Collector without walls : Norton Simon and his hunt for the best by Sara Campbell Abdo( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The American art collector Norton Simon assembled his collection of more than 8.000 artworks in just thirty-five years. In 1966, with no permanent home for the growing collection, Simon created his 'museum without walls' programme - lending works to American museums - which continued until 1974, when his collection was housed in the Norton Simon Museum in Pasadena in the United States. The history of Simon's art collection, including the most interesting acquisitions and deaccessions. It describes Simon's early life and business career, chronicles the collection's development until his last purchase in 1989, and analyzes the collection and the collector. A fully illustrated catalogue of artworks, including those deaccessioned, completes the account. The book draws from the archives of the Norton Simon Museum and transcripts of interviews with friends, colleagues, art dealers, and museum professionals, as well as unpublished writings by Norton Simon

Director's Office Records by Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The Director's Office records 1955-1977 are comprised almost entirely of business correspondence between the Director of the museum and other people and institutions though other records, such as receipts and publications, are occasionally present. During this nascent phase of the museum the Director's Office handled almost all aspects of business and consequently these files reflect a wide spectrum of museum concerns including publicity, acquisitions, finances, staff hiring, construction, and expansion of the museum. Some files are devoted to individuals and institutions while others are labelled with subjects such as Inquiries, Acquisitions, and Employment. The subject headings and content of the materials remains quite consistent throughout the years, even through the tenures of different Directors
