This series contains exhibition catalogs, magazines, newspaper clippings, pamphlets, postcards, and other printed materials related to the career of Gifford Beal.
Exhibition catalogs are for group and solo exhibitions by Beal, with a couple of exhibitions by others represented. A 1938 catalog contains sketches, presumably by Beal, and a few of the other catalogs contain annotations. Single sheets torn from catalogs of group shows are filed at the end of the exhibition catalog file.
Magazines with cover art by Beal include
Town and Country
,
Christian Herald
, and
The Spur
. Clippings contain articles about Beal's exhibitions and reproductions of his artwork. Where found, entire issues of periodicals are filed separately. Pamphlets on artists and art history are primarily small editions produced by Frederick Keppel and Co., which contain etchings of artwork. Reproductions of other artists work such as Fourain, Daumier, Ingres, Degas, Dufy, and others include clippings, prints, and postcards, some of which are annotated with handwritten messages.
The bulk of this series has been digitized. For longer published works, only the covers, title pages, and pages relevant to Gifford Beal have been digitized. Additional printed materials are found in Biographical Materials and Subject Files.
