Overview

The importance of William Randolph Hearst's remarkable art collection has, over the years, been obscured by the legend and the mystique of the man. Yet fortunately for art historians, antiquarians, museums, and collectors, Hearst's staff maintained detailed records, including photographs, of a great portion of his collection. Now available on microfiche, his record books contain approximately 10,000 entries for all the paintings, sculpture, tapestries, works in gold and silver, furniture, and other decorative objects that he stored in his warehouse in the Bronx. In addition to the record books now at Long Island University, the microfiche collection also contains the catalogs that were published by the auction houses handling the sale of Hearst's art during the Depression.
