The First Hundred Years (1859-1959) : Index and Biographical DictionaryBook - 1999
Richly illustrated with colour plates of paintings from institutional and private collections as well as black-and-white photographs, this reference guide is a comprehensive study of early Oregon painters. Listings for over 500 Oregon artists offer biographical details and note where their work was shown and where it is now held. Additional essays on early art museums and art organizations, art galleries and exhibition spaces, and the Federal Art Projects of the 1930s show how the state created itself artistically.
