Princeton University: “Inside Marquand Library: A Century of Collecting Harlem Renaissance Art”
From the Princeton University Library:
Last summer, the Marquand Art and Archaeology Library purchased the “Savoy Ballroom,” a rare 1986 book of reproductions of Richard Yarde’s watercolor paintings of the famous dance hall that opened in New York’s Harlem in 1926. This most recent acquisition adds to a century of collecting art publications related to the Harlem Renaissance.
Over the past hundred years, Marquand has sought to preserve the art historical record of the Black artists who lived and worked during this period that spanned roughly 1918 to 1935.
