Series I. Correspondence, 1955-1983

Physical Description: 17.09 linear feet (41 boxes)

Scope and Content Note

Correspondence between Galleria dell'Ariete and artists, dealers, galleries, museums, collectors, and critics in Europe, the United States, and Japan between 1955 and 1983, including letters received, and copies of letters sent. Among the highlights of this correspondence is the witty, eloquent, exchange between Monti della Corte and her friend and colleague New York art dealer Leo Castelli. With the shared objective of raising the profile of American artists in Italy and Italian artists in America, the two exchange strategic letters and telegrams about collectors, artists, and other dealers, chronicling the flow of paintings back and forth across the Atlantic. Other American colleagues who appear in the correspondence are Betty Parsons, Paula Cooper, and Martha Jackson. During her periods in New York, Monti della Corte wrote almost daily to gallery staff about meetings with artists, and they sent news of developments in the Gallery. These letters too are full of information about the developing market for American art in Europe and the collectors, like Giuseppe Panza, or Joseph Pulizer, who were to create a lasting legacy in collections that would ultimately find their way into contemporary art museums.

Arrangement note

The files are organized in a variation of the way they were received from the gallery: first by region, then by decade, and then in alphabetical order by the names of the persons or organizations involved. Note that this latter category was rather idiosyncratically applied by the gallery. If an entity does not appear under the correspondent's last name, it may be searchable by the name of the pertinent corporate entity, or by the last name of the subject of the correspondence, such as an artist. Correspondence regarding a gallery that comprises a dealer's name is filed by the dealer's last name, e.g., Betty Parsons Gallery is filed under "P". Correspondence with shippers and insurance companies are mixed in with that of artists, collectors, critics and editors of art magazines. Selected names are listed under each date range.

Series II. Photographic documentation, 1955-1979, undated

Physical Description: 8.88 linear feet (24 boxes)

Scope and Content Note

Series comprises photographs, negatives, transparencies, and miscellaneous related printed materials depicting artwork, artists, and exhibitions at Galleria Ariete, Rowan Gallery, art fairs, and elsewhere. The general files (Subseries II.A.) create a visual picture of 1960s international art at a point in time when that world still had many national barriers and when the collective aesthetic was poised between Abstract Expressionism, Pop, and Minimalism. Subseries II.B. focuses on the works exhibited by the Galleria's stable of artists, some of whom are captured in studio shots. Subseries II.C. contains many intriguing and beautifully shot portraits of the artists and of Beatrice del Monte, some by well-known photographers such as Ugo Mulas or Hans Namuth. Among the highlights are photographs of Monti della Corte with Leo Castelli and their two prize winning artists at the Venice Biennale of 1964: Robert Rauschenberg won the prize for best foreign artist, and Andrea Cascella won for best Italian artist

Arrangement note

Arranged in three subseries, each in alphabetical order by the artists' last names. The first subseries contains photography of all the work by artists associated with the gallery, however briefly; the second subseries includes photography of exhibitions held in the gallery, and often also contains the exhibition brochure; the third subseries concerns various fairs and biennials. Negatives, color transparencies, and color photographs are housed separately from the black-and-white photographs, and are arranged in alphabetical order by the artists' last names.

Series IV. Clippings, catalogs, publications, 1955-1977, undated

Physical Description: 15.29 linear feet (13 boxes; 2 flatfile folders)

Scope and Content Note

Series comprises clippings, catalogs and posters related to exhibitions at the gallery. There are also small files of postcards, leaflets, and mock-ups of promotional material for the gallery. Of particular interest are the elegant catalogs the gallery produced for each exhibition, and which are bound together in volumes that preserve their insightful essays, exquisite design and photography. The clippings are also invaluable for the critical appraisal of the gallery's shows at the time they appeared, and for biographical information they provide about some of the artists. A case in point are the files on Enrico Castellani's involvement with the Red Brigade.

Arrangement note

Clippings are arranged in numerical order by the exhibition number. Catalogs are arranged in chronological order by year.
