The Noguchi Museum Archives

The Noguchi Museum’s Archives on the life and work of Isamu Noguchi are comprised of Noguchi’s manuscripts, correspondence, exhibition and project records, press clippings, architectural drawings and plans, as well as objects and artifacts that Noguchi collected during his travels throughout his lifetime.

The Archives house a vast photography collection of over 28,000 images dating from the early 1900s through the present day. Photographs depict Noguchi’s artworks, exhibitions, studios, portraits, and travels in multiple formats.

To request permission to publish a photograph, please email archives@noguchi.org.
