Arranged in encyclopedia format and based on the definitive collection of Texas art -- the paintings in the Witte Museum of the San Antonio Museum Association -- Art for History's Sake covers the period from 1845 to 1945.More than seventy artists are represented, with biographical entries arranged alphabetically. All of the important paintings are beautifully illustrated, and a provenance, with listings of exhibitions and publications in which they have appeared, is included. Thanks to Cecilia Steinfeldt's decades of experience and research, Art for History's Sake will be the foundation on which future exhibitions, studies, and surveys of Texas art and artists will be based.
