H. A. Raapke Architectural Drawings

 Collection — Box: 1
Identifier: MSS-0036

The H. A. Raapke Architectural Drawings collection contains original architectural drawings and studies dating from 1891 to 1907. The collection includes one sketchbook (9.5" x 7.5") with detached pages, containing detailed, precise pencil sketches of architectural flourishes, initialed HAR and annotated with measurements; locations in Italy, Germany, Greece, and elsewhere; and dates ranging from 1906 to 1907. The bulk of the collection comprises 48 loose sheets (most 18.5" x 24.5") with detailed architectural drawings in pencil, some with watercolor accents. Some are stamped "Atelier Préparatoire D'Architecture, Godefroy & Freynet, 4, Rue du Dragon, 4 - Paris" or "Ecole Nationale des Beaux-Arts, Concours D'Emulation." Many are signed H.A. Raapké. The artist seems to have experimented with different stylized signatures with varying degrees of legibility, at one point apparently shortening the spelling to H.A. Rapké. At some point, the artist appears to have dropped the acute accent mark from Raapke. Some drawings are unstamped and unsigned. The range of dates of these drawings is from 1899 to 1907, with some sheets lacking dates.
