Collection material mostly pertains the life of Paul Mellon and his relationship with Duncan Robinson, with an emphasis on Mellon's personal interests in horse racing and sporting art.
This collection consists of three notebooks created by Paul Mellon for a “Pictorial Art” class at Yale University during his undergraduate studies (1925-1929). The notebooks include Mellon’s professor’s course material on pictorial art, pictures of artwork, and Mellon’s handwritten notes. The notes include Mellon’s critiques and analyses of the artworks, which span from ancient to contemporary.
The Paintings and Sculpture department records consist of curatorial records dating from 1977 to 2013.
The Prints and Drawings department records document the department's curatorial activities from 1975 to 2018. The collection includes administrative documents, correspondence, acquisition records, exhibition records, and documentation of curators' scholarship and research.
The Rare Books and Manuscripts department records comprise general administrative records, correspondence, and exhibition records. Additionally, there are rare book dealer files that document the acquisition of books by the department.
This collection consists of loan files, special exhibition files, accession files, and black and white photographic prints and their accompanying negatives. The photographs depict objects from Paul Mellon’s bequest.
