Creation: 1934

In the early 1930s, Count Alessandro Contini-Bonacossi began assembling a massive photograph collection of European art to guide him in building his growing art collection. A series of art historians helped organize the photograph collection, sorting the photographs into categories by nation, region, and then by artist name. This notebook contains the original index of artists included in the research collection and the box numbers where photographs of their work could be found.
