About this artwork
Seven scrapbooks contain newspaper and magazine clippings dating from 1929 to 1944 from publications across the United States. All of the clippings are related to mural paintings or painters active throughout the country. The first three books include an index to the artists in that book. Each scrapbook has artists’ names and significant topics underlined within the text.
Collections may be accessed in the Franke Reading Room of the Research Center at The Art Institute of Chicago, by appointment only. For further information, consult the FAQ.
