Dear Kara Passage, 

Traditional Fine Arts Organization (TFAO) is a non-profit organization dedicated to furthering education in American art through advocacy, publications and research. A special TFAO emphasis is building an archive of significant texts, 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 articles and essays relating to American representational art in its publication Resource Library. The home page for TFAO is located at <http://www.tfaoi.org>. A list of published authors is at <http://www.tfaoi.org/aa/4aa/4aa348.htm>. For Resource Library's home page please see <http://tfaoi.org/resourc.htm>.  

In 1977 the Montclair Art Museum published a book entitled The American Painting Collection. Thank you for speaking with me about the Introduction by William Gerdts and clarifying that the Montclair Art Museum is its owner. TFAO will be pleased to reprint the introduction (without illustrations) in Resource Library.

Could you please confirm the Montclair Art Museum's permission to reprint the introduction (pp. 19-26) as owner of the text, without any accompanying illustrations, through a reply to this email addressed to me and to info@tfaoi.org? We further invite you to send a brief author's biography to accompany the text.  

Best regards,

Stacey Wittig
