Stacey, in accordance with your request, the Milwaukee Art Museum does grant permission to reprint the essays requested in your Resource Library.    As the authors were employed by the museum, we hold the copyright.    As for bios of the authors, we think the most relevant and current information is best found with Who's Who.   Mr. Atkinson is still living and affiliated with the Wadsworth Atheneum in Hartford.   He was the director there for 10 years after his position with our museum.   You might contact him directly for a current bio as well.  Mr.  Taylor is deceased.    If you have difficulty getting information you need, let me know.    Please send me notification and the link when these essays are posted to your site. 

Thanks much for your interest.

In 1969 the Milwaukee Art Center published a book entitled Directions 2: Aspects of New Realism. Thank you for speaking with me about the two essays by Tracy Atkinson and John Lloyd Taylor, and clarifying that the Milwaukee Art Center is their owner. TFAO will be pleased to reprint the two essays (without illustrations) in Resource Library. 

Could you please confirm The Milwaukee Art Center's permission to reprint the two essays as owner of the text, without any accompanying illustrations, through a reply to this email addressed to me and to info@... We further invite you to send a brief author's biography to accompany the text.

Best regards,
