Leo Castelli Gallery records circa 1880-2000, bulk 1957-1999

The Leo Castelli Gallery records measure 226 linear feet and date from circa 1880-2000, with the bulk of the materials dating from the gallery's founding in 1957 through Leo Castelli's death in 1999.

Also included are records for the subsidiary firms of Castelli Graphics and Castelli/Sonnabend Tapes and Films.
