Ephemeral Catalogs

Marquand possesses a large collection of single-artist exhibition, collection, dealer, and group exhibition catalogs--mostly from the 1930s-90s--and not listed individually in the main catalog.

Many of the single-artist exhibition catalogs have been cataloged in batches and are listed in the library catalog as Exhibition catalogs of FIRST NAME, LAST NAME.  Catalogs for lesser-known artists are currently largely un-cataloged and held in boxes located off-site. This collection also includes materials related to specific collections (by name), and includes ephemera like press releases, postcards and the like.  A list of names is available, and catalogs may be requested for consultation.

Dealer catalogs and group exhibition catalogs are organized by city, and then institution (dealer, museum or gallery). A list of cities is available, and catalogs may be requested for consultation.

Please contact us to request any of these catalogs.
