Ms. King:

We understand from authors that American Art Review does not usually own essay copyrights. The AAR essay may be a condensation or an original essay. That is for the author to determine.

Mr. Hazeltine:

The book we published with Mr. Dyer does not contain this article.  I will forward your message along to him.  Unfortunately, I do not have an e-mail address for him so it will have to go by regular mail.  I hope this will not hold you up too much. 

Have you tried contacting the American Art Review for permission?

Dear Mr. Hazeltine:

I received this request for permission to use an essay from Robert Dyer but I don't know which Dyer work or essay you wish to use.  It is " A Brush with History: 175 Years of Art in the Boonslick" in AAR Vol VIII, No 5, Nov. 1996

 I also need to know more about the publication of the TFAO's open access journal.  Is the journal in print form or electronic? Or both?

Electronic - please see on the Web.  

As soon as I get the specifics I can begin researching your request to find if we control the rights or if Mr. Dyer does. If he controls the rights to the work you need, I will pass the request along to him.

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 are reviewing articles published in American Art Review from 1992 through 1998 in alphabetical order by author's last name.

An article's status page is linked to the Author Study and Index page listing the American Art Review article(s) being studied.
