Unprocessed Archives

From the early 20th century until its closing in 2016, the Wildenstein Institute assembled a vast collection of documentation and archival materials to support catalogue raisonné research and the work of its publishing imprints such as Beaux-Arts and Gazette des Beaux-Arts. In an effort to increase access to these archival collections, the WPI offers a fee-based scan-on-demand service, which allows researchers to purchase digitized copies of materials from the finding aids listed below.
