Scope & Content

Series consists of material collected about Yugoslav artists by Kenneth Coutts-Smith. Coutts-Smith had a special affinity for artists of this nationality, writing in a 1968 Sculpture International article called "Three Yugoslav Sculptors" that "Yugoslav contemporary art is the most highly developed of any in the Socialist countries of Central and Eastern Europe." He felt that the type of Marxism practiced in the Balkan's allowed for an earlier and freer development in painting and sculpture.

Series includes invitations, catalogues, photographs, correspondence, exhibit lists, and other material related to artists from the area formerly known as Yugoslavia.
