Tyler Green published this extraordinary and valuable compendium of deaccessioned works. Among the museums that Green has covered (with the painstaking work of linking to the auction house posting on each work) are the Hirshhorn, St. Louis’s Kemper Museum and St. Louis Art Museum, the Walters Art Museum in Baltimore, Delaware Art Museum, Carnegie Museum of Art and the Montclair Museum. Here’s a sample of the linking:
The Palm Springs Art Museum has been a busy deaccessioner in recent auctions. This season it’s selling a vaguely Duchampian 1957 Robert Irwin painting, a Kenneth Noland and an Alexander Liberman.
The Art Institute of Chicago has not been a prominent deaccessioner in recent seasons. It is offering a minor Julian Alden Weir portrait, Louis McClellan Potter (2), Anna Hyatt Huntington, Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney (2), Walter Ufer, Pauline Palmer, Bessie Potter Vonnoh, and five paintings by Arthur B. Davies: Summer and the Mother-Hearted, Evening Among the Ruins, Lake and Island, Sierra Nevada, Dirge in Spring, and Leda and the Dioscuri.
