Scope and content

Series consists of three subseries: Unfinished artwork, drawings, and sketches; Reproductions and prints; and Art inventory files. Records contain original artwork by Lansdowne (most of it unfinished paintings and sketches) as well as a few pieces by amateur artists who were fans of Lansdowne's work and reproductions of Lansdowne’s artwork which include prints, posters, banners, exhibit catalogues and cards, order forms, stamps, road maps, calendars and the like. Records also include Art inventory files which contain records on pieces of art that Lansdowne produced, including an art inventory card index, and files varying in contents, but which typically included at least one reproduction of the artwork, an envelope containing an alpha-numeric code and the name of the bird(s) featured in each piece. Art inventory files may also include photographs, negatives, positives, slides, and photocopies and the like.
