Documentary Archives

The Franz Mayer Museum’s documentary archives are available for analysis, classification and study and comprise photographic and written material compiled by Franz Mayer and Wolfgang Paalen, maintaining a close relationship with the former’s decorative art collection and the latter’s painting collection.

The archive is currently undergoing a process of documentation and restoration thanks to the Mexican Archive and Libraries’ Development Fund (ADABI) in order that they are available for consultation by students and researchers interested in Mexico’s history of art and its art market. Exhibitions at the museum and in other spaces have also been carried out.
