The William Innes Homer papers consist of 20.2 linear feet of material spanning the dates 1895-1970. It is a research collection of monographs, catalogs, magazines, and other ephemeral material that represents trends in art and design as well as the art of photography in the early decades of the twentieth century. Artists and styles represented include Joan Sloan; American dadists; Italian Futurist painters; "modern" artists Braque, Chagall, Dufy, Leger, Madest, Miro, and Picasso; and Beaux Arts architects. Included in the collection are important ephemeral pieces such as a 1914 publisher's prospectus from Galerie Vollard for work by Paul Cezanne; a 1913 prospectus for the new Albert and Charles Boni magazine The Glebe; and a brochure, with commentary by Getrude Traubel, for a 1919 painting and sculpture exhibition at the Macdowell Club in New York. The collection includes representative early photography magazines and extensive files related to Homer's research on Stieglitz and the Photo Secessionists.
