From the back cover: "This is the definitive survey of Texas art and artists. Arranged in encyclopedia format, it covers more than a century of the most important Texas and Texas-related artists. Based on the most comprehensive collection of Texas art -- the paintings in the Witte Museum of the San Antonio Museum Association -- Art for History's Sake will be the new standard reference book on the subject for students, scholars, collectors, and art lovers. Covering the period from 1845 to 1950, the collection is particularly rich in nineteenth-century Texas paintings, and this handsomely illustrated study of the collection will add a new dimension to the greater field of American art. Over seventy artists are represented with biographical entries arranged alphabetically. Many of the important paintings are beautifully illustrated in color, and a provenance -- with listings of exhibitions and publications in which they have appeared -- is included."
