About the Directory
The Archives Directory for the History of Collecting is a pioneering resource created to help researchers locate primary source material about American art collectors, dealers, agents and advisors, and the repositories that hold these records. The database is a work in progress that is regularly updated with information contributed by both institutions and individuals. For more information about the directory, contact Samantha Deutch, Assistant Director of the Center for the History of Collecting. For other news and related activities visit the Center for the History of Collecting.
The Center for the History of Collecting gratefully acknowledges Melvin R Seiden, the Billy Rose Foundation, Townsend I. Burden, Peter Blanchard, DeCourcy E. McIntosh, Juan Sabater, and an anonymous donor for their generous support of this project.
