Artwork, 1911 - 1923

 Series

Scope and Contents

The series consists of approximately 1,000 loose pencil or reed pen drawings, watercolors and gouaches, 29 bound volumes of original material, approximately 600 printed items, approximately 10 scrapbooks of printed items, 162 photographs documenting Fraser's art work, and related negatives. Most of the items date from Fraser's mature period, 1911-1921, but there are also several juvenile drawings and paintings and several posthumous publications. The series is organized into eleven subseries, based on the subjects of the items contained within them. The first seven subseries consist only of loose original materials. Many of these were removed from sketchbooks, presumably by Fraser himself. Scrapbooks of original material and the majority of the sketchbooks occupy the eighth subseries and contain diverse subjects. The only exceptions are the sketchbooks that Fraser used during World War I, which are in subseries III. Two subseries are composed of both printed material and original designs for printed material. The last subseries is composed of both printed and original materials executed not by Fraser but by family members, friends, and other artists.
