Abstract:

The Lawrence Alloway papers span the critic's entire career, including his earliest reviews, notes, and writings in 1940s England. In Series I his assiduous correspondence with Sylvia Sleigh from the early 1950s portrays the workings of his mind and the development of his ideas in the period just before his relocation to America. It also shows his impetuous personality and devotion to the person who remained his closest companion for the rest of his life. Other correspondence is relatively scant, though there are a number of letters from the artist Ray Johnson, and a photocopied set of correspondence between Alloway and Jean Dubuffet.

Series II. Work files reflect the topics to which Alloway repeatedly returned, such as abstract expressionism, conceptual art, pop art, museum politics, realism, women's art, Betty Parsons, and also artists who interested him, such as Audrey Flack, Rosemary Mayer, Robert Smithson, Vito Acconci, Allan Kaprow and Barnett Newman. These files comprise clippings, brochures, notes, and writings, while Series VI. Photographs and slides of art, comprise a visual record of these interests. Series V. Personal contains photographs and drawings of Alloway in his professional life and at home with Sleigh. Poetry by Alloway is included in letters to Sleigh and in Series II.B. Writings.
