The Art of the Old West - From the Collection of the Gilcrease Institute

Selections and Text by Paul A. Rossi and David C. Hunt

Published by Alfred A. Knopf, New York

First edition, Hardcover, 1971, 336 pages

 

From the Preface

During a long and active career as a private collector, Tulsa’s Thomas Gilcrease accumulated a vast inventory of materials documenting the history of North America.  Beginning about 1910 and continuing throughout the 1950s, he traveled widely in search of works of art, books, and artifacts relating to this quest to include, in time, nearly the whole range of American achievement and experience.

Today the Thomas Gilcrease Institute of American History and Art, owned and operated by the City of Tulsa, continues that original aim, offering to visitors from all parts of the nation and the world the opportunity to explore its assembled treasures.  Included in its collections, at the present time, are more than 5,000 works of art, approximately 200,000 prehistoric and historic artifacts, and over 60,000 books, manuscripts, and related documents dealing with successive periods in the growth of the United States.
