Subject: the Still Life essay.

Hi Shana,

I'm sorry I could not see see that the Still Life essay was published from 2001. It's was not in the list for Judith in the Author Index so was invisible from that review. I'll fix that now. As for the images, when they were sent to TFAO they would have been sent for publicity purposes as there is a section of the page devoted to publicity for the exhibition. We can move the images to the publicity portion if needed.





I found the essay she refers to here: 

How shall I respond?

Our Curator of Education noted that the Still-Life catalog is already on the TFAO web-site with the illustrations.  Do I need to worry about getting permission from the owners of the paintings to have them on the web-site?

Hello Shana,

The Luks Watercolor essay was copyrighted by Canton so you would have to be in touch with them.  I am fine with your using it.  The catalog has long been out-of-print.       

The following are fine as the WMAA has copyright: 

   "Valley of Work: Scenes of Industry in Western PA," American Art Review February/March 1996 

   "Treasures from the Westmoreland Museum of American Art," American Art Review January/February 1999. 

   "Still-Life Painting in Southwestern Pennsylvania," American Art Review July/August 2001

     This essay was written prior to our current data base so we do not have the entire text electronically.  The essay could be  scanned if you wish. 

The text from Different Views is under my copyright, not Columbia but I would not want you to reprint this since the book is still being actively sold.  You can print the excerpt American Art Review. 

Hope this helps.

Same with this one.  I'll count these in.

A special TFAO emphasis is building an archive of material, authored by scholars and other informed individuals, beneficial for the study of art history in the United States. As a public service, without charge to readers, TFAO annually publishes a number of scholarly texts relating to American representational art in its publication Resource Library.

American Art Review, ISSN 0092-1327, is published on paper and noted for its scholarly content by both senior authors and younger scholars. Tel 913.451.8801. The time period focus of American Art Review is from the Colonial era through 1970. The first issue of Volume 1 of the magazine was published in September, 1973. Publication was suspended with Volume 4 in November, 1978. Publication resumed with Volume V in the Summer of 1992 and continues to the present. In the 19th century there was a journal with a similar title, The American Art Review: A Journal Devoted to The Practice, Theory, History and Archaeology of Art edited by S.R. Koehler.

From time to time, TFAO contacts copyright owners of American Art Review articles and requests permission to reprint catalogue essays from which the articles were derived. -- without illustrations -- in Resource Library. As an alternate, TFAO may obtain permission to reprint the American Art Review articles without illustrations.

Currently TFAO volunteers and contractors are reviewing articles published in American Art Review from 1992 through 1998 in alphabetical order by author's last name. Contractors enter into an independent contractor agreement with TFAO for processing specified texts. For information on contracting opportunities please click here.
