Series 1: Correspondence , 1975-2005
(Boxes 1-7; 6.4 linear feet)

Correspondence spans the life of the gallery and contains incoming and outgoing correspondence with collectors, potential clients, galleries and museums regarding appraisals, consignments, donations, exhibitions, general inquiries, loans, and sales.
The series is arranged as 2 subseries:
  • 1.1: Alphabetical, 1975-2005
  • 1.2: Subject, 1979-2004
1.1: Alphabetical, 1975-2005
Alphabetical correspondence includes incoming and outgoing correspondence with collectors, potential clients, galleries, and museums regarding inquiries, consignments, and sales. The files of Executive Vice President Susan Menconi (1993-1998) and Gallery Manager Michael Mikulay (1996-1997) are included, as well as scattered gallery receipts and invoices, information sheets for artwork, and photographic materials. Correspondence from 1985-1990 is poorly represented.
The bulk of the alphabetical correspondence was originally grouped by year(s) and filed alphabetically. The original order has been maintained, with general A-Z correspondence filed first in chronological order, followed by folders filed alphabetically by correspondent's last name or organization name.
