The subject files concern American abstract art and Martin Diamond's activities to educate and promote this work, particularly that of the Transcendental painters. The materials include exhibition announcements and catalogs, clippings, business records and loan agreements regarding exhibitions. There also are letters from museums relating to Diamond's participation as a lecturer in connection with exhibitions. Museums involved include the National Museum of American Art of the Smithsonian Institution, The Albuquerque Museum, the Art Gallery of Toronto, and the Boca Museum of Art in Florida as well as some New York area museums. Of particular interest is Diamond's writing explaining his relationship with Phillip Frost, who donated much of his abstract art collection to the National Museum of American Art.
