ART | HvS Collections, Exhibits, Sales (Updated Nov. 7, 2016)

This is a preliminary draft of Hilda van Stockum archives and gallery collections. Her archives are scattered all over the world. My interest is initially just getting as complete list as possible of locations with website links or addresses. Later I or someone else can fill in details about the contents and encourage each location to keep a list of where other sources are, so that followers of HvS's art and writing can track down sources without having to engage in wild goose chases.

Collections with the most substantial volume or value of HvS art or papers are in bold face. I including here a few references to locations focused on HvS's husband E. R. Marlin as well. Donors of art or papers are encouraged to concentrate gifts in places where archives and collections are already located, or at least to notify me so that I can include all locations in this list. Sellers of HvS art or papers may find it useful to identify where previous such sales have occurred.
