Guide to the Foundation for Southeast Asian Art and Culture records, 1954-2002 and undated

Abstract

On a 1957 trip to India and China, Doris Duke stopped in Thailand, and it is likely that the exploration of Bangkok and its art and architecture she saw on that visit inspired her to dream of creating a Thai village in Hawaii with houses similar to those she had seen. In December of 1960, she formally hired François Duhau de Berenx to help bring it to pass. The Thai House Foundation was established on January 30, 1961; the name was changed to the Foundation for Southeast Asian Art and Culture (SEAAC) in June of that same year. The establishment of the Foundation resulted in a project that Doris Duke saw as a gift to Hawaii, and one that occupied her for many years. At least five sites in Hawaii were considered for the Thai Village and it was the choice of an appropriate location that ultimately proved the stumbling block to completion of the project. Although her dream of a Thai Village was never fulfilled, Doris Duke's interest in Asia continued, as she continued purchasing objects right up until her death in 1993. In 2002, a significant portion of the collection was donated to two museums distinguished for their collections of Southeast Asian art; the Asian Art Museum of San Francisco and the Walters Art Museum in Baltimore.

The collection documents the establishment and management of Doris Duke's Foundation for Southeast Asian Art and Culture (SEAAC). Records in the Administrative series document the purchase and transport of art objects and building parts, Doris Duke's attempts to locate a site for the Thai Village, and the financial records associated with the daily operations and management of the foundation and its assets. The Photograph series consists primarily of black and white images of the art objects and building parts purchased for SEAAC, with some images of houses in Bangkok and other Thai buildings, which served as the inspiration for the Thai Village. The architectural records in this collection include various drawings of the proposed village site and plans for the various buildings that were to be constructed.

Collection Overview

The Foundation for Southeast Asian Art and Culture Records (formerly SEAAC.8) are part of the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation Historical Archives which were donated to the Duke University. David M. Rubenstein Rare Book & Manuscript Library by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation. The collection spans the years 1954 to 2002, and is arranged in three series: Administrative Records, Photographs, and Architectural Records. The collection documents the establishment and management of Doris Duke's Foundation for Southeast Asian Art and Culture. Records in the Administrative series reveal a frenzied few years of acquisition, where the curator of SEAAC sought works of art of all types - manuscript cabinets and manuscripts, Thai ceramics, Chinese porcelains, wood, stone, bronze and ivory sculptures, and complete Thai houses. It also documents Doris Duke's attempts to locate a site for the Thai Village, the transport and exhibition of the objects at the Coach Barn at Duke Farms, and the financial records associated with the daily operations and management of the foundation and its assets. The Photograph series consists primarily of black and white images of the art objects and building parts purchased for SEAAC, with some images of houses in Bangkok and other Thai buildings, which served as the inspiration for the Thai Village. The architectural records in this collection include various drawings of the proposed village site and plans for the various buildings that were to be constructed. The materials in this collection are arranged loosely in chronological order.

Sculpture comprises the largest group of holdings in this collection, with a majority of them serving a religious purpose, but also documented are manuscript cabinets, manuscripts, paintings, chests, jars, Thai fabrics, ceramics, teapots, swords, masks, boxes, and musical instruments. Also included on a much smaller scale, are color photographs of the actual buildings that were to be duplicated in the Thai Village. The photographs are arranged alphabetically and numerically thereunder.

The architectural records in this collection document the various drawings of the proposed Thai Village site and plans for the various buildings that were to be constructed. Records include those from Louis Pursel, of Louis Pursel and Associates, whose role in the project included the siting of the Thai buildings, the possible design of additional buildings, grading, drainage, and plans for utilities, the architectural firm of Wong and Wong and the engineering firm of Towill Corporation. The Foundation also commissioned Professor Plue Chankao, Professor of Architecture for the Fine Arts University, Bangkok, to draw up the plans for the Royal Pantheon and the Wat Phra Kaeo. The records are primarily diazo, but also include ink, pencil, and pastels. Of particular interest are Louis Pursel's original sketches of the Thai House in color pencil and pencil on diazo.

Digital use copies exist for some of the architectural records and have been identified below. Digital use copies can only be accessed onsite in the Rubenstein Library Reading Room. To request access please contact a reference archivist prior to visiting the library.

Historical Note

Doris Duke was an avid world traveler and it was in Asia that she found inspiration for many of the projects she subsequently undertook, including her collection of Asian art. On a 1957 trip to India and China, Doris Duke stopped in Thailand. It is likely that the exploration of Bangkok and its art and architecture she saw on that visit inspired her to dream of creating a Thai village in Hawaii with houses similar to those she had seen. More than a year passed before Doris Duke's idea of constructing the village was formalized, and in December of 1960, she formally hired François Duhau de Berenx, a decorator and art dealer, to help bring it to pass (Berenx was the first Curator of SEAAC). The Thai House Foundation was established on January 30, 1961; the name was changed to the Foundation for Southeast Asian Art and Culture (SEAAC) in June of that same year. The establishment of the Foundation resulted in a project that Doris Duke saw as a gift to Hawaii, and one that occupied her for many years.

At least five sites in Hawaii were considered for the Thai Village and it was the choice of an appropriate location that ultimately proved the stumbling block to completion of the project. While Doris Duke continued to purchase art objects and made plans for additional buildings, between 1966 and 1972, she continued to try to find a site for the village. At the end of 1972, she and Leon Amar began installing SEAAC in the Coach Barn at Duke Farms, and during 1973 and 1974 made several trips to Southeast Asia to purchase objects. Although her dream of a Thai Village was never fulfilled, Doris Duke's interest in Asia continued, as she continued purchasing objects right up until her death in 1993.

In 2002, a significant portion of the collection was donated to two museums distinguished for their collections of Southeast Asian art; the Asian Art Museum of San Francisco and the Walters Art Museum in Baltimore.
