5.2 Linear feet
Boxes 19-24

Primarily reflecting Rosenblum's work as Stephen and Nan Swid Curator of 20th-Century Art at the Guggenheim, exhibition files are comprised of a variety of materials, including correspondence, lists of works, two sound recordings and transcripts of interviews with James Rosenquist, photographs, proposals, reference materials, two digital art inventory lists, catalog drafts and outlines, and clippings of reviews. Notable exhibitions include French Painting, 1774-1830: The Age of Revolution (1974), Picasso and the War Years: 1937-1945 (1998), 1900: Art at the Crossroads (2000), Norman Rockwell: Pictures for the American People (2002), Best in Show: Dogs in Art from the Renaissance to the Present (2006), and Citizens and Kings: Portraits in the Age of Revolution, 1760-1830 (2007). Also included are digital photographs of Norman and Irma Braman Collection exhibition.
A few files of exhibitions curated by others are also found in this series and may have been compiled because Rosenblum was consulted about artwork selections, or contributed to the planning of the exhibition.
Files are arranged chronologically by exhibition date.
