 Title:  Wilhelm Arntz collection of rare exhibition catalogs and printed ephemera  
 Dates:  approximately 1900-1985 
 Abstract:  Collected by the German art expert Wilhelm Arntz, the ephemera document exhibitions, sales and publishing of 20th century art mainly in Germany, Italy, and France, but also in other European countries, the United States, and South America. Represented are not only well-established artists but also a profusion of lesser known artists as well as numerous emerging artists who became well-known after the mid 1980s. Among the institutions are European and American art museums and exhibition venues, publishing- and auction houses, printing presses, art fairs, and a vast number of art galleries.

 Title:  Schaeffer Galleries records  
 Dates:  1907-1988, bulk 1925-1980 
 Abstract:  Hanns and Kate Schaeffer specialized in Old Master paintings from all European schools. The records of the Schaeffer Galleries document gallery's stock and business dealings from the early 1920s until the late 1980s, both in Berlin and New York. The core of the collection comprises approximately two and a half thousand photographs of art that was handled by the gallery, which are filed along with documents concerning attribution, provenance, acquisition history, and sales. Card catalogs, lists, and ledgers record artworks sold and purchased and detail transactions with clients. These documents of business dealings are amplified by extensive correspondence with art collectors, museum curators, art dealers, art historians, restorers, and storage and shipping companies. Also included are inventories of private collections, lists of artworks shown at exhibitions held at the gallery, and unpublished albums with photographs of gallery stock.
