Scope and Content of Collection

The Giuseppe Panza Papers document the Italian businessman's considerable activities in collecting contemporary art. Panza collected works by some of the seminal American artists involved with Abstract Expressionist, Pop, Minimal, Conceptual, Environmental, and Light and Space art. The archive contains material from the time when he began collecting in 1956 up to the sale of the second part of his collection to the Guggenheim Museum, New York, in 1990. The portion of the archive relating to his most recent acquisitions from 1987 onward, remains in Panza's possession.

The archive has letters and other materials pertaining to Panza's various art related activities and much about his museum programs. He contacted many museum directors and Italian officials to garner support for his proposals to create museums utilizing works from his collection. Panza's art collection is documented by correspondence with and about artists and galleries, photographs, small drawings, invoices, loan requests, announcements and invitations, that were accumulated by Panza during the acquisition process and throughout his entire ownership period. There is also much ephemera, photographs and some correspondence with artists that Panza did not collect. The archive also includes a substantial quantity of Panza's writings on art; papers and ephemera related to Panza's associations with museums, galleries and cultural institutions; clippings and photocopies of articles on the collection; and an extensive group of architectural drawings of potential sites for the collection, many with Panza's installation designs.

Indices exist for Series II, III, VIII and Panza's "drawings" collection.

Acquisition Information

Acquired from Panza in 1994.

Processing History

The archive was extensively organized by members of Panza's family. Giovanni Panza, Panza's son, from 1987-1989 divided all the material according to artist and subject. Giuseppina Caccia Dominioni Panza, Panza's daughter, began in 1989 to check Giovanni's previous work, made files, matched photographs to each work and put all the papers into folders and boxes. In 1990 Cristiana Caccia Dominioni as well as Francesca Guicciardi Panza, daughter in-law of Panza, began helping Giuseppina. Francesca checked all of the physical descriptions of the works of the collection. As of 1995, all three women worked three mornings a week in Lugano on the archive supporting the art Panza currently collects. Lynda Bunting at the Getty Center began physical processing and description of the archive March 1994 and finished May 1995.

The leather boxes were handmade by the Rilegatoria Conti Borbone di Marchesifirm in Milan. Four empty boxes and some folders have been placed at the end of the collection for replacements.

Container List

Series I. General files, 1956-1990 36 lin. ft. 94 boxes
Series I contains correspondence and other material primarily relating to Panza's collection, and also about art and culture in general, filed alphabetically by correspondent or institution. Of particular interest are files pertaining to Panza's attempt to install his collection for the general public in museums and renovated villas and factories throughout Europe and the United States (especially in Mönchengladbach, Düsseldorf, Basel, Castello di Rivoli, Vigevano and his own villa in Varese). These files contain much correspondence with museum directors and curators, architectural drawings, and a very large quantity of installation designs by Panza which record a focused and methodical approach to curating the collection. Concurrent correspondence with Beni Culturali officials, lawyers and others document Panza's legal problems associated with changes in Italian cultural patrimony laws and tax codes, which affected the eventual sale of part of the collection to the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (MOCA) in 1984. There is other correspondence with critics, such as Germano Celant and Pierre Restany, and some with collectors, art world personalities and personal friends. Other material documents Panza's affiliations with various cultural associations, institutions and conferences, such as the Amici di Brera and the International Council of Museums (ICOM).

Series II.A. is filed alphabetically and contains files on artists Panza collected, including Carl Andre, Robert Barry, Larry Bell, Louis Cane, Alan Charlton, Hanne Darboven, Douglas Davis, Walter De Maria, Jan Dibbets, Jean Fautrier, Dan Flavin, Hamish Fulton, Douglas Huebler, Robert Irwin, Peter Joseph, Donald Judd, Franz Kline, Joseph Kosuth, Bob Law, Sol LeWitt, Roy Lichtenstein, Richard Long, Robert Mangold, Brice Marden, Robert Morris, Bruce Nauman, Richard Nonas, Maria Nordman, Claes Oldenburg, Robert Rauschenberg, James Rosenquist, Mark Rothko, Robert Ryman, Richard Serra, Antoni Tàpies, David Tremlett, James Turrell, Lawrence Weiner, Douglas Wheeler, and Ian Wilson. Each art work has its own file and is labeled according to Panza's inventory system of the artist's initials and numbered sequentially. Material in the work files consists of invoices; shipping documents; correspondence with galleries and artists; loan agreements; photographs of the work installed at the villa, photographs from galleries and of important documents in the archive; some small drawings and sketches (see especially Larry Bell, Robert Irwin, Sol LeWitt, Robert Morris, Richard Serra and James Turrell); and copies of certificates of authenticity. Work files have many photocopies and photographs of documents intended as cross-references. There are also miscellaneous files of personal correspondence with the artist, gallery correspondence, announcements and invitations, photographs, works not in the collection, shipment and invoice documents and miscellaneous. Miscellaneous personal correspondence files contain letters from artists regarding personal matters, schedule and work updates, installation instructions and theoretical discussions. Miscellaneous gallery correspondence consists of correspondence with prominent gallery owners and directors, invoices, lists of works offered with descriptions and prices, financial arrangements and loan forms. There are original photographs of works solicited by galleries to Panza, sometimes of substantial quantity. Announcements and invitations files contain postcards, brochures, catalogs, posters and artists' books. Every item in each file is numbered sequentially, usually on the verso. Occasionally the numbers have been mistakenly duplicated or skipped. Consult Appendix C for an item-level index. It should be noted that when the index states "drawing" or "certificate" the files generally contain either photocopies or photographic copies. Most of the originals remain with Panza. [N.B. there is a group of boxes at the end of the collection (X1-15, ca. 6 lin. ft.) housing photocopies of certain items by some of the Minimal and Conceptual artists in this series.]

Also contained within this series are glass slides, mostly of the works now at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (MOCA)), slides of various artists' works and some oversize photographs of Minimal and Conceptual drawings in the collection.
243 Family photographs
Substantial quantity of photographs of Panza alone or with family and friends, including 6 original prints by Betty Freeman, 6 by George D. O'Neill, Jr., 13 by Il Giorno and 16 of Panza and collection by Oliviero Zanni.
244 Photographs of Art Related Functions
Extensive quantity of photographs of Panza and his wife attending various art related functions, such as openings, dinners, meetings and group trips. This box also contains a photo of Claes and Pat Oldenburg, signed by the artist (1963), photo by Turrell of the Panza's near the Roden Crater at sunset (1973), 4 photographs of 1961 Kline exhibition at Galleria Civica d'Arte Moderna, Turin, with Frank O'Hare and 36 photographs documenting the making of a film by Jose Maria Berzosa about the collection for French television.
Artist Albums
Twenty albums contain black and white photographs of works in the collection with many in situ at the villa. Most of these photographs are duplicates of prints in Series II.A including photographs which serve as copies of original documents, such as certificates, artists' correspondence and drawings. The last three boxes are photographs of Panza's Primitive and decorative arts collections, photographs of Gino Meloni's work and miscellaneous exhibitions. The photographs were primarily shot by Gian Sinigaglia, Giorgio Colombo and Panza, but some were also by Ugo Mulas in Spring 1961. This series only has Sinigaglia reprints of those originally shot by Panza (see especially Varese installations of Pop art bordered at the bottom with a white strip), and also contains Sinigaglia reprints of those originally shot by Mulas (for originals see box 265). Colombo, Panza's current photographer, holds most of the negatives and has made prints of Sinigaglia's photographs.
