To: Shana Herb Johannessen <shana...

Dear Ms. Johannessen:

Thank you for your interest in my work. I do not wish to have my article included in your publication.


Percy North

SJ had said:" I understand that you are not the owner of the article; however, I hope that you will consider giving us your permission to pursue publication of this article and reveal to [TFAO] the name of the copyright holder.  I understand your concern that you will be further exposed to dealers of Gutmann paintings pursuing appraisals, a service you do not provide. However, I hope that you will find that the benefit to students of American art outweighs the potential inconvenience.  In any case, I appreciate your agreeing to consider my proposition." -- The author may have had a bad experience in the past with a reader of the article.

Hi Shana,

...Regarding the Percy North article adapted from the 26-page exhibition catalogue, Beacon Hill Fine Art could be the owner as it was the exhibit organizer - or the author, or both. We have had good luck with smaller art dealers and galleries. I previously overlooked the mention of the catalogue and the note at the end of the article that it is an adaptation. Yes, it would be best to reprint the catalogue essay as first choice.

Hi John:

I noticed that the Percy North article is adapted from a 26-page exhibition catalogue.  Is there some reason you didn't specify for me to pursue the catalogue?  I saw your note about the other Gutmann catalogue, also authored by North and published by a commerical press, but that one is 192 pages, so I feel certain they must be unique publications.  Let me know. 




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.
