Arrangement of the Records

This collection is arranged chronologically.

Scope and Contents of the Records

The records in this series relate to the publication of several books and exhibition catalogues from 1973-1998, but predate the formation of a formal publications department. These files primarily contain first drafts of essays published in the catalogues and correspondence, invoices, and purchase orders from writers, editors, printers, and others involved in the creation of these publications. There is also correspondence regarding reproduction rights for the use of images from outside of the Clark Collection. Much of the correspondence is addressed to Mary Jo Carpenter in the Office of Membership and Public Relations and Mary Ann McSweeny in the Curatorial Office. Material relating to the 1998 publication of Farewell to the wet nurse: Etienne Aubry and images of breast-feeding in eighteenth-century France and the 1997 publication of English, Irish, and Scottish silver at the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute account for approximately half of all the material in this series. The remaining files relate to an assortment of Clark publications from the 1970s through 1990s.


History of the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute

In 1950 Sterling and Francine Clark chartered the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute as a home for their extensive art collection. Opened to public in 1955, the Institute has built upon this extraordinary group of works to become one of the most beloved and respected art museums in the world, known for its intimate galleries and stunning natural environment. One of the few institutions in the United States that combines a public art museum with a complement of research and academic programs, including a major art history library, the Clark is now a leading international center for research and discussion on the nature of art and art history. Building upon the founders' legacy, the Institute has recently unveiled its master plan for the twenty-first century, which fosters the Clark's commitment to providing space for its expanding research and museum programs while maintaining the unique character of its beautiful rural setting.
