Series 5: Personal Business Records, circa 1921-1965
(0.3 linear feet)

This series documents expenses, income, painting sales, taxes, and artwork inventory of Arthur Dove.
An accounting ledger details Arthur and Helen Dove's personal and business expenses and contains notes and a sketch in the later and end-pages of the volume. Receipts from the period of Dove's lifetime document the purchase of their boat, art supplies, and a painting at a 1923 O'Keeffe exhibition. Receipts for sales of Dove's paintings are mostly from the Downtown Gallery in NY, and mostly date to after Dove's death in 1946. Gallery receipts record the price, title of work, date of sale, and often the buyer's last name.
Also found are tax records and an undated inventory of artwork at An American Place gallery and in storage.
