Content Description

The collection in comprised of artwork stored in solander cases; correspondence, manuscripts and other written materials in manuscript boxes; copies of children's books which Werth illustrated; personal photographs; wood blocks used for printing; and art supplies.

Solander cases: The collection contains 95% of Werth's American output, which are predominantly illustrations for books for children. The artwork is filed alphabetically by book title; the last two solander cases contain non-manuscript and miscellaneous artwork.

The illustrations for children's books include artwork for 54 books, over half of which were published. Published books with artwork in the collection span the period 1952 (Rosalys Hall's The Merry Miller) to 1974 (Hall's The Three Beggar Kings).

Some of the authors of notes with whom Werth worked are poets Maxine Kumin (Faraway Farm) and Phyllis McGinley (How Mrs. Santa Claus Saved Christmas and The Year Without a Santa Claus); Sid Fleischman (McBroom and the Big Wind, and other McBroom titles); and Charlotte Zolotow (A Tiger Called Thomas, The Quiet Mother and the Noisy Little Boy).

The artwork for children's books represents a variety of stages in the illustration process, some titles being more complete than others. Titles in the collection having the widest range of illustration stages are Hear Ye of Boston and The Three Beggar Kings. Other titles showing a good range of illustration stages are: How Mrs. Santa Claus Saved Christmas, It's Fun to Rhyme, Molly and the Giant, Samuel Clemens, Scat the Witch's Cat, and Stop It, Moppit!

Artwork for Sid Fleischman's McBroom's Zoo is interesting because one of the two dummies included bares holographic comments on the drawings by editor Harriet McDougal of Grosset & Dunlap.

Non-manuscript artwork (solander cases 11 and 12) includes many printed book covers; illustrations from the magazines Common Sense, Free World, Harper's, New York Times, Querschnitt, Simplicissimus, Tomorrow (all from the early period); greeting cards and woodcuts, probably done in Germany, many signed.

Manuscript boxes: Contained here are biographical material, correspondence, and manuscripts, predominantly for children's books, by a variety of authors, but especially Werth who rewrote or adapted many traditional tales for children. Published stories by Werth with manuscripts in various stages include The Cobbler's Dilemma, King Thrushbeard, and The Monkey, the Lion, and the Snake. Of interest is the correspondence for It's Fun to Rhyme, Molly and the Giant, and What Are You Afraid Of? Which is included in the manuscript file for each title. Other written materials such as personal memorabilia, story fragments, and manuscripts and poems by Werth's wife, Margaret Werth, are also included.

Books: Of the 186 books kept with the collection, there are three limited edition titles published in the 1920's in Germany: Euripides' Die Bachen, Puschkin's Pique Dame, and Shakespeare's Troilus and Cressida.

Other: Personal photographs of the Werth family, all taken in Europe, 1926-1938, have been removed to the Photograph Collection. Fifteen wood blocks used for printed, approximately 4 x 4, are boxes at the end of the collection, as well as Werth's art supplies consisting of tubes of paint, toothbrushes, rollers, linseed oil, and similar items.

Historical Note

Kurt Werth, a leading illustrator of books for children, was born September 21, 1896 in Leipzig, Germany. His parents, Rudolph Werth, a salesman, and Emma Helbig, did not encourage their son's artistic inclinations. However, he entered the State Academy for the Graphic Arts in Leipzig in 1913 and studied there for two years before being drafted into the army. When not in action, he filled sketchbooks with scenes of the life around him, and illustrated a copy of Rilke's The Cornet Rilke. All of these sketchbooks have been lost.

After the war he returned for two more years of study at the State Academy, leaving in 1921 for Munich where he began illustrating limited edition books which included Shakespeare's Trolius and Cressida, and books by Euripides, Puschkin, Kipling, and the German authors Wasserman and Kleist.

In 1924, Werth began drawing satirical cartoons for the Munich magazine, The Jugend, and the Swiss magazine, Nebelspalter. Four years later he and his wife Margaret, an actress, moved to Berlin where she became part of the City Theater. Werth heightened his activity here as a creator of satirical cartoons with his work for the Berliner Tageblatt, and the magazines Querschnitt and Simplicissimus, among others.

With Hitler's increasing power, the magazines folded, and Margaret Werth, who was Jewish, was not allowed to work. In the 1939 the Werths immigrated to the United States where Werth found employment illustrating a Sunday column in the New York Times magazine.

When the United States became involved in World War II, Werth began drawing cartoons for a number of the new magazines that had appeared on the political scene: Common Sense, Free World, The New Republic, Tomorrow, as well as Harper's.

The bulk of these publications disappeared with the war's conclusion, so Werth returned to book publishing, illustrating textbooks for Oxford University Press and other publishing houses. One of his first attempts at illustrating a picture book for children, Rosalys Hall's The Merry Miller, received much favorable notice and opened the door to requests from other authors and publishers.

Werth states, "As a German I was certainly influenced by the tradition of exact and thorough training in drawing. This goes back to Durer and even farther." He attempts to illustrate children's books in a "modern style." "Books have to be illustrated in our times. They should show the style of our times. Not all of them do it."

Kurt Werth died in New York City on August 25, 1983.
