Photographic material consists of approximately 14,752 black and white negatives and 16 contact prints. The photographs depict works of art, portraits, artists' studios, and installation views. The negatives represent over 260 visual artists who were working and exhibiting in New York, N.Y., circa 1950 to 1975. Notable artists include Joseph Cornell, Willem de Kooning, Dan Flavin, Helen Frankenthaler, Donald Judd, Franz Kline, Roy Lichtenstein, Louise Nevelson, Isamu Noguchi, Frank Stella, and many others.
