Series 9: Artwork , circa 1925-1991
0.8 Linear feet
Boxes 8, 14, 16, OVs 21-23

Artwork consists of etchings, numerous sketches and drawings in graphite and ink, sketches painted onto clear acetate which Kuniyoshi used for catalogs, two zinc lithographic plates and their corresponding lithographic prints, and a sketchbook. Some of the drawings that Yasuo Kuniyoshi created for the Office of War Information during World War II are in this series. Also found are Christmas cards designed by Kuniyoshi. There is one folder of pencil sketches by unidentified artists.
The artwork is loosely grouped together by medium - etchings, graphite sketches and drawings, ink sketches and drawings, lithographic plates, etc. Most of the artwork is undated, so they have been given a broad date range.
The bulk of this series has been digitized. Materials which have not been digitized include blank pages of the sketchbook and the two zinc lithographic plates and their corresponding prints.
