A Collection of Jerome Myers Photographs and Letters

Item #018132

This collection of original material of Jerome Myers includes two photographs of Jerome Myers, taken by Leo Grubman, one taken in 1910 [when they shared an art gallery and studio] and signed by Leo Grubman, the other taken by Grubman circa 1932. There is a photograph of his wife Ethel (photographer not identified). After his success at the Armory Show in 1911 with the sale of his painting "The Mission Tent" he was able to move into a new studio at the new Carnegie Hall building. There are two warmly personal letters with biographical items of interest plus some artistic representation. The first letter is to his friend Leo Grubman, dated January 21, 1914 and discusses with pride his daughter Virginia's dance recital and his busy schedule. There is a second letter (lacking the first page) of one page signed "Jerome" and circa 1915 of his move to Carmel, New York where he bought 18 acres in a very rustic setting (where he has made a few nice ink sketches along the margins of the letter). A small corner is torn off the edge of the letter (affecting two words but of no great importance) This move was largely made on behalf of his daughter's difficult life in the city. However, his major art themes were rooted in New York and especially the Lower East Side. There is a copy of the 1910 photograph by Grubman at the Smithsonian collection though not signed. There was a traveling exhibit entitled: ASHCAN HUMANISTS; JOHN SLOAN AND JEROME MYERS in 2010. The art of Jerome Myers is found in virtually every major museum in America from the Metropolitan, the Whitney, the National Gallery of Art, the Smithsonian, the Art Institute of Chicago and the Huntington along with many others.
