Scope and Contents


The Artine Artinian Literary File consists of 632 pictures, the bulk of which are photographic prints of prominent 19th-century individuals contained in a published collector's album. Artinian was a distinguished professor of French literature whose interests as both scholar and collector focused on Guy de Maupassant. The loose prints include both portraits of Maupassant and views of monuments to him in Rouen and Paris. There are also portraits of Maupassant's valet, François Tassart, and views of various places in France, including the vicinity of Etretat, and in Portofino, Italy. An index at the end of this guide lists photographers whose work is featured in this file. Further descriptions of some items may be available in a card catalog in the repository.
This file forms a part of the Literary Files Photography Collection that is comprised of photographs and albums withdrawn from the libraries and/or papers of literary figures, and generally includes portraits and images collected by or of those figures.
