Paper Legacy Project

alt text = " "

In 2018, the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Thomas J. Watson Library established the Paper Legacy study collection: a collecting initiative to document the work and histories of prominent professional American decorative paper artists active from the late 1960s to the present.

Works from this collection are being digitized and made available online in reduced size to avoid commercial reproduction. Copyright information is provided in the object descriptions.
