October 1, 1999-November 1, 1999
Prepared for Hispanic Heritage Month
As part of the Smithsonian Institution’s 1999 Hispanic Heritage Month activities, the Archives of American Art announced the acquisition of the papers of curator and art historian Giulio V. Blanc (b.1955 d. 1995), and the print publication of the second edition of the Archives’ Guide to the Papers of Latino and Latin American Artists. These resources were made possible, in part, with funding provided by the Smithsonian’s Latino Initiatives Fund.
Through the eleven linear feet of Giulio V. Blanc’s artists’ files, exhibition files, subject files, interviews, and photographs, spanning the years 1920-1995, Blanc’s papers provide a wealth of information on the subject of Cuban art and Latin American art history, and documentation on the work of recent immigrant artists in the United States.
