Box 20-23, 34, OV 40, 46-47

This series contains books, pamphlets, clippings, magazines, exhibition catalogs, invitations, announcements, art reproductions, programs, postcards, blueprints, and other printed ephemera gathered by Walt Kuhn and his family throughout their lives. Copies of published works by Walt Kuhn are filed here, as well as publications by friends and associates, including inscribed copies of works by Constantin Brancusi, Edwin Bjorkman, Frank Crowninshield, and Alice Garrett.
Exhibition Catalogs are found for Kuhn and other artists. Catalogs are occasionally annotated with reactions to artwork or other notes. For Kuhn catalogs marked with prices and/or buyers, see 4.4: S elected Gallery and Exhibition Files. For catalogs of the Armory Show, see Armory Show Records.
Clippings document Kuhn artwork and exhibitions, art institutions, art trends, collectors, other artists, Kuhn's other projects with the Union Pacific and theater, published life events of people known to the Kuhn's, articles written by friends, Walt Kuhn obituaries, and other miscellany. A significant portion of the clippings filed here are duplicated in other series.
Many of the periodicals in this series contain reproductions of Kuhn's artwork. Promotional Ephemera for Kuhn's publications, lectures, and other appearances are also filed here, along with circus programs and posters, and mailings on a range of subjects. Other printed materials are scattered throughout the collection. See individual series descriptions for details.
This series is partially scanned. Some blueprints, news clippings, exhibition ephemera, printed material containing reproductions of Kuhn's artwork, general promotional ephemera, and other printed material not directly related to Kuhn, have not been scanned.
