SMU Central Libraires Digital Archives of Texas Art

The Central Libraries of Southern Methodist University maintains an online archive of images relating to early Texas art. This is a cooperative venture with the Bywaters Collection of the Hamon Arts Library at SMU, the Meadows Museum of SMU, the Dallas Public Library, and the Harry Ransom Center at the University of Texas at Austin -- all of whom have contributed high quality images. It is possible to search by several parameters including the name of the artists. There are three distinct online collections at this site which pertain to early Texas art.
