Series 1: Artists' Files , 1945-1986
3.5 Linear feet
Boxes 1-3

Artists' files include: biographical material; correspondence; sales of artwork; guest lists; notes and writings; business-related material; printed matter, e.g., exhibition catalogues, brochures, clippings, press releases, reproductions; and photographs of artwork and artists.
Biographical material contains curriculum vitae and artists' statements. Correspondence consists of letters, postcards, greeting cards, and telegrams between Viviano and artists, their family members, collectors, dealers, museum representatives, art historians, and others. Correspondence, for the most part, concerns sales, market valuations, and scheduling of exhibitions. Letters reflect the personal relationships that Viviano developed with many of the gallery's artists and collectors. Correspondence also includes business-related materials such as invoices, shipping receipts and statements, invoices, sales and expense reports, and miscellaneous legal claims.
There are substantive files on Renato Birolli, Robert Broderson, Joseph Glasco, Manabu Mabe, César Manrique, Luciano Minguzzi, Ennio Morlotti, Bernard Perlin, Daniel Rice, and Bernard Rosenthal. Miscellaneous artists' files include biographical materials, checklists, consignment sale slips from the Grand Street Settlement, a typescript on Max Beckmann, notes, lists, and exhibition catalogues.
The series is arranged alphabetically by artist and materials within the folders are in chronological order. Artists' files for which numerous documents are found are further divided by type of material.
