My Pinterest path crossed with the Archives of American Art’s Pinboards, commenting upon my Margarets Board, and what fun that was! The About page has a quote that sums it up: “…a repository of inestimable value, like the art world’s Fort Knox.”– contemporary art collector and friend of the Archives. And I didn’t even know it existed! To think I was a librarian!
This Werner Drewes Christmas card, 1971, and Gloria in Excelsis Deo Card, 1977, are part of the collection of the Archives of American Art and just two of over 16 million items in their collection, from sketchbooks, manuscripts, photos, and oral histories of artists, collectors, museums, galleries, critics and scholars. Now a part of the Smithsonian, and a resource for those wanting to know more about American Art. A kind of American Art nirvana for an ex-librarian, present-artist. Go play!
