Subject: Permission to reprint

Dear TFAO:

I hereby grant you permission to reprint the two essays you request:

"Structure as Meaning: Towards a Cultural Interpretation of American Painting," which appeared in American Art Review, Mar/April 1976, pp.  66-78, with subsequent discussion in Sept./Oct., pp. 52-55; and

"Introduction," in Shaping the Landscape Image, 1865-1910: John Douglas Woodward" published by the Bayly Art Museum, University of Virginia, Charlottesville.

I own copyright on both of these, and publishers have no objection to reprinting, as I have copyright.

Please send me copy or internet access when published.

Thank you,


Roger B. Stein

P.S. If you want bio copy:

Where appropriate, TFAO removes full email addresses and private phone numbers out of respect of the privacy of correspondents. Also, TFAO strives to remove from online-recorded correspondence any language of a personal or opinionated nature.

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.

In the project's phase one TFAO volunteers and contractors reviewed articles published in American Art Review from 1992 through 1998 in alphabetical order by author name. For phase two TFAO volunteers and contractors are reviewing articles published in American Art Review from 1999 through 2004 in alphabetical order by author name. Contractors enter into an independent contractor agreement with TFAO for processing specified texts. For information on contracting opportunities please click here.
