Series 8: Photographs , 1950s-circa 1990s
1 Linear foot
Boxes 50, 53, OV 71

Series consists primarily of photographic prints, with some negatives and slides. Photographs of exhibition installations of various artists and galleries include Tal Streeter at Ame Gallery in 1965, Walter De Maria at Paula Johnson Gallery in 1965, and Andy Warhol exhibitions at Leo Castelli, Stable Gallery and Ferus Gallery.
One folder of photographs of artists includes photos of Marcel Duchamp, Lyman Kipp (by Hans Namuth), J. J. Lebel, Sheldon Machlin and Robert Murray. Also found is a photograph of a street scene with a man identified as Red Grooms standing on a rooftop. This photo was possibly enclosed with correspondence to Lippard but the correspondent is not identified on the photograph.
A folder of movie stills includes photographic prints of Hollywood actors and actresses from films such as Jane Eyre, National Velvet, and Wuthering Heights. Actors featured include Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, Joan Fontaine, Sophia Loren, Laurence Olivier, Elizabeth Taylor and Spencer Tracy with Katherine Hepburn among others. The photographs were pasted on what appear to be scrapbook pages.
Additional photographic material can be found throughout the collection, particularly in Series 2.
Photographs of exhibitions are followed by photos of people, and photos of works of art arranged alphabetically by artist. Although few are dated, the photographs found here were generally produced between the 1950s and 1970s. Folder labels for photographs of works of art reflect the dates of execution.
