Illustration Sources

Most pages on this site have thumbnail illustrations, for which the source (artist and current location of the work) are given on the page concerned, with notes that apply to the painting as a whole.

The thumbnails are reproductions of parts of a small proportion of illustrations appearing in popular art books. In compliance with the fair use terms of copyright, as generally understood following the Sonny Bono Copyright Extension Act (1998) — the Bridgeman Art Library Ltd. v Corel Corporation judgment (1999) notwithstanding — the publications that form the source of the illustrations are acknowledged below. The page numbers refer to the first appearance of a thumbnail on the site.
