In some instances pho-
tographs and informa-
tion inside of the award-
winning publication have
never been published
.. before. To ensure that
the content is fresh and
accurate, we have turned
to other groups to share their expertise. In the past, THF has
partnered with the Texas Map Society and the Bob Bullock
Texas State History Museum, among others, to produce publi-
cations that add depth to the state's historical record. The issue
that you have before you now is one of those that we believe
you'll want to keep on your bookshelf-and refer to often.
THF joined forces with the Center for the Advancement
and Study of Early Texas Art to produce this landmark issue
of Texas HERITAGE. The writers are all experts in the subject
of Lone Star art and artists, and they share the stories of these
creative men and women-along with their art and the influ-
ence it has had on our state-with our readers.
On behalf of the Texas Historical Foundation Board of
Directors, I want to thank CASETA for partnering with our
organization to produce this beautiful issue of Texas HERI-
TAGE. This expanded and enhanced publication was partially
funded through the generosity of Red McCombs, whose do-
nation established an endowment meant to ensure the future
of our great Texas history magazine. We thank him for sup-
porting the Foundation's work so that we can guarantee that
the stories of the men and women of our past have a place in

The Center for the Advancement and Study
of Early Texas Art
The Center for the Ad-
vancement and Study of
Early Texas Art is pleased
to contribute to this spe-
cial edition of Texas HERI-
TAGE. CASETA is grate-
ful to the Texas Historical
Foundation for its generous
support of this project.
We want to thank all the
authors who volunteered to
write essays and the private
collectors and institutions
that graciously allowed their
art to be reproduced. We are
indebted to Francine Car-
raro, Mark Kever, George
Palmer, David Spradling,
Valley House Gallery, and
William Reaves Fine Art.
By sharing these glimpses
into the rich history of our .
state's art, we hope that Tex-
as HERITAGE readers will
recognize how CASETA's
goals parallel those of the
CASETA defines "early Texas art" as art produced at least 40
years prior to the present date by artists who were born in, lived
in, or worked in Texas. This rolling definition means that some of
our "early" artists are still creating art in the Lone Star State; a few
of these men and women are featured in this issue.
As more and more Texas art becomes part of our state's his-
tory, CASETA intends to be there to promote this artistic heri-
tage to future generations. Please visit us at www.caseta.org.
