This online Masterworks Series links the artwork featured in the three exhibits and catalogs with selected archival holdings on each artist in the Heard Museum Billie Jane Baguley Library and Archives.
The Masterworks Arts and Artists Series is generously funded by the National Endowment for the Arts.
