Description

For an overview of the collection and a bibliography / Pour une description de la collection et une bibliographie: The Collection of Clémence d’Ennery / La Collection de Clémence d’Ennery (Le Musée d’Ennery).

Part I (October 2022) provides an illustrated overview of Clémence d’Ennery's ledgers and their context to assist users in understanding some of the challenges inherent in transcribing them. An introductory text is followed a transcription of the ledgers themselves. Because of the often phonetic spelling of names, a column at right standardizes the spelling of names (when recognized).

Here, Part II (May 2023) allows more sophisticated consultation of the data by breaking the transcription into structured data fields. This allows both cross-referencing of the names and addresses here with purchase dates and shop addresses over time. It also allows one to sort by estimated dates and prices. Part II also links to the INHA database of collectors and art dealers that launched in October 2022.

The map below allows one to visualize d'Ennery's acquisition networks. Clicking on individual addresses pulls up information about her purchases from these individual shops as well as additional information about their businesses.
