Scope and Contents
The papers of Cuban born painter Baruj Salinas measure 0.4 linear feet and date from 1971-1996. The collection primarily consists of letters from friends and artists. Also found are diary entries, scattered financial and business papers, printed material, and photographs. Of special interest in the last series are photographs taken of a visit to the home and art studio of Spanish artist Joan Miró.
Baruj Salinas donated his papers to the Archives of American Art in 1997.
The collection was processed in 1997 by Rosa M. Fernández and the finding aid completed in 2001. This collection, along with numerous other Latino collections, was acquired through the 1996 "Latino Art Documentation Project" in South Florida with funding provided by the Smithsonian Institution's Center for Latino Initiatives.
