Needless to say, I proceeded to the nearest coffee shop to read it. The committee originated at the annual convention of the American Association of Museums in 1949, where a symposium was held on artistmuseum relations, led by the executive director of Artists Equity Association. Artists Equity, encouraged by meetings with AAM, devoted its September 1950 conference in Woodstock, New York, to the theme of "The Artist and the Museum," planned with museum administrators and curators. Thirty representatives from museums and fifty artists met over two days in groups centered on the following topics: "exhibitions and juries," "artists' participation in museum activities," and "education and community relations." Each group produced a set of resolutions and principles. The conference considered the resolutions and, with some additions and modifications, adopted them. The final resolution recognized the fact that there was still work to be done: "Whereas the mutual interests and problems of artists and museums require more study and deeper probing than were possible in this Conference, it is resolved that the resolutions and recommendations of the Conference be referred for further study and appropriate action to the American Association of Museums, the American Federation of Arts, the Association of Art Museum Directors, the College Art Association of America, and Artists Equity Association, with the recommendation that a joint committee of representatives of these organizations be formed to study the whole question." The proposal was submitted to the five organizations, all of which agreed to appoint representatives. The committee held its first meeting at the Whitney Museum in March 1951, agreeing that it "should be continued on a permanent basis as a joint committee representing artist and museums, to consult on mutual problems." The committee met regularly to debate the Woodstock resolutions and recommendations. In April 1957 they approved revised resolutions-published as The Museum and the Artist. The introduction to the report begins, "Among the thorniest problems
of the art world is the relation between museums and [living] artists." It then describes the process that informed the committee meetings during the previous seven years. The report itself, described as "a proposed code of equitable and mutually beneficial dealings between museums and artists," focuses on three areas-exhibitions, purchases, and community relations-and concludes, "may we add that ours is a continuing committee, which hopes to be of future use to artists and museums in their mutual relations." I searched through CAA's woefully sparse archives and found nothing except a few references in the minutes of board meetings, where there are references mostly along the lines of "the committee has been active, but no report was received." The minutes record that, in late 1963, it was "abandoned" owing to "inactivity." My curiosity was aroused for two reasons: first because most of the issues on which the joint committee deliberated all those years are still relevant today, and second, because CAA president Leslie King-Hammond, at the behest of outgoing board member Lowery Sims, in April 1997, appointed a Task Force on Museums and Not-forProfit Galleries with a mandate "to recommend a program of action for the organization as a response to museum related issues," including, but not limited to, museum membership, needs within museum communities that are not addressed by CAA, and needs within the field (e.g., relations with artists). This task force will be meeting for the first time in October 1997, coinciding with the fall meeting of the Board of Directors. I have contacted the other four organizations that were involved in the original joint committee, and I am encouraged by their interest in learning more. I will report to the Board of Directors and the task force on the fruits of my research. It is my hope that we will be able to convene a new joint committee with representation from the original five organizations, using the 1957 resolutions and recommendations as a starting point for developing a new set of "equitable and mutually beneficial dealings between museums and artists." I'll keep you posted. In the meantime, I welcome your comments and will forward them to the museum task force. Send them to [email protected] - Susan Ball, Executive Director

Annual Conference Update Committee on Women in the Arts to Honor Linda Nochlin The Committee on Women in the Arts wil1 honor Linda Nochlin, Lila Acheson Wallace Professor of Modern Art at New York University Institute of Fine Arts, with its Third Annual Recognition Award. The award will be given at a celebratory breakfast on Friday, February 27, 7:30-9:00 A.M., during CAA's eighty-sixth Annual Conference at the Royal York Hotel in Toronto. The CAA Committee on Women in the Arts, charged with "promoting the scholarly study and recognition of the contributions of women to the visual arts," is privileged to honor Nochlin's achievements, her generative contribution to feminist art history, and her support of women in the visual arts. She joins the ranks of previous recipients Louise Bourgeois (1996) and Agnes Gund (1995), both of whom were recently awarded the prestigious National Medal of Arts. This award adds another tribute to the many Nochlin has received, including honorary doctorates from Colgate University, the Massachusetts College of Art, and Parsons School of Design. Nochlin is the recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship, and, most recently, she has been named the New York State Council for the Humanities 1997 Scholar of the Year. In describing the development of her first "Women and Art" seminar held in 1969 at Vassar College, Nochlin comments, "Nothing, I think, is more interesting, more poignant, and more difficult to seize than the intersection of the self and history."1 Nochlin's work has changed the discipline of art history itself. Her generative article, "Why Have There Been No Great Women Artists?,"2 written in 1971, is a call for a feminist art history. In retrospect, it reads as a blueprint for the project of feminist art
history in its entirety. In 1975 Nochlin, with Ann Sutherland Harris, provided one possible response to her own question, the defining exhibition and catalogue WomCl1 Artists 1550-1950 (Los Angeles County Museum of Art and Knopf, 1976). Beginning with a "refusal to take convention as sacred givens," Nochlin works to recormect what has been understood as dichotomous. She draws on "logic and intuition," the personal and the archival, reminding us of the partial and provisional nature of our knowledge, that is, the situated quality of all knowledge-a shaping tenet of feminist analysis. Nochlin summarizes the dilemma this stance has often presented: "Reading as a woman who happens to be an art historian, I cannot entirely accept the first reading; reading as an art historian who happens to be a woman, I cannot accept the second."~ Nochlin has developed her critical reading in a multiplicity of directions. A partial listing attests to the breadth.and influence of her scholarship: Realism (Penguin, 1971); Women Artists: 15501950; Women, Art, and Power and Other Essays (Harper & Row, 1988); Conrbe! Reconsidered (with Sarah Faunce, Brooklyn Museum of Art and Yale, 1988); The Politics of Vision: Essays on Nineteenth Century Art and Society (Harper & Row, 1989); and The Body in Pieces: The Fragment as Metaphor of Modernifi} (Thames and Hudson, 1994). Nochlin's feminist inquiry has of necessity led to an interrogation of other aspects of identity: "Once you begin to question one aspect of given identity, then all aspects become available for Linda Nochlin
questioning and reappraisal." She has interrogated the notion of Orientalism, notably in her 1983 "The Imaginary Orient,"" and, more recently, she has focused on a recurrent theme in her work, the question of Jewish identity and the Jew in representation. In "Starting with the Self," her introduction to The Jew in the Text, a multidisciplinary collection edited with Tamar Garb, Nochlin begins with the question, "Why do they hate us so?" She characterizes this question as both"an anguished cry" and "a perfectly rational question."5 With this measured provocation, she compels us to confront yet another boundary that has functioned to limit scholarly inquiry. Nochlin's career has been an exemplar of her stated belief th_at "it is a cynical cliche that we cannot effect change, that we cannot make a difference." She reflects back on the influence of her mentors, including her mother, an independent woman, and looks forward to "leaning back and being inspired" by those she has, in turn, mentored. Nochlin emphasizes the communal aspect of the scholarly enterprise: "Art history is a cooperative enterprise performed by many people-all dependent on each other. Originality itself is exaggerated-scholarship is in its essence a cooperative, community activity. Disagreement is an essential part of that community. I have learned from all [perspectives]." Join the Committee on Women in the Arts in presenting Linda Nochlin with our Third Annual Recognition Award and in expressing our gratitude for her invaluable contribution to the visual arts.

CAA NEWS NOVEMIlER 1997
CAA News Electronic Supplement to Upcoming Art Joumal Some time ago, artist Ellen Lanyon from the Art Journal Editorial Board alerted me that the board was interested in putting together a theme issue on the phenomenon known as performance art. At FrankHn Furnace, an avant-garde institution in the Tribeca neighborhood of New York, we have constructed the website "Performance Artists Speak," dedicated to the work of performance artists. The Art Journal Editorial Board viewed my experience working with the tooo or so contemporary artists who have practiced at Franklin Furnace since 1976 to be some sort of qualification for the job of guest editor of the issue, so I accepted. My first thought while embarking on this project was that we haven't heard enough from the artists themselves. Michael Brenson, another member of the Art Journal Editorial Board, agreed. Who cares if artists' statements are biased, passionate, without so-called critical distance? This is primary research material that will only increase in value. I invited a slew of artists to submit statements about their work, but when Art Journal issued a similar call in the summer of 1996, it resulted in a tsunami of responses from all over North America. This meant that I had to cut two-thirds of the artists' statements to accommodate space limitations. Presently posted on Franklin Furnace's website, www.franklin furnace.org, are the statements and photographs supplied by contemporary performance artists who were left out of the issue. Their work may be viewed as a supplement to the Winter 1997 Art Journal issue, PeJjormance Art: (Some) Theory and (Selected) Practice at the End of This Century. At publication time, Franklin Furnace's website will be linked to CAA's site in order to reach a wider audience. - Martha Wilson, Founding Director, Franklin FUJ'J1ace, and Art Journal Guest Editor
Changes to CAA Benefits Package Each year, CAA faces the challenge of offering diverse programs and services, while at the same time keeping membership fees as low as possible. As costs are continually on the rise, particularly in the area of publications, this is an increasingly difficult task. When renewing membership forms this year, returning members will notice that CAA is now asking them to choose between CAA News or Careers as part of the basic membership package. This will allow CAA to limit the escalation. of operating costs and postpone an increase in dues. The electronic version of CAA News, www.collegeart.orglcaa/news/index. html, has been available on the website since January 1996 and will continue to be available with some unique features, including links to supplementary sites. Members may continue to receive both publications for the nominal fee of $10.00, or they may register or renew at one of the higher, contributing membership levels and receive all CAA publications at no additional charge. September CONFU Town Meeting The fourth in a series of town meetings on the topic of the proposed "Fair Use" guidelines was held on September 27, 1997, at Reed College in Portland, Ore. The September meeting, "Copyright Law in the Digital World: Fair Use, Education, and Libraries after CONFU," was sponsored by the American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS), the National Initiative for a Networked Cultural Heritage (NINCH), and CAA, with support from the Samuel H. Kress Foundation. Christine Sundt, visual resources curator at the University of Oregon, and Georgia Harper, intellectual property attorney for the University of Texas System, organized the event. Members of the CAA publications staff were in attendance. Further material on the conference, compiled by Sundt, may be found at oregon.uoregon.edu/.....csundt/pdx.htm. The interim report on the Conference on Fair Use is posted at www.uspto.gov/ web/offices/dcom/olia/confu/.
Advocacy Advocacy News As we go to press, the House-Senate Conference on FY-98 Interior and Related Agencies Appropriation, has recommended funding both the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) and the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) during FY-98. If both houses of Congress approve the conference report, which must be done without amendment, and the President signs the legislation, the NEH will receive $110.7 million, an increase of $700,000; the NEA will receive $98 million, a $1.5 million reduction from FY-97; and the Office of Museum Services within the Institute of Library and Museum Services (IMLS) will receive a 6% increase to $23.3 million, with most of the new funds going to joint museum-library projects. Funding is also proposed at $5.5 million for the National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC) grants program (a 10% increase); $205.165 million for the operating budget of the National Archives (a 4% increase), and $14.65 million for repairs and restoration of National Archives buildings. Significant compromises were required to avoid the elimination of the NEA. According to the New York Times, "the agency's survival crune with a political price: conditions that would give Congress a greater say on how arts money is distributed and a seat at the table where other decisions are made" (New York Times, October 2,1997). Structural changes to the NEA include a state allocation requiring the block granting of 40% of NEA funds, increased from 30%; a 15% cap on the amount of NEA funds anyone state can receive (the so-called anti-New York provision); priority in grant making will be given to projects that encourage education and appreciation of the arts, as well as projects directed at underserved populations; a change in the composition of the National Council on the Arts to include six members of Congress; and a provision calling for assurances that nonprofessional groups can receive funding.

Although the NEA has been the primary focus of the House-Senate conference committee, the humanities community will have a concerned interest in the changes that are being proposed. Of the several provisions that will significantly affect the NEA, the recommendation that the endowments be allowed to solicit and invest funds from new sources will affect the NEH as well. One result of all of the controversy over arts funding has been the ongoing development of alternatives to the current endowment structure, an example of which is the proposed "merged endowment" model. The perception of inequities in state fund distribution coupled by the desire to control the content of publicly ftmded projects have furthered the search for alternatives. Current recommendations represent a point on a continuum that began with a commitment to the production, distribution, access, and infrastructure of the arts and humanities. Today these obligations have narrowed to focus on distribution and education. The NEA and NEH have contributed to the establishment of an arts and humanities infrastructure that was nonexistent before 1965. According to John Sullivan, publisher and executive director of the Theater Communications Group, the NEA has laid the groundwork for a "not-far-profit culture in this country-culture that's not driven by the marketplace, culture which allows artists to explore for other purposes." Growth in both the economy and an increased appreciation by the American public fueled an expansion of the arts and humanities community over the past twenty years. The current funds allotted the NEA and NEH are not sufficient to sustain the variety of arts and humanities organizations that have flourished during this period. For example, as a result of drastic cuts in ftmding, the National Association of Artists' Organizations (NAAO) can no longer receive general operating support. NAAO's executive director, Roberto Bedoya, calls it "death by malnutrition." He accurately observes that "no oth.er part of the government suffers as much from the feeling that 'if I don't like it, why is my tax dollar funding it?' II This touches the heart df the funding debate-if the government funds art, does it in tum have the power
to regulate that art? There are many in the advocacy community who are pushing for both a strong adherence to the First Amendment and the necessity of generous public funding for the arts and humanities. "It is the role of the government to establish policies and incentives that ensure fair and equitable access to the arts. While private-sector support is critical ... it cannot insist upon opportunities being available to all" (Susan Guber, Chair of the Dade County Alliance and former Florida State Legislator, Miami Herald, June 5, 1997). The arts and humanities communities in the United States are often distracted and sometimes divided by the component issues in the funding debates. Clearly, however, it is the remarkably affordable breadth of service and programming offered by the national endowments that "democratizes" the arts and humanities, even while occasionally supporting works that challenge convention. It is worth acknowledging, that even these challenges to convention serve to confirm the reality that we are a nation of diverse beliefs. Challenges serve democracy just as the arts and humanities strengthen and contribute to the economic, educational, and cultural infrastructure of our society. We must say so if we expect such diversity to be recognized by our elected officials and reflected in our national policies. Addendum On October 8,1997, it was reported that Jane Alexander, chair of the NEA, will resign after the current appropriations bill is voted on. Against the wishes of the more conservative members of Congress who had promised to defund the agency, Alexander, with the help of a bipartisan push from the Senate (and, ultimately, bipartisan support in the House), won FY-98 funding that is only slightly less (a decrease of $1.5 million) than funding for FY-97. In so doing, Alexander has enabled the embattled agency to continue its important work and will return to her acting career on a positive note. Censorship Notes On the eve of Banned Books Week, copies of a book of Jock Sturges's photography were destroyed at protests held by a group claiming the work to be
pornographic. Banned Books Week is a celebration of freedom of expression, initiated by the American Library Association's Office for Intellectual Freedom. The protests were allegedly organized in forty locations by Randell Terry, the former director of Operation Rescue. Technology Notes On June 26, 1997, the Supreme Court struck down two provisions of the Communications Decency Act. In doing so it rejected the government's contention that the Internet could be regulated like broadcast media, making it worthy of unqualified protection by the First Amendment. The court also reaffirmed the idea that the law cannot suppress speech that adults have a constitutional right to receive, soley because it may be objectionable to minors. The arts and humanities community is applauding the Digital Copyright Clarification and Technology Act of 1997 (5.1146), proposed by Senator John Ashcroft (Republican, Missouri). The bill would amend the Copyright Act of 1976. The ammendments clarify the extent of liability for individuals and organizations that transfer information via the Internet without control of the content; provide for the rapid response to copyright infringement with the cooperation of copyright owners and online service providers; provide for the use of digital technology in education, research, and library archives, specifically by updating the Fair Use doctrine for Electronic Media; and provide a standard for liability based on individual conduct. Preservation Notes In April 1996 the city of San Francisco transferred jurisdiction of the old Main Library building to the Asian Art Museum of San Francisco for seismic renovation and adaptive reuse as the future home of the museum. The library, which is now housed in a new building, left behind several works of art, including a series of Piazzoni murals, examples of the California Tonalist movement (1890-1930). A major controversy has since developed over where the works should be displayed. Preservationists, the city government, and Asian Art Museum officials continue to be at odds over how to best resolve this issue.

Placement Review During the 1996-97 academic year, there were 1,145 advertisements of employment opportunities in CAA Careers, CAA's positions listing publication. This represents a 14% increase over the 1,004 advertisements run during the 1995-96 academic year. In past years, CAA staff attempted to attribute hiring trends through a review of these position notices. Questionnaires were sent to institutions that advertised requesting detailed information about the search and final appointment. It was concluded that, at best, this information was too generalized to be useful and may, in fact, have been misleading. For this reason, CAA will not compile a statisti-
cal profile of positions advertised until it is able to do so more accurately. We are actively exploring ways to evaluate employment patterns for artists and art historians, as well as to improve CAA placement services to serve the needs of both hiring institutions and individuals seeking jobs. Several components of the CAA Annual Conference, most notably the Career Development Workshops and Artist Portfolio Reviews, will again complement this year's Annual Conference Placement Services. Through these workshops and activities, CAA hopes not only to facilitate the somewhat arduous task of finding a position, but also to help members further themselves professionally.

CAA NEWS NOVEMBER 1997
Reproduction Rights in Scholarly and Educational Publishing Introduction Statement Regarding a National Policy on Granting of Reproduction Rights in Art Historical Publishing Costs associated with research and publication of nonprofit, art historical scholarship have risen dramatically in recent years. Certain causes of this situation are more susceptible of remedy than others. Fees to purchase visual materials for study and research purposes may not be a problem; those for permission to publish the same clearly are. According to the Copyright Act of 1976, codifying the common law doctrine of fair use, reproduction for noncommercial "purposes such as criticism, comments, teaching ... scholarship, or research, is not an infringement of copyright." On this basis no scholar should be subject to charges for the right to reproduce visual material for scholarly purposes. Fees for publication rights are, however, frequently, if irregularly, levied and have been steadily increasing over the past decade. CANs 1995 Questionnaire on Picture Rights, distributed to art museum directors (AAMD's mailing list), museum personnel (a portion of AAM's mailing list), and CAA membership at large revealed that no standard pattern for reproduction rights and fees exists: some suppliers (museums, libraries, archives,
artists, etc.) charge no fee; others charge fees as high as $300 or more, and there are innumerable variations in between. On occasion the fee is waived in response to a specific request from an author; in most instances it is not. In some cases the publisher absorbs the costs of such fees, thereby increasing the ultimate price of the publication in question; in the majority of cases reproduction rights fees are seen as the author's responsibility. These fees are having a profound effect on scholarship. They are contributing to overall rising costs of scholarship in the field; but worse, they may be contributing to an actual decline in the quality of scholarship. That is to say, the presence of such charges undoubtedly inhibits the use of visual support for argumentation. In some documented cases the level of costs involved has resulted in cancellation of an important publication project. The dissemination of knowledge in the form of scholarly research and writing is clearly in the interest of all. Museum curators, archivists,librarians, artists, artists' heirs, and other custodians or owners of works of art, and of the visual documentation deriving from them, recognize that scholarship enhances the potential humanistic value of works of art; they would thus naturally seek to encourage the development and growth of the field. At the same time, institutions are increasingly faced with formidable financial burdens and constraints. It is thus understandable that they should seek to meet these challenges by recovering direct and indirect costs wherever possible. The imposition of fees for reproduction rights for scholarly publications (over and above the cost of the photographs, or other illustrative material) would need to be justified within such an "indirect" cost analysis, and the scholarly community is sensitive to the arguments that have been advanced to justify such charges in relation to commercial use. But it is to be hoped that a clear distinction would be drawn between large and limited press runs. For various reasons it is difficult for the suppliers to undertake a study of this problem. Many individual institutions have developed policies on the question, and devoted careful thought to the problems scholars face, but it has not been possible to arrive at a consistent or entirely defensible set of results. The
scholarly community, with the participation of suppliers and interested parties (representatives of the museum profession, of libraries, of commercial and noncommercial presses and archives, of licensing agencies, etc.), has developed the following policy on the issue. General acceptance of these guidelines will surely serve the best interests of all constituencies, and at the same time strengthen the capacity of the scholar to publish research without inordinate financial burden. As the principles of a strong national policy, the guidelines should serve as a basis for a full and candid discussion of the issues on an international level. Guidelines for Fair Use of Visual Materials in Scholarly Publication and Research The Proposal Whenever possible, institutions that supply visual materials should waive reproduction fees for a scholarly publication. If this should, in some instances, not be feasible, fees should be substantially lower than for a commercial production. Visual materials for scholarly research should be obtainable by scholars from institutional and commercial sources for a reasonable fee. Definitions Visual Materials: Visual materials that may be the source of an image include primary sources, such as original works of art, photographs, molds, architectural drawings, archival holdings, manuscripts, etc., and secondary sources, such as photographs, transparencies (including slides), microfilm, microfiche, film, videotape and disk, and jOUTIlals. Scholarly Publication: Scholarly publications are defined here as those publications that reproduce an image for an educational!cultural purpose and are directed to a limited educational/ professional audience with, for books, a limited press nm of less than 4,000 copies. A scholarly publication with a limited press run under this definition may be published by either a profitmaking or a nonprofit-making or a nonprofit institution. It is expected that in preparing a scholarly work for publication, a scholar
will abide by the rules and procedures of institutions from which visual materials are obtained, and that citations of sources for visual materials published shall conform to those required by the institution or repository. Parties Concerned: The parties concerned in the consideration of fair use and reproduction rights in the publication of visual materials from collections include the following: (1) institutions or collections: nonprofit institutions including museums, libraries, archives, historical societies, foundations, photographic archives; (2) commercial photographic services, commercial photographic archives, photographers, and other suppliers of visual materials; and (3) copyright agencies: agents for artists and artists' heirs who grant permission for reproduction of works of art and to whom royalties may be owed. Ancillary Issues Complimentary Copies: Assuming that publication reproduction fees have been waived (or at least substantially reduced), a complimentary copy of a publication requested by suppliers of visual materials should be provided by the publisher when a significant proportion (5 percent of the total number) of illustrations in a publication derive from the holdings of the institutions in a publication in which the work is of primary importance. When less than a "significant number" of illustrations in a publication derive from an institution or collection, the institution shall be able when requested to purchase two copies of the publication from the publisher at a discount at least equal to that accorded the author. Further Printings and Editions: These guidelines apply only to the first edition. Subsequent printings and editions, foreign language editions, and world distribution, if the total number of copies exceed 4,000 copies, may be subject to additional reproduction/ production fees. Guidelines To the extent possible, fees for an image supplied for scholarly purposes should approximate the direct cost of the production of the image. Fees for publication should be waived or substantially reduced.
At least five different categories of potential fees for visual materials in research and publication need to be considered. They include the following: A. RESEARCH MATERIALS (photographs from originals and publications) 1. Black and white a. Production of a print from an existing negative b. Making a new negative and production of a print 2. Color a. Making a copy transparency b. Making a new transparency 3. Black and white and color a. Making of stills from films B. PUBLICATION 1. Reproduction from originals and publications a. Reproductions from a negative or transparency b. Making a new negative or transparency 2. Reproduction from commercial sources a. Length of rental period b. Fees for extension of rental period c. Fees of duplicating a transparency, negative, or print Commentary on CAA and SAH Guidelines for the Fair Use of Visual Materials in Scholarly Publication and Research The Copyright Act and Annotations to the Doctrine of "Fair Use" Copyright may be defined broadly as the exclusive right by a copyright owner to reproduce, adapt, publish, perform and display a copyrighted work, and thereby to license or exclude others from so doing.l Virtually all nations have copyright laws. The law in the United States derives from Article I, section 8, of the Constitution, which empowers the Congress to enact copyright legislation. Over the years, a number of federal copyright laws have been passed, most recently the Copyright Revision Act of 1976, which went into effect on January 1, 1978. That statute, which was enacted after two decades of investigation and debate by Congress, replaced the Copyright Act of 1909, which was clearly in need of revision under the impact of modern
technology. Among the sections of the law that particularly concern members of CAA and SAH are 107 and 108; in these the lawmakers sought to reconcile conflicting interests of authors and publishers on the one hand and scholars and educators on the other, with special reference to photocopying for research and classroom use. Section 1072 codifies a doctrine of "fair use/' which derives from the common law and which has long served as a basis for court rulings that sanction in certain cases IIcopying (of copyrighted material) without permission from, or payment to, the copyright owner where the use is reasonable and not harmful to the rights of the copyright owner" (Report of the Registrar of Copyrights, Library of Congress, January 1985). The doctrine of fair use is said to be IIone of the most difficult and contrary concepts in the corpus of Copyright Law"3 and "not susceptible to exact definition."'J The report of the Senate Committee on the Judiciary, which comprises a part of the legislative history of the 1976 Act, in discussing Section 107 states: Although the courts have considered and ruled upon the fair use doctrine over and over again, no real definition of the concept has emerged. Indeed, since the doctrine is an equitable rule of reason, no generally applicable definition is possible and each case raising the question must be decided on its own facts. On the other hand, the courts have evaluated a set ofcriteria which, though in no case definitive or determinative, provide some gage for balancing the equities. These criteria have been stated in various ways, but essentially they can all be reduced to the four standards which . .. have been adopted in section 107. Section 107 provides: Notwithstanding the provisions of section 106, the fair use ofa copyrighted work, including such use by reproduction in copies or phonorecords or by any other means specified by that section, for purposes such as criticism, comments, news reporting, teaching (including multiple copies for classroom use), scholarship or research, is not an infringement of copyright. In determining whether the use made ofa work in any particular case is fair use the factors to be considered shall incIude~(1) the purpose and character of the use, including whether such use is ofa
commercial nature or is for nonprofit educational purpose; (2) the nature of the copyrighted work; (3) the amount and substantiality of the portion used in relation to the copyrighted work as a whole; and (4) the effect of the use upon the potential market for or value of the copyrighted work. The factors set forth in section 107 to be used in determining whether the doctrine of fair use should be applied in a given case shape a possible defense by scholars in cases where copyright infringement is or may be alleged against them. They justify our contention that in many cases scholars should not have to pay reproduction fees. Unless the Guidelines are accepted in principle, owners of copyright may well refuse to acknowledge the applicability of the fair use doctrine-even where the use (1) is creative rather than mimetic and productive in an educational sense; or (2) the material reproduced is not a consumable workbook or the like and offers information as opposed to an exhibition or performance; or (3) the work is not violated in a qualitative sense;5 0r (4) reproduction serves only to enhance the value of the work and reputation of its creator. Frequently a request for permission will trigger a charge for reproduction rights; nevertheless the safest course is to obtain permission. In the case of certain materials (especially unpublished materials) it may be necessary to request permissions from more than one source; the owners of the copyright may not be the owner of the copyrighted object. For example, a former presumption that transfer by sale or donation of a material object was accompanied by assignment of copyright no longer holds true, which is one reason that museums are currently active on both sides of the copyright issue.6 Negotiations with Purveyors of Visual Materials The first thing to remember when purchasing visual materials is to indicate your intentions: study/teaching purposes or for publication (immediate or eventual). If you intend to publish the visual materials, you should spell out the scholarly nonprofit nature of the publication and ask therefore that fees be waived. Furthermore, you should
stress that an article is for a professional journal or Festschrift and that you will receive no renumeration, or that a book is to be printed in a limited press run (generally well below the Guidelines figure). Call attention to these Guidelines, the basic principles of which are already acceptable to museums, artists, and photographers, and for whom credit lines are sufficient recompense. Although publishers normally pay rental fees for color transparencies, ask them to negotiate for longer rental periods. Different procedures are required to obtain photographs from European sources. When you request photographs from certain European archives (e.g., Scala, Giraudon, Alinari, Archivphoto Marburg), you will be told to contact an American agent unless purchased abroad directly from the archive. On the other hand, if your study is to be published in the cOW1try of origin, you may be referred back to the parent archive. In case of work by modem artists in Europe, the situation is quite different. For those artists who have assigned their rights to copyright licensing agencies, it is necessary to seek permis~ sion to reproduce from the licensing agency. If the photograph itself is copyrighted, permission for its use must be sought from the copyright owner. A photograph first published in the Unlted States more than seventy-five years ago, or a photograph first published without the proper copyright notice prior to 1989 in the United States is in the public domain. This being so, scholars are free to use the photograph in the United States without fear of copyright infringement. The Guidelines refer to instances when a scholar may have been given permission by a museum or collector to take his or her own photograph of a work or have hired a professional to do so. On notice or registration, its copyright under the Act of 1976 belongs to the scholar, not to the owner of the work of art (which mayor may not be copyrighted in its own right). Publishers Contracts It is in the scholar's interest to have responsibility for reproduction rights spelled out in contracts, as is the general practice. With wide national acceptance of the Guidelines, not-for-profit presses,
such as those that belong to the Association of University Presses, should support the scholar in any bid to have reproduction rights fees waived. At present, some publishers do not stipulate in contracts with scholars that the author must submit proof of authorization to use materials controlled by others while agreeing to pay permission charges; others do so require. In a limited number of cases it is possible to get the publisher to assume these fees, but this usually means less illustrative material than the author would like and, even so, often leads to a higher price for a book (hence more limited distribution of research results). Be aware that there are competitive awards that may aid a publisher to meet certain costs of reproduction in books on the history of art or architecture, among them the Millard Meiss Publication Fund subventions administered by the CAA and Graham Foundation grants from Chicago. Whenever applicable or prudent you should request permission to reproduce copyrighted materials from the owner of these rights and should agree to terms governing this scholarly courtesy, while at the same time making every effort to avoid either assuming the costs or providing copies of your publication to grantees of permission. Refer to the Guidelines in the case of books and negotiate for extra offprints in the case of articles in learned journals. ~Phyllis Bober

People in the News In Memoriam Margaret Alexander died on December 19, 1996, in Iowa City. She was a member of the faculty at the University of Iowa School of Art and Art History and the Department of Classics from 1961 until her retirement, where she taught early Christian and Byzantine art history. Alexander was born in 1916 in Sharon, Mass. She received a B.A. from Wheaton College in Norton, Mass., in 1938 and went on to receive M.A. and Ph.D. degrees in 1958 from New York University'S Institute of Fine Arts. In addition to her tenure at the University of Iowa, Alexander served as American director of the Corpus of the Mosaiques in Tunisia from 1967 until her death in 1996. She also worked as mosaic specialist for the Carthage Museum project, 1992-94, and as mosaic specialist for the Bir-el-Knissa project, 1990-96. She was co-author and editor of several books and contributed many articles to such magazines as Archaeology and National Geographic. Over the course of her career, Alexander received many grants to complete her research and travel, acting as guest lecturer for national and international projects. In 1994 she received the Presidential Cultural Gold Medal of Tunisia. Alexander's profeSSional activities included service as president of the Iowa Chapter of the Archaeological Institute of America, 1986-91, council member of the International Association for the Study of Antique Mosaics, and president of the International Committee for the Conservation of Mosaics, 1988-96. Alexander is survived by her husband, 2 daughters, a brother and sister, and a grandson. Pamela Askew. On June 24, 1997, the arthistorical world was greatly diminished by the death of Pamela Askew. She was 72 years old. A specialist in Italian and French painting of the 17th and 18th centuries, Askew held an M.A. from the Institute of Fine Arts, New York University, and a Ph.D. from the Courtauld Institute, University of London. She taught at Vassar College from 1950 to 1985. She was also a member of the Institute for Advanced Study at Princeton, 1976-77, and served on the CAA Board of Directors, 1982-84. In 1988 Askew received the CAA award for Distinguished Teaching of Art History. No one could have been more deserving, for she was an extraordinary teacher who significantly influenced the practice of art history in America. Vassar's early importance in the education of countless museum directors, collectors, and
Pamela Askew, 1925-1997 scholars was fostered by teachers such as Agnes Rindge Claflin, Leila Barber, and later, Askew, who put the lion's share of their intellectual energy into classroom lectures that were manifestly considered their most valuable form of publication. More recently, Askew was completing a book on the role of the Vassar art department and gallery in the formation of American art history; her introduction to this subject appears in The Early Years of Art History in the United States (Princeton, 1993). Vassar graduates often recount that, as a sophisticated woman with a distinctive personal commitment to intellectual life, Pamela Askew provided a powerful role model for female students (and, later, inspired male students as well). She set an exceptional standard in her brilliant lectures, which were characterized by penetrating critical judgment, acute visual sensibility, demand for thorough research, and aversion to cant. The seductive net of her influence was cast beyond her students, to embrace a large circle of colleagues and friends, among whom I am honored to be counted. Her inspiring effect was partly due to the protean curiosity that drove her own scholarship. She was genuinely interested in other people's work, and she lived for the possibility that the numerous manuscripts she read for friendship's sake might illuminate one of her own favorite iconographic problems. Certain works by certain artists-Giorgione, Michelangelo, Caravaggio, Poussin, Velazquez, Fragonard-fascinated her for decades, and it gave her the deepest pleasure (I can still hear her draw out that word) to lavish her formidable mental attention on their infinite possible significations. Pamela was a master of the art of friendship. Conversations with her were full of mirth and play, spiked by her sly wit that was often wicked but never cruel. She wrote marvelous letters-sending you arcane bibliography on your subject, carrying your own arguments one step farther, always softening her dead-right criticism with encouraging praise. Believing that the scholarly and the personal were a seamless whole, she embodied values that are all too rare today: loyalty, openmindedness, critical generosity, and integrity.

Askew's publications represent only a portion of her writings. She is best known for pioneering studies on Domenico Fetti and other aspects of 17th-century Italian art, and for her book CarmlOggio's Death of the Virgin (Princeton, 1990). She also edited C/Ill/de Lorrain, 1600~1682: A Symposium (National Gallery of Art, 1984). In an article resulting from a conference on Caravaggio in Rome in 1995, she presented provocative insight into Caravaggio's narrative paintings. She indicated that we do not witness the biblical event itself, but its imaginative recreation in the mind of a person carrying out humble daily tasks that are ennobled by the memory of their scriptural archetype. It was Askew's gift to discover the miraculous within the quotidian, to anatomize a painting to reveal the magic of artistic transformation. Someone said recently that Pamela really believed in art history. Rather, I think, she believed in art, which has the power to shape our consciousness she profoundly felt and understood. Once, as we stood together before a Trecento painting with il.:; sweet, ethereal, childlike figures, I remarked, "I used to think people in the 14th century looked like that." Pamela responded, with deliberate irony, "I still do." -Mary D. Garrard Jane des Grange, director of museums and museum shtdies at Hartwick College, in Oneonta, New York, died in the spring of 1997. De Grange instituted the museum studies program, coordinated internship programs, and directed the art gallery, the anthropology museum, the herbarium, and exhibition programs at Hartwick, where she had worked since 1976. In 1992 she was honored for her service with the Alumni Association's Meritorious Service Award. After earning degrees at Alfred University, Columbia University, and Jesus College in Oxford, des Grange began her career as director of museum plaruung and program development at the Temple Steel Company in Chicago. From there she returned to New York to serve for 15 years as director of museums and associate professor at the State University of New York at Stony Brook Des Grange founded the Carriage Association of America and served as the director of the u.s. Craft Program in Puerto Rico. She also worked as a pottery designer, a publication designer, a fashion coordinator, a costume and textile researcher, and director of market research at Kodak. She published books on such topics as Pennsylvania Dutch folk art, 19th-century folk life, and Long Island religious history.

Roy Lichtenstein, a founder of the Pop Art movement of the 1960s, died on September 29, 1997, in New York. He was 73 years old. Lichtenstein's often celebrated, sometimes controversial art has been well-recognized by the art world as well as by the American public since his debut at the Leo Castelli Gallery in New York in 1962. His work blurs the lines between "high" and "low" art, appropriating images and motifs from comic books and advertisements as a conscious dissent from Abstract Expressionism, the prevailing school of the time. N · ·· Lichtenstein showed himself to be a provocateur, saying he wanted to make an art so despicable that no one would hang it. Probably not even he dreamed at the time that collectors would some day pay millions of dollars to put his art on their walls," remarked Michael Kimmelman in the New York Times, September 30, 1997. The son of a prosperous real estate dealer, Lichtenstein grew up on New York City's Upper West Side. He began taking life courses at the age of 16 at the Art Shtdents League and went on to study art at Ohio State University in Columbus under Hoyt Sherman, the late Fauvist. After serving in the 69th Infanhy Division in Europe during World War II, he returned to Ohio State to complete his M.A. and teach art after the war. After he was denied tenure, he moved to Cleveland, where he married for the first time and worked as a window decorator and sheet~metal designer. Through the 1950s Lichtenstein explored styles influenced by Picasso, Klee, Fragonard, and the Abstract Expressionists. In 1957 he left Ohio to take teaching jobs in New York and New Jersey, at which point he became associated with the artists Allan Kaprow and Claes Oldenburg, as well as others who would help define the Pop Art movement of the next decade. Lichtenstein had exhibited internationally and worked in studios around New York City and Long Island since the mid-1960s. In 1990 he served as a juror for the Reader's Digest Artists at Giverny residency program that was administered by the College Art Association. Lichtenstein is survived by his wife, Dorothy Herzka, 2 sons, a sister, and a grandson. Academe Robert Baldwin has been appointed chair of the Art History Department at Connecticut College.
