Traditional Fine Arts Organization (TFAO) has revised and published online at tfaoi.org an updated edition of Art History of Each State within the United States of America. The catalog makes available online -- without charge to the public -- extensive information encompassing American representational art history.

For each state, there are links to TFAO's Resource Library articles and essays followed by: a list of the state's art museums which have provided materials to Resource Library; links to online resources outside the TFAO site, and information about offline resources including DVDs, paper-printed books, journals and articles. TFAO also provides online information on over 200 other topics related to American art.

Tfaoi.org, established in 2003, is an in-depth resource for students, scholars, teachers, writers and collectors seeking further understanding and appreciation of American representational art. The site is an online service of Traditional Fine Arts Organization (TFAO), a non-profit organization dedicated to furthering education in American art through advocacy, publication and research. All TFAO services are provided free of charge.
