Feminist Art of Sylvia Sleigh

The papers of figurative realist painter Sylvia Sleigh (1916–2010) document her life, career, and the larger context of contemporary feminist art. Born in Wales, Sleigh moved to the United States in 1961 with her husband, art critic Lawrence Alloway. Sleigh's paintings of nude males in traditional odalisque poses remain her best-known works. Archive highlights include sketches, photographic preparatory studies, documentation of paintings, and ephemera relating to women artists.

Album of Drawings by Jacquet and Roussel

This bound album of 68 drawings contains chalk and pencil studies of antique sculpture and Renaissance and Baroque paintings. The drawings were produced by two French artists about whom very little is known: Jacquet—a student of Louis de Boullogne the younger (1654–1733), Director of the Royal Academy of Painters and First Painter to King Louis XV—and Roussel, Jacquet's uncle.
