California Art History
with an emphasis on representational art
This section of the Traditional Fine Arts Organization (TFAO) catalogue Topics in American Art is devoted to the topic California Art History, one of TFAO's most developed topics.
Articles and essays specific to California Art History published in TFAO's Resource Library are listed first. Following the links to Resource Library articles and essays are a listing of museums in the state which have provided materials to Resource Library for this or any other topic.
Listed after Resource Library articles, essays and museums are links to online resources outside the TFAO website.

Our goal is to present comprehensive knowledge relating to this section of Topics in American Art.
