The gallerist, connoisseur, and art enthusiast Richard Bellamy left a lasting mark on the New York art world over four decades, both through his work with the Hansa, Green, and Oil & Steel Galleries and as an independent dealer. Bellamy is remembered for helping to launch and sustain the careers of many renowned artists. To mark the tenth anniversary of Bellamy's passing and the opening to the public of the Richard Bellamy Papers in MoMA's Archives, this exhibition presents correspondence, exhibition announcements, gallery records, and other materials illustrating his enduring legacy.
Organized by Jonathan Lill, The Henry Luce Foundation Project Archivist.
