COLLECTION INFORMATION:

General Descripton of Artist Files Collection
Printed ephemera such as private view cards, artists' statements, CVs, press releases, listings, reviews, newspaper and magazine clippings, invitations, correspondence, flyers, leaflets and posters relating to contemporary art. The coverage of this predominantly British collection dates back to the 1950s, with London-based artists and galleries particularly well represented. It is constantly being added to and is a source of information on new and lesser known artists, and the changing gallery scene in the UK.

The collection incorporates the contents of Prof. Norbert Lynton artists' files (donated 2008) and a selection of material from Jasia Reichardt's working files (2010).
