126 volumes on 42 artists.

Few libraries can afford the staff time to create and maintain major collections of clippings. Yet such collections are one of the richest sources of information for art historians since much of what is written about artists in their lifetimes is in newspapers, magazines, catalogues, and other ephemeral publications.

The Artists Scrapbooks in the Library of the Museum of Modern Art are particularly wide-ranging, the clippings, catalogues, exhibit invitations, reviews, and commentaries collected by MoMA Library staff until the early 1970s representing highly significant source material on major twentieth-century artists that cannot be found in any other library.

The clippings are from a very broad range of international newspapers and magazines including, for example, clippings on Picasso from Moroccan newspapers. The invitations, small catalogues, and other ephemera are equally varied reflecting the Museum's role as a patron of modern art in the post-war years.
