I think I would use author since the catalog is textual. Compiler could be another possible choice. Corporate creation trumps personal creation, so if you have both you would do 110 for corporate creator and 700 for the person. And I would probably use either author or compiler for that too.

I don't see a specific relationship designator for this case in Appendix I. So would "author" be appropriate? If there is also a person who is presented on the title page as author of the catalog, would the museum get the main entry with $e author and the person an added entry, also with $e author?
