Overview

This vast collection covering every aspect of the decorative, folk, and popular arts from textiles to tools, from weathervanes to toys, has been reproduced on color microfiche, making it widely available for teaching and research.

 

"These painters compiled a visual archive of remarkable beauty recording in a form far less perishable and more sensitively interpretive than the color photograph, these American objects, many of which have since disappeared."
J. Carter Brown, Director of the National Gallery of Art, 1969-1992
