Dr. phil. Jochen Hesse (head of the Department of Prints and Drawings and the Photo Archive at Zentralbibliothek Zürich) has expressed enthusiastic interest in the archives of my gallery, and so I have taken him up on his offer to donate them to the library to make them easily accessible to art historians and interested readers now and in the future.
The inventory includes all dossiers of the artists represented by the gallery. Press dossiers on the individual artists, their exhibitions and gallery activities in general are also part of the archive, as are other scripts covering the entire period of activity.
