Liberman (Alexander) Photography Archive
Series III. Prints in edition for exhibition, circa 1994-1996 49 Linear Feet (26 boxes)
Prints prepared for exhibitions related to the publications of the books, Then : photographs 1925-1995 (1995), and Campidoglio : Michelangelo's Roman capitol (1994).
The photographic prints in Boxes 119* and 120* below were originally mixed together in one box, labeled "Prints in Edition for Exhibition, 1995-1996." The two different sizes of prints are now housed in separate boxes. The mounted black and white prints in Boxes 124* to 130* below are all of photographs used as illustrations for Liberman's book Then. The prints are finished to exhibition standards, and were presumably prepared for exhibitions in connection with the publication of the book in 1995. Boxes 130*-143*, 376* hold prints for Liberman's book Campidoglio. The prints are finished to exhibition standards, and were presumably prepared for exhibitions in connection with the publication of the book in 1994.
