Archives of Colour Reproductions of Paintings

  • FR PUNES AG 13
  • Archive Group
  • 1949 - 1979

This Archive Group refers to a project of the Culture Sector from 1949 to ca. 1979. Since 1949, UNESCO, with the assistance of its National Commissions, made contact with publishers of reproductions of famous paintings throughout the world. The reproductions were examined and the publishers were then listed as sources for accurate reproductions of masterpieces of world art. The reproductions could then be purchased and disseminated, rendering the masterpieces accessible to the world. UNESCO then published several catalogues and maintained a collection (called "Archives of Colour Reproductions of Paintings") which contained all reproductions received as samples.
The idea of the UNESCO project was to give the vast majority of people who never or only occasionally have the chance to see the originals of great paintings access to them by substituting these art works with high-quality colour reproductions.
With the aim of making the best colour reproductions more easily available to teachers, students and the general art-interested public, UNESCO, over a period of 30 years, produced catalogues listing by the end more than 15,000 paintings of which high-quality reproductions exist and could be obtained. The volumes were intended not only to bring art into homes and schools but also to encourage the increased production of colour prints and the improvement of reproduction standards and methods.
At UNESCO Headquarters complete sets of the prints were kept so that visitors would have been able to see the reproductions themselves.
The main criteria by which the prints have been chosen were the fidelity of the reproduction, the significance of the artist, and the importance of the original painting. The selection had been done by two committees of experts set up in agreement with the International Council of Museums that decided which reproductions should be included in UNESCO’s catalogue and collection.

Archives de Jacqueline Baudrier

Dossiers constitués par Jacqueline Baudrier principalement lors de ses années d'activité à l'UNESCO. Ils portent surtout sur les sessions du Conseil exécutif et de la Conférence générale, ainsi que sur les conférences, les groupes de travail, les affaires etc. ayant eu lieu durant ces années. On remarque ainsi l'importance du nombre de dossiers relatifs au retrait des Etats-Unis et à la crise de l'UNESCO, thèmes prédominants de ces années. En conséquence, les pièces traitant de manière plus ou moins directe de ces sujets sont nombreuses et ne se trouvent pas seulement dans la série qui leur est spécialement dédiée. De même, l'implication de Jacqueline Baudrier dans le Nouvel Ordre Mondial de l'Information et de la Communication (NOMIC) explique que l'on retrouve ce sujet dans d'autres dossiers que ceux des séries qui lui sont consacrées. Etant restée extrêmement attentive à tout ce qui concerne la presse, le journalisme et la communication en général, Jacqueline Baudrier a rassemblé aussi beaucoup de pièces relatives à ces domaines. On peut remarquer que certains dossiers portant sur l'UNESCO et ses champs d'action ont été constitués ou alimentés après le départ de Jacqueline Baudrier de l'UNESCO : cela a été précisé au niveau des dossiers concernés et peut être repéré, à chaque niveau, au travers des dates de production. Des documents relevant des autres activités de Jacqueline Baudrier durant ces années ou autour de cette période sont aussi présents.

Le fonds est constitué des cinq séries suivantes :

  • Documents de travail en tant que Délégué permanent de la France auprès de l’UNESCO
  • Retrait américain et crise de l’UNESCO
  • Communication et information – PIDC et NOMIC
  • La France au sein de l’UNESCO et la Francophonie
  • Dossiers professionnels et personnels divers
