Note:

1. Resource Library is a publication of Traditional Fine Arts Organization. An easy way to identify specific texts is to use Resource Library's search feature, as articles and essays are fully indexed. Since American art museums often focus on local art history, an index to assist in identification of articles and essays with a regional focus is useful. See Resource Library's Sources of Articles and Essays Indexed by State within the United States for a handy guide. Since 2001, when an article is published on an artist, Resource Library lists at the end of the article links to its previously published articles on the artist. Distinguished Artists, in turn, updates its link for the artist to that most recently published Resource Library article.
