Collection Summary

Abstract

This collection consists of diaries kept by portrait painter Sarah G. Putnam from the age of nine (26 November 1860) until near her death at the age of 61 (10 April 1912). The diaries document her career as a portrait painter and her extensive travels. Putnam also used the diaries as scrapbooks for programs, playbills, letters, postcards, and newspaper clippings, and lists of books read. Her career as an artist is documented through ink and pencil sketches and approximately 400 pasted-in watercolors, with lists and programs of her exhibited paintings. Pasted into the diaries are also 526 photographs corresponding to Putnam's written and painted entries.

Biographical Sketch

Sarah Gooll Putnam, a Boston portrait painter, was born in 1851 to Harriet and John Pickering Putnam. Born into a wealthy family with old Boston ties, Putnam lived most of her life in Boston and in summer homes in Andover and Nahant, Mass. In her youth, Putnam moved into the newly filled Back Bay, where she lived for the remainder of her life.

As a young girl, Putnam did sketches and later progressed to more sophisticated work, including oils and watercolors. She studied art in New York, Munich, and Holland. She painted many portraits in oil of family, friends, and other Bostonians of her social standing. During her career, she exhibited her paintings to critical success in Boston, New York, and Chicago, including two shows at Boston's St. Botolph Club. In addition to oil portraits, Putnam used watercolor, pencil, and ink for landscapes, still lifes, cartoons, and sketches.

Putnam kept her diary from age nine until near her death at age sixty-one in 1912. From age fifteen until late in life, she traveled extensively, visiting the American south and west and Europe many times. Sarah Putnam never married.

Diary Description

Sarah G. Putnam kept her twenty-seven volume diary from 26 November 1860 until 10 April 1912. The diary contains both daily and monthly entries, some written in the form of letters sent home while traveling.

In addition to her diary entries, the volumes contain Putnam's artwork, beginning with sketches done as a child. The volumes are heavily illustrated with Putnam's watercolors, probably removed from a sketchbook. Some sketches and drawings illustrate specific entries, while other work has been pasted in without textual reference. Putnam numbered her illustrations in the first ten volumes.

Putnam also used the volumes as scrapbooks containing photographs, postcards, correspondence, place cards, magazine illustrations, fabric swatches, playbills, dinner party guest lists, and newspaper clippings.

At the end of each of the first several volumes, Putnam recorded books she had read and gifts received from family members for holidays and birthdays. Later volumes contain lists of sitters, dates of sittings, and prices for her portraits.

The final volume in the collection contains photographs of her portraits, including the catalogs of five exhibitions. The captions identify dates and subjects of most paintings. A ledger of her paintings from 1877 to 1911 can be found at the end of this volume.
