About the Catalogue Raisonné

The Fitzgerald Catalogue Raisonné embraces all types of media, including the primary ones of oil and watercolor, as well as many other media on paper: Chinese ink monochrome, gold, silver, and copper leaf, charcoal, pencil, and pen and ink. The Catalogue is primarily a web-based publication, providing a current and easily accessible resource for scholars and collectors. The goal is to publish a book with a selected catalogue of major works accompanied by a scholarly examination of the artist’s work and career.

The web provides an opportunity for those interested in the work of James Fitzgerald to have access to the broad spectrum of his work not available in any hard-copy publication. It is the objective of the Legacy to make images of Fitzgerald’s work, as well as other information, such as exhibitions and provenance, available as soon as it becomes known, rather than waiting for the print publication. As such, it is important to recognize that information is added and the catalogue modified as new information comes to light. Should you have information about a particular work that is not reflected in the catalogue, we would like to hear from you.

Statement of Copyright

Formal application to the Trust for permission for any reproduction, illustration, text, or other use must be made in writing, well in advance of the planned date for the publication or use.

Unlocated Works
Although every effort has been made to track down the location or fate of every known work by Fitzgerald, either through the Estate records compiled by Ann Hubert, or through gallery records, sales, or catalogs and reviews of exhibitions, there remain works that have not yet been located or are unaccounted for. Some of these have been catalogued to the greatest extent possible, but often with only the briefest information. Eventually, the Fitzgerald online Catalogue Raisonné will contain a list of works with unknown locations or owners. In the meantime, if you believe that you own or know of a work by Fitzgerald and want to find out if we have a record of it, we would very much like to hear from you. Please contact us at fitzgeraldlegacy@aol.com.

All information is strictly confidential.
