This Emily Hall Tremaine -Tremaine Collection / Miller Company micro-site at artdesigncafe is the authoritative, researched source and centralized, online disseminator of information focused on the post-WWII Modernist art and design achievements of Emily Hall Tremaine (1908-87) and Burton Tremaine (c. 1902-91)— and Emily’s earlier creative work from 1928-45 during her previous marriages with Max von Romberg and Adolph B. Spreckels, Jr. This micro-site is packed with a lot of new information clarifying Emily’s work and life.

Overlooked for too many years and falling through various cracks, artdesigncafe took action starting in 2016 with the Tremaine / Miller Co. documentation recovery and dissemination pursuit previewed below. The effort has resulted in many taking another closer look at their highly influential art and design organizing and collecting work, an important force in Post-World War II American Modernism.

With Burton and Emily Hall Tremaine’s initial Modernist Painting toward Architecture (1947-52) crossover power engine and interest in varied creative fields— fine art, architecture, product design, interior design, graphic design, new patented lighting technology, and world-class communications, it is expected that the Tremaine work will be of historical interest for decades and centuries to come. Further, regarding the context of Emily’s 1930s work, the anti-Nazi / Nazi battle in California, greater attention in this different strand is rapidly gaining mainstream interest and attention as a historical mystery.

> I. Mystery, danger & misunderstandings: Emily Hall Tremaine in the 1930s

The "original It Girl" Emily Hall Tremaine performed media coverage rock’n roll back in the 1930s.

Self-made, she spun articles through wire services published across American newspapers and beyond. Then she took on California Nazis in 1940-41 occupying newspapers for over four months. (After WWII, she applied this knowledge to her art activity, placing works into hundreds of shows and publications.)

Like some art people you may know, Emily’s artworks were her children. In the coming years, it is expected that a catalogue raisonné of the highest quality will be published to honor the extraordinary work of Emily Hall Tremaine and Burton Tremaine. Contact the Emily Hall Tremaine Foundation to inquire about the current status.




A. Continued introduction - Emily Hall Tremaine and Burton Tremaine: A dynamic force in American Modern art and design

Over the years, there were many art finds by the Tremaines, often purchased early on in artist’s careers. Their acquisitions included Andy Warhol’s Marilyn diptych (1962), voted the third most influential Modern artwork in 2004 in a Turner Prize survey. Emily is credited with suggesting the two panels be placed side-by-side. In 1980, she sold the artwork to the Tate Gallery in London. Other finds include Jasper Johns’s Three flags (1958), since 1980 at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York and featured on several, varied publication covers. In the Netherlands, Emily is known as the first owner of Piet Mondrian’s Victory Boogie Woogie (1942-44), a prized artwork in the country today. At the official unveiling of VBW in The Hague in 1998 after the purchase was Dutch Queen Beatrix with curators comparing the work’s significance to, among others, the Mona Lisa. Yes, the Mona Lisa.

Design commissions over the years by the Tremaines included the unbuilt Tremaine House (1948) by Oscar Niemeyer and Roberto Burle Marx, recognized for fusing rectilinear and organic orientations in art and design at an important time in America. The Tremaines even had a hand in Walter de Maria’s iconic Lightning field (1977), letting the artist set up and test the work on their land in Arizona, prior to the siting in New Mexico.

Before PtA in the 1930s, Emily Hall Tremaine worked in the publishing field, achieving national level media attention for her work and also her life. However, it was only after meeting and marrying Burton Tremaine that her interest and exhibition of artworks took off. It is their conversations that are understood to have developed the Tremaine Collection and the power of their selections can be seen in the exhibitions of the works to the present day.

Also contributing to the former Tremaine Collection discussion are: Louise Lawler’s Tremaine Pictures— both photoworks and new, related editions, over 200 so far— showing Tremaine-owned artworks in their New York and Connecticut interiors; and the selected Tremaine-owned works in the well-known 1988 and 1991 Christie’s auctions after Emily’s death. Further, criticism by the Guerrilla Girls for the male-only artist selection of works that ended up at auction also contribute to the discussion with continued exhibition of their critical poster. (However, note that numerous works by female artists collected by the Tremaines over the years were left out at the auction, not at Sotheby’s as stated in the artwork, but Christie’s).

Further, off in Australia and circling back to Painting toward architecture, the impact of the initial project is well-known via the work of architect Harry Seidler. Over the years, Seidler frequently mentioned the influence of the Painting toward architecture book and its impact on his work. In fact, after Emily’s death, he later acquired an important Van Doesburg work in the original PtA, an image featured in a travelling exhibition of his work in the 2010s, and the artwork was later donated to the National Gallery of Australia in Canberra.

Painting toward Architecture exhibition

"The part that the Medicis played in Renaissance Italy can be best approximated today by such great corporations as those that I have named and the fact that the Miller [Company] recently won an award for having made the best use of the fine arts to promote high standard in the [caliber] of their own products is truly significant." (Adelyn D. Breeskin, Director, Baltimore Museum of Art, excerpt from speech, 4 April 1948, at opening of Painting toward Architecture, at one of 28+ venues.)


After decades under historical dust, Painting toward architecture (1947-52) since 2017 has gained attention and is being revisited— and often looked at in any depth for the first time— by Modern art and design scholars. However, more extensive documentation recovery of the important Post-WWII initiative is needed.

Current state of documentation: At this juncture, any original archive of PtA-era documentation that may have been maintained at an earlier time is presumed lost. If you know of anything, please do contact artdesigncafe.com. Important details of this history have to date, been lost.

The Emily Hall Tremaine’s papers at the Smithsonian (see section H. below) do not include exhibition files prior to 1962. There are bits and pieces of documentation scattered in the papers and difficult to find quickly, and nothing as of 2021 is yet organized at that resource for this era. artdesigncafe took documentation recovery action starting in 2016 and as of 2021, the documentation listed above functions as the Painting toward architecture archive.

Of highest importance to the PtA mystery are more details and documentation related to lighting and commercial interior design applications, the stated purpose of the PtA project, and graphics, and how both may have been presented as an aside to art / architecture exhibitions (28+).

The Miller Company work focused on residential and then commercial lighting. Research is needed to better understand the strands of Modernism at the company, particularly related to 1930s lighting design, particularly by Leroy C. Doane, and Burton Tremaine’s design management. This is important to understanding the predecessor work leading to Painting toward Architecture (1947-52). Currently very little is known.

The Tremaine Collection exhibition (1984) at the Wadworth Atheneum, Hartford, Connecticut, was an important exhibition showing a selection of the later state of the collection. It is important to note that many works prior were donated, sold or traded for other artworks.

Louise Lawler’s Tremaine pictures series is an important disseminator of the Tremaine art legacy. However, the "Tremaine" connection over the years at times has been lost across the number of photos and later manifestations by the artist. The compilation below identifies the photos, and the artworks shown in the photos, for researchers.

Emily Hall Tremaine 1930s

G. Publications mentioning Emily Hall Tremaine

An important creative force in Post-WWII America, Emily Hall Tremaine was mentioned in several artistic contexts across art, design and communications in a variety of publications after WWII. Before WWII, Emily was the "original It Girl" as a socialite-celebrity during the Nazi era in California.

Please note, many publications that mention Tremaine-owned works also mention the Tremaines in some way. This can be seen via photo credits, and regarding exhibitions, being listed as lenders.

Below is a developing selected compilation by artdesigncafe. For more substantial media mentions of Emily before 1945 and that context, see below "section I: Mystery, danger & misunderstandings: Emily Hall Tremaine in the 1930s".

Left: The first publicity wave of Emily and Max von Romberg, c. 3 August 1928, after their society wedding months earlier. Right: In 1933, this "mug shot" was distributed by a news photo agency in 1933. The caption suggests they are playing a game, getting incorrect information into print as a joke. Placing key messages into the media later appears to become Emily’s specialty. This photo, but Max cropped out, ends up following Emily after his death awkwardly, and into the 1940-41 divorce case media coverage.


Key mass media coverage events

Emily Hall Tremaine

Sample tabloid article, mass distributed in newspaper supplements across America in March 1936, facilitated by Emily Hall Tremaine (then Von Romberg) during her work for her start-up Aperitif magazine.



1934-36 - with Aperitif mag

See the texts


Emily Hall Tremaine

Cropped view of page in Emily Hall Tremaine’s 1930s scrapbook showing multiple media coverage on her and her work at Aperitif magazine. In August 1935, Emily transformed or staged a defamation threat into a media / publicity event with national news coverage, promoting the magazine.

Aperitif magazine was owned and managed by Emily Hall Tremaine (then Von Romberg) and her husband Max in some varying combination in 1934-36. It featured provocative content and put forth California-based writers with an anti-Nazi slant.

In the 1930s, Emily and Max were celebrities during a time when minor royalty and socialites were in celebrity-oriented media coverage, and polo— Max was a polo player— and reported on the sports pages. Today’s equivalent would be a couple like Paris Hilton dating a baseball player— and they have minor royal titles and that’s also of interest.

Also at this time, more black-and-white photos are used in newspapers, with many utilizing photos of Max and Emily. Arguably, media / communications practice was developing then, and Emily as a self-made was mastering that.

See the webpage, Apéritif magazine (1934-36), issues, contents, media coverage & shocking context, for more information.

Daily News (Los Angeles), 24 February 1937, p. 21.


1937-38 - Emily & pals vs. the British Nazi

See the texts


In Hitler in Los Angeles: How Jews foiled Nazi plots against Hollywood and America (2017), in chapter 14, "Slaughter the Hollywood Jews", p. 205, we learn that [British Nazi] Leopold McLaglen, brother of actor Victor McLaglen, has an idea: "Promising to use the money he received from [Philip] Chancellor [via extortion] to pay for the hit men, McLaglan [sic] began compiling, with his friends, a list of people they would kill." ...

"[This list included] some of the most famous people in the world: Jack Benny, Herbert Biberman, James Cagney, Eddie Cantor, Charles Chaplin, Emanuel Cohen, Sam Goldwyn, Henry Herzbrun [film producer], Al Jolson, Leon Lewis, Fredric March, Louis B. Mayer, Paul Muni, Joseph Schenk, B. P. Schulberg, Mendel Silberberg, Franchon Simon, Donald Ogden Stewart, Gloria Stuart, Sylvia Sydney, Ernst Toller, Walter Winchell, Marco Wolff, and William Wyler" [noted in October 1937 spy report; McLaglen’s activity with Chancellor was noted to have begun as late as April 1937].

See the mysterious photo above of Emily Hall Tremaine (previously Von Romberg) with her husband Max and pals Philip and Elza Chancellor taken just weeks earlier. What are these socialities up to?

McLaglen was later arrested and put on trial for extortion, reported in newspapers across the United States. The planned assassinations did not happen. In a funny aside, McLaglen was asked if he once said that a "Baroness Von... " was trying to lure him into the bedroom. There was laughter in the courtroom. He insisted he didn’t. After the trial, there was agreement that McLaglen would leave the country.

Was this "Baroness Von... " Emily Hall Tremaine? Was she a witness in this case? How much did she know?

1938 - Max’s plane crash / death

See the texts


Max von Romberg plane crash

Front page of Asbury Park Sunday Press with press photo showing the wreckage of the plane crash causing the death of Max von Romberg in New Jersey in 1938. He was flying his plane to a polo match, and was also quietly securing American citizenship and expatriating from Germany, unknown to the public. See 5 June 1938 entry below.


In June 1938, Emily’s husband Max von Romberg was flying a plane from New York over to New Jersey to attend a polo match and the plane crashed. He was reported to have died instantly. The cause of the crash, given the dangerous Nazi / anti-Nazi context in America at that time, is suspicious. There were conflicting eyewitness reports, and the crash seems to never have been properly investigated, during the earlier age of the aviation industry.

EMILY AS "EMILY SPRECKELS", ORIGINAL IT GIRL, 1939-45

Key mass media coverage events


Emily Hall Tremaine

1939 - Emily marries Spreckels

See the texts


In August 1939, Emily Hall Tremaine (previously Emily von Romberg), married sugar heir Adolph B. Spreckels, Jr. in the famous, or by then, notorious Spreckels clan. Shortly thereafter, World War II began in Europe, and the US remained neutral until the Pearl Harbor attack in December 1941.

This was a wickedly dangerous and bizarre time with Nazi German officials, etc., still going in and out of the US, and there was some level of support for Nazi Germany within America. During this time, spying by various persons with access took place.

The announcement of the marriage sometimes was reported on the front pages of American newspapers, and sometimes with an interesting cropped, column-wide photo of Emily. Bizarrely it was from an earlier photo of Emily with Max in 1936 at Aperitif magazine, and just one year earlier, he died in a suspicious plane crash.

See the media coverage across the US and beyond: Emily Hall Tremaine (then Von Romberg) marries Spreckels - publicity outputs, Emily-style.

For more information about Emily’s pre-1945 life, see below section "I. Mystery, danger & misunderstandings: Emily Hall Tremaine in the 1930s".

1940 - Emily & diamonds

See the texts


Note: In 1940, Emily Hall Tremaine, then Spreckels, wore a reported 500k or 1m worth of diamonds to the Beaux Arts Ball in New York. The amount of 1m is estimated at 14.5-220m in today’s worth. (See https://www.measuringworth.com/calculators/uscompare.) It is thought her doing this was partly a statement that she had arrived into a higher profile tier after marrying a Spreckels, and at the same time, a piss take. She was reported to have had armed guards with her.

This "media event" shows "unity / variety" across the media and is pre-Warhol. The difference is, Emily, a self-made master of media, was doing it across wire services, and had done so since about 1935.

For more information about Emily’s pre-1945 life, see below "I. Mystery, danger & misunderstandings: Emily Hall Tremaine in the 1930s".

Emily Hall Tremaine

Sample media coverage from the 1940-41 divorce case, Emily vs. Adolph B. Spreckels, Jr., that shocked the United States for 4-6 months with a multiple news cycle. It is thought that Emily pursued this— battling Nazi support in elements of American high society and business— not only against Adolph, but his wider sphere, in consultation with Ellis M. Zacharias, head of US Pacific area naval intelligence. Further research will provide clarity. (See the listings below for 7 September 1940 and 10 December 1940 for more information about these news clips.)

Emily Hall Tremaine divorce

1930s California publicity queen Emily Hall Tremaine (previously Spreckels) sued her husband for divorce just a year after marriage, occupying American newspapers for months with allegations of his pro-Nazism and spousal violence. While specifically directed at him, what known impact was there regarding his family’s hotel, shipping and other interests? Was this a wider attack on pro-Nazism in America, in connection to US Naval Intelligence publicity strategies? Does the 1940 presidential election have anything to do with this?

1940 - Emily fights back, again

See the texts


The judge threw out the counter-allegations made by Adolph against Emily, but this was reported in less than 5% of the volume of American newspapers that reported on Adolph’s counter-allegations. The reporting was mainly in California, perhaps as Christmas was coming up. The reputational impact on Emily, partly being in this cloud and also his counter-allegations— without context— continues to this day.

"… In an affadavit, filed by Mrs. Spreckels in answer to Spreckels’ counter charge that it was the former Baroness von Romberg, not he, who was the pro-Nazi, the society beauty claimed that the swastika she removed from her Montecito home decorations was just an old Indian design and had no Germanic meaning.

She said she had to remove any semblance of swastikas around her mansion because of Spreckels’ pro-Hitler actions. His activities as a pro-Nazi were attracting too much public attention, she said…

Mrs. Spreckels explained that the statue of Hitler was nothing but a toy sent to the Baron von Romberg as a joke shortly before his death in an airplane crash several years ago…" (Excerpt from above.)

Santa Barbara Museum of Art Von Romberg Gallery

After Emily curiously dismissed the divorce case, two months later and three years after Max died in a suspicious plane crash, the Santa Barbara Museum of Art with the Von Romberg Gallery opened in June 1941. Max and Emily were accused to have been pro-Nazi publicly by Spreckels just nine months earlier, reported all over US media for 2+ months. A portrait of Max hung in the gallery. Some in the Santa Barbara’s elite, and also those in the Western US art museum world, were in attendance for the opening. An associated museum social event was held at her villa. A key speech was given against Hitler and what he stood for. (None of this regarding the museum opening, Emily and Max was known until 2023.)

After the divorce case, Emily and Adolph lived apart. She was only able to secure a divorce from him until after the Yalta Conference towards the end of World War II. Why? Spousal privilege?



1945 - Emily secures divorce

See the texts


After Emily Hall Tremaine (then Spreckels) dismissed the divorce case in 1941 for unknown reasons, they did not reconcile but lived apart. In 1943, she attempted to divorce him again, and then she dismissed that. After the Yalta Conference in 1945, Emily finally divorced Adolph. It’s unclear why there were delays, but it is thought to involve practical WWII elements and spousal privilege.

EMILY AS "EMILY HALL TREMAINE", THE ART COLLECTOR, 1945-87

1945 - Emily marries Tremaine

See the texts


After Emily finally divorced Adolph B. Spreckels, Jr., shortly afterwards she married Burton Tremaine and more or less then officially moved to New York and Connecticut. This was the last social-oriented wire service media round for Emily. Afterwards, her media skills were focused on her developing art / design collection with Burton. In essence, she moved the media frame away from herself to her artworks.

What’s interesting given her previous media / comm practice is we don’t see photos of her or around the wedding. None also were in her scrapbook. Given the shocking 1940-41 media waves with re-used photos, it suggests in this case that she opted out and was moving on, and/or this was desired by Burton as a businessman, etc., in other words, to keep it as low-key as possible.

"Why is the Washington Gallery of Modern Art showing an exhibition of ’20th century painting and sculpture’ culled from private collections in Connecticut? The answer according to the catalogue introduction written by Gerald Nordland, the Gallery’s director, is: because Emily Tremaine picked up a suggestion made at a meeting of the Gallery’s National Advisory Committee ’and romanced it into a full-scale program with one state’s private collections to be reviewed at the beginning of the season each year.’ ..."

"... It is no exaggeration to observe that Burton and Emily Tremaine taught several generations what it meant to be great collectors... Among living artists almost every work was acquired within the year of its creation... Although proceeds from earlier disposals were turned back into the collection, during recent years some sales benefited instead the foundation which will one day be formed from Emily Tremaine’s estate. The foundation, which will further several of her interests during her lifetime, will benefit from the results of the present sale..." (Excerpt from above.)


ADC: It is important to note here the vagueness of "benefit" here. Referring to Emily Hall Tremaine’s public probate file and will held in Madison, CT, in principle, she owned half of the art collection, which was specified to go to her named foundation. The other half was owned by Burton Tremaine. As specified in her will, most of her substantial personal assets also went to her foundation. Also note that the foundation remit at that time, as stated by Atkinson, should be confirmed. (16 October 2021.)

[Hard copy version title: "Bidding a fond farewell; gavel to signal end of an era", pp. G1, G4.] (Updated 2 November 2021. Q00476; Q00668).

"Works of art from the Connecticut estate of Emily and Burton Tremaine, considered by museum directors, dealers and art writers to be one of the greatest private collections of 20th century art in the world, will go on the auction block beginning Tuesday at Christie’s in New York...

Proceeds from the auction will be split between the family and the foundation set up by Emily Hall Tremaine, who had no heirs. The foundation will likely benefit the arts as well as other organizations, such as Planned Parenthood, a favorite charity of Emily Tremaine...." (Excerpt from above.)


ADC: It is important to note here that in Emily’s 1987 will, she states she owns half of the art collection. As understood, this means half of every artwork, which created understandable challenges when dividing the estates of Emily and Burton. Referring to Emily Hall Tremaine’s public probate file and will held in Madison, CT, by the time of this second auction, with approval by a judge, works were organized into groups. Also, the bulk of Emily’s personal assets went to her named foundation. Also note that the foundation remit at that time, as stated by Atkinson, "likely", should be confirmed. It is not clear where he got this. (16 October 2021.)

"Emily Hall Tremaine and her husband, Burton, the CEO and owner of the Miller Company in Meriden, Connecticut, are mostly remembered as collectors of cutting-edge 1960s art and for the prices commanded when some of their works were sold at auction in 1988 and 1991. But [in c. 1945-55], Mrs. Tremaine was the art director of the company, and she organized a traveling exhibition, “Painting Toward Architecture”, for the developing Miller Company Collection of Abstract Art. The show, which featured some of the biggest names in modern art and architecture, was seen in [28(+) venues] across the U.S. between 1947 and 1952. Combining experimental art and design crossovers, it also achieved a very sophisticated fusion of art, design, and publicity. The show and related initiatives were dynamic, pioneering, and entrepreneurial..." (Excerpt from above.)

Finally, like almost every other art institution, the Museum’s programming is supported by the philanthropy of wealthy patrons. In this case, it’s the Emily Hall Tremaine Foundation, named for a woman whose family owned sheet metal factories that [partly] funded her passion for collecting art...

In a sense, every art museum is a “museum of capitalism” insofar as they are filled with works donated by patrons who accumulated fortunes through the exploitation of workers. It’s probably not surprising that the Museum doesn’t address the origin of the Tremaine family’s wealth, critically or otherwise... " (Excerpt from above.)

H. Regarding the Emily Hall Tremaine papers at the Smithsonian

The initial, proposed, no. 1 external action by artdesigncafe for the legacy of Emily’s work was the digitization of the Emily Hall Tremaine papers at the Smithsonian, donated in 2005. In this way, researchers would have timely, cost-effective access to the important, surviving documentation that Emily kept regarding hundreds of artworks, particularly regarding purchases and extensive lending for exhibitions and facilitating artwork inclusion in numerous and varied publications. The papers went online in c. January 2020 for the public.


Read more, see resources


However, upon review, it became clear that the organization of the papers faced several key challenges and a far more thorough finding aid was needed for far more effective, timely dissemination of important information. So, progress is halfway there. In the meantime, researchers are welcome to contact artdesigncafe for advice on where to find specific documentation. Please note, at this juncture, it can take considerable time, but surprising research jewels are in there. Also note, at times documentation was added to the papers after 1987 when Emily died and at times may require additional confirmation.

Emily Hall Tremaine

Cropped view of page in Emily Hall Tremaine’s 1930s scrapbook showing multiple media coverage on her and her work at Aperitif magazine. In August 1935, about the age of 27, Emily (von Romberg, previously) was threatened with a defamation claim; in response she staged—or agreed to— a photo-op, in which she scratched out the complaintant’s name and photo on remaining magazine copies. This was then reported by multiple media outlets. (Note the white slips; she appears to have hired a clipping agency to gather her press coverage.) Was Emily’s work a little-known predecessor to Andy’s Warhol’s interest in multiple media coverage? How familiar was Warhol with news photos and reports about Emily c. 1940 in the Pittsburgh newspapers— and others— via wire services? What did Warhol know about Emily when he met her— and knew her?


I. Mystery, danger & misunderstandings: Emily Hall Tremaine in the 1930s

artdesigncafe.com maintains a growing offline archive of materials, over 4000 sources to date, related to the work and life of Emily Hall von Romberg - Spreckels (then Tremaine) prior to 1945, based in Southern California. Please note there are many factual errors in her history, absence of important contexts, and a number of misunderstandings as shown in the accumulated documentation.


Read more, see resources


Two books in 2001 & 2019 showed sensation finds and raised legitimate questions about Emily’s stance in the Nazi / anti-Nazi battle in California, 1935-40. First she publicly looks anti-Nazi, then less so with questions, then fiercely anti-Nazi publicly again. What happened? Was she threatened by Germany? See the 2019+ research project looking into this with newly found sources showing her defense.

In 1940, Emily Hall Spreckels (later Tremaine) filed for divorce and courageously stood up and publicly blasted her second husband after a turbulent year-long marriage: "no" to his alleged, extreme spousal violence and "no" to his support for Nazi Germany. Three months after she filed, her husband slammed back with his own pro-Nazi allegations against Emily. As they were two famous socialites, this was reported in almost every media market across the United States, if not all of them, over five months.


Key sources:

[1] Previously unknown, a number of articles show Emily’s in small group gatherings with the US Pacific navy head of SoCal intelligence, the famous Ellis M. Zacharias, the main recipient of SoCal Nazi intelligence. He was known to send his intelligence on Nazi and Japanese activity to Washington. Emily may have indeed been an informant and occasional spy. Her brother-in-law worked for Zacharias as his second-in-command. This is currently being more closely examined via declassified intelligence. (Found March 2023.)

[2] There are numerous news reports on the case in historical newspaper databases in libraries. As with any historical case, best practice is to pull the court record, as it is often a primary source and contains important information. This was pulled by artdesigncafe in July 2021. Inside was a once-thought secret deposition and details regarding Emily’s defense, which presumably Emily put there in consultation with her lawyer.

See the court record with Emily’s deposition. (Emily is finally enabled to speak for herself on these matters!)

[3] See: Associated Press (Santa Barbara, Feb. 15). (16 February 1941). Spreckels’ charge wife is pro-Nazi stricken out. San Francisco Examiner, p. Section I, p. B. (Found August 2023.)

"Adolph Spreckels’ charge that his wife, Emily von Romberg Spreckels, was pro-Nazi was stricken from his answer to her divorce complaint by Superior Judge Ernest D. Wagner today." (Excerpt from above.)

[4] Looking at complicated history in a climate of danger and threats means that not everyone is able to speak directly. Some people, in fact, feel that way regarding certain topics today. This can also affect news coverage.

Reviewing 1935-39 newspapers in America, one quickly sees (a) threats of forced repatriation for German passport holders (like Max and Emily); (b) threats of asset seizure; (c) threats to family and friends in Germany; (d) those taking US citizenship considered to be "traitors"; (e) "traitors" against Nazi Germany beheaded in the country, etc.

In short, this is just the start of a complicated history during a complicated time.

New archival research (2023) has found that Emily Hall Tremaine (previously Spreckels) was in close contact with Ellis M. Zacharias (right), head of Pacific US Naval Intelligence regarding Nazi & Japanese threats to California and the US around 1940-41. Zacharias sent his intelligence to FBI director J. Edgar Hoover in Washington, DC (center).

J. Emily and fashion design over the years

Another area under historical dust concerns Emily’s interest in fashion design over six decades. Numerous designs were donated to the Wadsworth Atheneum, Hartford, CT, but it is understood that most of the designs have yet to be fully processed. Additional donated designs have been identified in the collections of the Phoenix Art Museum, Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York. Some of the designs have been featured in fashion exhibitions at museums.

Emily and fashion over the years is a completely unexplored research area— and another research opportunity. Some designs in museums are listed below in the extensive art and design compilation. (Search "fashion" on the page.) Please note that the very limited number of photos of known designs, and photos of Emily in the fashion press and society news in the 1930s, were informally reviewed by a fashion design historian colleague at artdesigncafe in 2019. The assessment was that the designs were "solid Vogue wear", in other words, designs that would have been seen in Vogue over the years.



K. Developing list of artworks in the former collection and related designs

The number of artworks and designs relating to the former Tremaine Collection and Miller Company Collection of Abstract Art is extensive. In total, the number of works of art was over 700, including those related to the Tremaines in some way, and the number of designs has not yet been determined. By c. 2019, artdesigncafe created a working list of the Tremaine work; a definitive list is still in development. This was donated as a gift, to Emily and Burton, to Emily’s foundation.)


"Throughout history the same historical circumstances that have produced great artists have also produced great patrons and collectors, and the Tremaine Collection— taken as a whole— can in itself be seen as an artistic creation of the first magnitude." [Gregory Hedberg in "The history of the Tremaine Collection", p. 23. In The Tremaine Collection: 20th century masters: The spirit of Modernism (1984). Catalogue accompanying the exhibition.]


Spotlighted artists’ and designers’ work with Tremaine contexts:

K.1. Theo van Doesburg. Space-time construction #3, (1923).

K.2. Jasper Johns. Three flags, (1958).

K.3. Piet Mondrian. Victory Boogie Woogie (1942-44).

K.7. Frank Lloyd Wright. Architectural design (drawings) for Meteor Crater, AZ (1947-49; unbuilt).


UPDATE, July 2022: The full, precise list of artworks and associated designs (product design, architecture, interior design and fashion design) is certainly not yet known, and with current projection, this mystery may continue for decades.

A handful of further spotlighted works are below.

However there are the following (in-process) lists that contribute to a definitive list: (a) Emily’s list of artworks in her "black book" in her Smithsonian papers, (c. 1980), noting that this is a c. 1980 snapshot of the collection roughly at / after that time; (b) works listed and mentioned in the Tremaine Collection catalogue (1984), noting there are errors with occasional works listed that are recorded as not received by at least two collections. So, anything should be confirmed. (Emily’s health may have deteriorated into the 1980s); (c) works at times were traded for others and that scope not fully known, especially before 1980; (d) one artwork shown in a Wadsworth Atheneum installation of Painting toward architecture is unidentified. It looks like maybe a (third) Van Doesburg, but unable to confirm; (e) the full range of artworks that Emily owned prior to 1945 are not fully known; (f) a copy of a working list in an Excel sheet was developed and done, and a reference copy donated to Emily’s foundation c. 2019 with a number of works indicated as unconfirmed or problematic in some way.

Further, it is essential to note that all listed titles, precise sizes of artworks, and materials, should be confirmed with current standards.
