The Brooklyn Museum Libraries have recently acquired over 160 books concerning Mexican, Haitian, and Spanish Colonial Folk Art, 92 of which are unique to NYARC libraries’ holdings and over a dozen that are not in WorldCat at all. This exciting gift comes to us through the generosity of Margery Nathanson, proprietor of the Grass Roots Gallery de Artes Populares, which was in operation from 1980 to 1990.
W. Graham Arader III, a noted art dealer and collector specializing in prints, maps and rare books generously donated seven richly illustrated books to the Frick Art Reference Library.
We are thrilled to receive Thea Westreich and Ethan Wagner’s library. These books will enhance the Brooklyn Museum’s Library especially in the areas of modern and contemporary art. For more information about this donation, please view the press release.
