Oral history, 1991.

Castelli discusses his background in Europe and early experiences in the art market. He describes his first visit to The Museum of Modern Art and the relationship that developed after World War II between his gallery, the Museum, and Alfred H. Barr, Jr., Director of Museum Collections (1947-67). Castelli recalls the first Jasper Johns show that took place at his gallery in January 1958, and Barr's enthusiastic response to it. He covers the Pop Art, Minimalist and Conceptual periods, and discusses in detail the Painting and Sculpture Department under the direction of Barr (1929-47), William S. Rubin (1973-88), and Kirk Varnedoe (1988 to present) and its association with his gallery.
