Historical Note | A Finding Aid to the Miscellaneous art exhibition catalog collection, 1813-1953

Miscellaneous art exhibition catalog collection, 1813-1953

Historical Note

In 1979, the American Antiquarian Society donated several hundred exhibition catalogs and art-related printed material to the Archives of American Art (AAA). The Society had received most of them over a long period of time, many of them addressed to the director, Charles Brigham. For several years subsequent to the donation, AAA sporadically added exhibition catalogs to the collection from various sources. Some of these additions are annotated in the hand of Walt Kuhn and are presumed to have been part of his papers in the Archives.
