Panza (Giuseppe) Papers
Series VII. Photographs, ca. 1959-1990 13.5 lin. ft.
Series VII contains photographs of works in the collection, duplicating the photographs in Series II.A, with separate boxes of duplicate photographs filed numerically; the Panzas' furniture and tapestry collections, and original Ugo Mulas prints. Two separate boxes include photographs of Panza and his family, and Panza and his wife attending art related functions. 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.
box
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.
box
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.
