So I was giving a tour of the library to the Fort Worth Library’s new director, Manya Shorr, when I stumbled across an anomaly in our artist files collection: a file on Peru-based artist Eduardo Moll. Our collection is peppered with examples like this that reach back to the 1960s when were collecting material on international artists. Now we focus more tightly on U.S.-based artists. I’ll bet many artist files collections have similar surprises, which, after all, is a characteristic that make artist files so interesting. This folded sheet was the only item in the file. The Museum of Modern Art, New York, is the only institution with holdings in WorldCat. Coincidentally, Sherman Clark shares that Moll passed away in January.
