Series 1: Artists' Files, 1944-2000, bulk 1960-1998
11.6 linear feet
Boxes 1-12, 15-16, OV 17

Artists' files document the exhibitions and careers of the Heritage Gallery artists through biographies and background information; correspondence regarding artwork sales, consignments, exhibitions, and appraisals; clippings; exhibition announcements and catalogs; financial and accounting records; inventory and price lists; photographs and slides; and other records. Especially rich are the folders of correspondence with artist William Gropper.
About half of the series are materials related to Charles White, documenting the Heritage Gallery's sole representation of the artist, as well as the friendship between Horowitz, White, and White's family. Materials include biographical information; correspondence in rough chronological order with clients, museums, and galleries regarding artwork sales, exhibitions, and loans; inventory lists; and voluminous printed material such as clippings, exhibition catalogs, press releases, and flyers.
The folders are arranged alphabetically by artist's last name; folders containing various artists are filed at the end of the series.
