Artwork records were created by Sara Mazo Kuniyoshi to document works of art created by her husband. Files mostly include photographs of artwork with annotations regarding title, date, sale, and provenance. Some files also include correspondence regarding the exhibition, sale, or authentication of specific works of art, notes by Sara Kuniyoshi, exhibition history, and published reproductions.
Files are arranged based on Sara Mazo Kuniyoshi's original order. Glass plate negatives which were found within the files were separated into preservation storage containers and are closed to researchers.
