About the Author Study and Index

The Study and Index contains links, indexed by author name, to articles and essays published online in Resource Library. Each Resource Library article or essay is identified by the date of publication in parentheses following title and author information and is presented with a hyperlink to the text. An example is Indiana Realities: Regionalist Painting 1930-1945 from the Robert L. and Ellen E. Haan Collection; essay by Rachel Berenson Perry (8/19/11) All of the articles and essays relate to American representational art.

As of January 20, 2016, Resource Library has published online 1,383 articles, essays and scripts written by hundreds of listed authors and playwrights.

For each author of an article or essay published in American Art, American Art Journal, American Art Review, The Art Bulletin, Art Journal and The Magazine Antiques during the Study Periods there are listed the related issue numbers - and in many cases - links to texts published outside of Resource Library.

The Study and Index also lists authors with essays in selected exhibition catalogues in the context of Special Projects.
