Works of Art: Inventory and Object Files [series]

The Works of Art: Inventory and Object Files, 1962-2014, bulk 1975-1987 (1 linear foot) are a set of inventory files describing Bentley art objects. Documentation includes Painting Report Forms, catalogue sheet, notes on the piece of artwork and its acquisition, appraisal, artist biography notes and articles, some photographs of the artwork, and some correspondence about the art work. These files were initially created by archivist May Davis Hill and were not maintained after her departure. One file from 2014 details the framed artwork displayed at the Bentley as of that date.
