A Correction

July 2024
1min read

Through a lack of proper communication between editors, we slipped unhappily in our issue of last August: we failed to credit the institution that owns the two fine pictures, Going to and Returning from the Beach , by George Wright, which adorn the back cover of that issue. This entertaining pair of genre paintings belongs to the Thomas Gilcrease Institute of American History and Art, of Tulsa, Oklahoma, who very kindly allowed us to reproduce them, and to whom we express our regrets. The Gilcrease Institute, founded in 1942, has been supported largely with funds given by Thomas Gilcrease, an oil man of Creek Indian descent who for many years ardently collected art and artifacts having to do with the American Indian. With its scope now expanded to include many other aspects of the American scene, the Gilcrease houses one of the finest collections of Americana in the world.
