INSTITUTIONAL INFORMATION:

Institutional/Departmental Overview
The work of the Research Institute takes its place within the collaborative context of the Getty Center as a whole, which includes the collections of the J. Paul Getty Museum, the international projects and research of the Conservation Institute, and the philanthropic outreach of the Getty Foundation.

The Research Library at the Getty Research Institute is an independent research library focusing on the history of art, architecture, and archaeology from prehistory to the contemporary era. Presently, the collections are strongest in the history of western European art and culture in Europe and North America. In recent years, the library has expanded to include publications on the arts of Latin America, Eastern Europe, and selected regions of Asia and Africa.

The general library of secondary sources holds more than one million volumes of books, periodicals, and auction catalogs. The Photo Study Collection contains approximately two million study photographs of art and architecture from antiquity through the 20th century.

Special Collections include rare books and photographs, manuscripts and archives, prints and drawings. Thematic collecting priorities for these original materials are Historiography of Art, Architecture, and Archaeology; Collecting and Display of Art, including the business of art, dealers, and galleries; Modernism, the 20th-Century Avant-Garde, and Postwar Production; Visual Culture; and Cultural Exchange.

Primarily works on paper, the collections include artists' journals, letters, sketchbooks, and teaching materials, architectural drawings, artistic biographies and treatises, early guidebooks and travel literature, emblem books, festival books and prints, reproductive prints, and the archives of art dealers and galleries.

Current collecting initiatives have targeted developments in Southern California, with particular interest in documentation of Los Angeles’ important role in the postwar art world.

2) Collectors Files overview:
The Collectors Files comprise about 20,000 folders with information on international collectors, dealers, auctioneers, and art institutions from the late Middle Ages to the present. The files are particularly strong in the history of collecting in Western Europe but also include information regarding collectors and collections located around the world.

The Collectors Files typically contain published and unpublished material, such as photocopies of inventories, sales catalogs, articles, genealogical references, scholars' notes, and similar resources. Information and an online index is located at
http://www.getty.edu/research/conducting_research/provenance_index/collectors_files.html

Information regarding specific inventories or works of art may have been transcribed in the Provenance Index databases online http://piprod.getty.edu/starweb/pi/servlet.starweb?path=pi/pi.web

3) Leonardo Borgese collection:
Leonardo Borgese (Italian, 1904-1986) studied painting at the Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera (Milan, Italy) but turned mostly to teaching art history and writing during the 1930s. From 1945 through 1967 he joined the Corriere della Sera, the main Italian newspaper, as art critic. Especially when he was working in this capacity, he assembled a large quantity of ephemeral materials, focusing on the whole range of art history from the Renaissance through the 20th century.

Individual artists as well as art movements are represented with newspaper clippings, announcements and invitations, offprints, brochures, pamphlets, and exhibition catalogs. The ephemera are often annotated by Borgese and reflect his point of view, at times animated with sharp attacks, especially against the avant-garde and the artistic experimentations of the mid-20th century decades, in Italy and internationally, which he found quite controversial.

Borgese Collection information and individual records for Borgese ephemera are listed in the Getty Research Library online catalog at http://www.getty.edu/research/conducting_research/ and in OCLC with specific item level information and item count.
