Over the years, Vose Galleries has produced countless catalogues that highlight works from our exhibitions and provide historical information about American artists. Most of our publications include original research from the Vose archives, a collection of Vose Galleries' records that dates back to our founding in 1841. We have an extensive collection of archival images — both of artwork we've handled, and of the artists themselves. Our comprehensive resource library includes Vose correspondence with artists from as early as the 1860s, many of whose work we continue to handle, and complete exhibition history and sales records. We enjoy sharing our knowledge and insight about the artists and their work. Our annual newsletter, Vose ArtNotes: A Guide for Collectors, has been a favorite among our clients for its teaching articles and scholarly approach. A checklist of available catalogues and prices is listed below.
