3.1: Photographs of Artists , 1945-1984

Photographs depict prominent American artists, primarily from New York, from the 1950s until the early 1980s. Artists are shown in their studios or homes, either at work or posing for the camera. Some photographs are solely of studios, homes, or artwork. Artists photographed include Alexander Calder, Stuart Davis, Willem de Kooning, Grace Hartigan, Edward Hopper, Jasper Johns, Lee Krasner, Isamu Noguchi, Jackson Pollock, Robert Rauschenberg, Mark Rothko, and Andrew Wyeth, among many others. Most photographs are black and white, but a few color prints are included.
Photographs are organized alphabetically by artist last name in two sets: 8x10 prints followed by oversized prints. Photographs of groups of artists are arranged at the end of the series.
