Series 4: Artist Files , 1936-2004
4.6 Linear feet
Boxes 2-6, 9

Artist files represent over two hundred artists whose works were purchased, sold, traded, or donated, or whose works were considered for purchase, by Tremaine. Artists range from modernists Georges Braque, Paul Klee, Jean Arp, and Marcel Duchamp, to pop and contemporary artists such as Andy Warhol, Mark Rothko, Yves Klein, Dan Flavin, Michael Heizer, and Jim Dine. Records consist primarily of correspondence with galleries and museums who handled the work of artists Tremaine was interested in, as well as records on restoration of artwork, invoices and receipts, printed material, and photographs, negatives, and transparencies of artwork. Overall there are only scattered letters from the artists themselves, including Christo, Patty Cousins, Sonia Delaunay, Jim Dine, William S. Duterer, Michael Heizer, Robert Irwin, Jasper Johns, Le Corbusier, Sibyl Moholy-Nagy, and Philolaus. There are also three folders of correspondence and sketches from Barbara Valenta.
There is significant research and documentation on the provenance, restoration, and sale of Piet Mondrian's Victory Boogie Woogie, which was sold in 1988. This includes a folder of correspondence with Perle Fine, and related material, regarding Tremaine's commission to make two interpretations of Victory Boogie Woogie which was left unfinished at Mondrian's death in 1944.
Materials are arranged alphabetically by surname of the artist.
This series has been digitized in entirety with the exception of blank versos of photographs, duplicates, and some publications which have had only title pages and relevant pages digitized.
