconstruct the text, but the material was never published. The pagination scheme used below is based on annotations that also match original file order)

Omer began working with Schapiro in 1993 to formulate a list of works to be translated and published, but that was never realized. Lillian Milgram Schapiro began working on this project in 2003 but a published work never materialized. Title was derived from editorial notes found in the file)

"Burial at Ornans"

(Referring to the painting by Gustave Courbet, this manuscript survives primarily as printouts created using Schapiro's research notes and outlines from the 1940s-1960 found in files 5 and 6 in Box 264. Similar elements and motifs in this manuscript can be found in Shapiro's published article "Courbet and popular imagery: an essay on realism and naïveté" published in the Warburg Journal. In the 1990s Lillian Milgram Schapiro circulated Schapiro's research material on Courbet to Maura Reilly and Robin Sand to reconstruct the text into manuscript form. As a result, files for this manuscript have printout versions interleaved with Lillian Milgram Schapiro's editorial notes and Schapiro's photocopied notes in a semi-paginated format. When possible, pagination was supplied using annotations provided)

Subseries: IV.7: Scrapbooks, 1928-1966

The scrapbooks found in this subseries were compiled by Schapiro and include articles and clippings of Schapiro's work written from eh 1930s to the 1960s. The scrapbooks' titles mirror the volumes of his collected work published by George Braziller and may have been the basis for the organization of those publications.

Subseries: IV.8: Translations and poetry, 1930s-1943

Schapiro was a well known linguist and wrote several essays on language and semiotics. It comes as no surprise then that he also translated texts, predominantly those that are French. Of all his translations, only two were formally published: the 1943 translation of Andre Masson's Anatomy of My Universe, of which Schapiro was not credited; and "Three Texts on Science ("A Dream"); Wit and Common Sense; Genius and Method (Lichtenberg, Diderot, Galiani)" published by Anon in 1973.

The bulk of this subseries, however, is dedicated to Schapiro's translations of Charles Baudelaire's texts. Since there were very limited English translations of Baudelaire's writings on art and culture at the time, Schapiro worked on translating them beginning in the 1930s. According to files in this subseries, there were plans to publish these translations, as Baudelaire's work in English had yet to materialize, but that project was never realized.

Also included in this subseries is an extensive file of poems that Schapiro wrote.

Charles Baudelaire

(Since there were very limited English translations of Baudelaire's writings on art and culture at the time, Schapiro worked on translating them beginning in the 1930s. According to correspondence in Folder 18, Box 288, Oxford University Press was to publish these translations as "The Art Criticism of Baudelaire." However, this publication never materialized and by 1948 Oxford University Press and Phaidon Press were again seeking to publish English translations of Baudelaire's work on art. There were discussions for Schapiro to be involved in these 1948 publications given his previous work on their translations, but neither press published them. Titles in quotes used are derived from Schapiro's typescripts)
