Archivistische beschrijving

Geschiedenis beheer

Many of the catalogues appear to have belonged to Robert Stacey; but these and a majority of the collection had been acquired by book dealer Hugh Anson-Cartwright and were transferred from him.

Bereik en inhoud

This collection consists of exhibition catalogues, posters, invitations and promotional ephemera, primarily (but not exclusively) from Canadian art galleries. The catalogues predominantly feature the work of Canadian artists, with some European and American artists (and minimal representation from Asian artists). The collection provides interesting documentation of the development of Canadian art across the country, including regional focus and to some extent, the development of interest in Indigenous art. In addition, the collection includes some auction catalogues, as well as items relating to advertising; art and design used in industry promotion; and industrial design.
