Scope and Contents

This collection contains manuscript drafts for Julia Frey’s biography Toulouse-Lautrec: A Life (1994), typescripts for museum exhibits, career related and general correspondence, articles, book reviews, reviews of Frey’s work, contracts, and general handwritten notes. The material spans the decade of 1987-1997 with the bulk of the material created from 1993-1997. The papers are arranged in three series: I. Works, 1983-1995, II. Correspondence, 1979-1995, and III. Career-Related, 1985-1998.

The Works series is divided into two subseries. Subseries A. Toulouse-Lautrec: A Life contains manuscripts for the biography, including numerous handwritten notes and typescript drafts, reader’s notes, a translated manuscript, a final draft, and galleys. Subseries B., Other Works, includes Frey’s manuscripts for museum catalogues, books reviews, and articles she wrote for various publications.

Series II. Correspondence is comprised of one chronologically arranged folder of general correspondence spanning 1983-1987, and several folders of alphabetically arranged professional correspondence.

Series III. Career related materials includes handwritten notes, permissions for illustrations and materials use, what appears to be a text storyboard for a screenplay based on the biography, interviews, and lists of prospective review sources. This series also contains numerous reviews of Toulouse-Lautrec: A Life by the United States and British press.
