Series 5: Printed Material , 1940-1987
(Boxes 4-5; 0.6 linear feet)

Series consists of printed material collected and accumulated by Dehner, including exhibition catalogs, announcements and invitations, clippings, art catalogs, programs, and miscellaneous printed material, pertaining to her own work, the work of David Smith, and, to a limited extent, the work of others. Clippings on Smith concern his death in 1965 and posthumous alterations to the painted surfaces of some of his outdoor sculptures (at the hands or through the negligence of Clement Greenberg, one of the executors of Smith's estate), which was a source of some controversy in the art world of the mid-1970s.
Printed material is typically arranged in alphabetical order by type.
