Provenance
Leo Castelli loaned printed material for microfilming in 1968. Leo Castelli's wife, Barbara Bortuzzo Castelli, and his children, Nina Castelli Sundell and Jean-Christophe Castelli, donated the Leo Castelli Gallery records to the Archives of American Art in 2007.
Separated Materials
The Archives of American Art also holds items lent for microfilming (reel N68) including printed material. Lent material was returned to the lender and is not described in the collection container inventory.
Related Material
Available in the Archives of America Art are three oral history interviews with Leo Castelli. Paul Cummings interviewed Castelli between May 14, 1969 and June 8, 1973; Barbara Rose in July, 1969; and Andrew Decker on May 22, 1997.
Funding
Funding for the partial digitization of this collection was provided by the Roy Lichtenstein Foundation.
Processing Information
In 1968 small portions of the records were loaned for microfilming in increments. These loans were later included as part of the 2007 gift of the gallery archive. Between 2008-2010, the records were arranged and described to an intermediate level by Kim Dixon and Sarah Haug. The digitized portions of the Exhibition Files and Photographs Series were re-processed by Judy Ng in 2015, with funding provided by the Roy Lichtenstein Foundation.
