Museum Provenance

Jim Shore’s German Santa is inspired by a design or illustration in our Warshaw Collection of Business Americana, located in the Archives Center of our National Museum of American History, Behring Center. A vast assemblage of business ephemera, the collection includes Victorian-era postcards, greeting cards, letterheads, catalogues, advertisements and commerce-related memorabilia. Acquired by the Smithsonian Institution in 1967, this group of over one million items was the collection of Isadore Warshaw, a New York bookseller, who was concerned that the business community lacked interest in preserving its past.

Every Smithsonian purchase will arrive with a museum provenance card explaining how it is adapted from or inspired by an object or objects in our collection.
