I concur with Patricia Phagan. The Georgia Museum of Art does grant permission to reproduce the text (but not the illustrations) from her introduction to The American Scene and the South as long as full credit is given to the museum.

I had received this email before the one I just responded to, re: the Rachel Perry article from 2007.  I will add it to the list as well, but perhaps we should stop adding now, for the reason previously expressed.

Hi Shana,

I found another article by Patricia Phagan:  "American Mural Drawings of the 1930s and 1940s" American Art Review January-February 2007 (Volume XIX, Number 1)....




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.
