The Index to 19th Century American Art Periodicals is the copyrighted product of Mary M. Schmidt. It indexes 42 art journals published in the U.S. during the 19th century, providing nearly complete coverage of art journals from this period and including nearly 27,000 records. The index is a valuable source of information on popular culture and industry, as well as artists and illustrators, painting, sculpture, drawing, photography, architecture and design, exhibitions and sales, decoration, and collecting.
