Special thanks to Edmund Pillsbury, Phd. - Fort Worth, Texas. As Director of the Kimbell Art Museum, Dr Pillsbury granted permission to reproduce the 1982 Vigée Le Brun Exhibition Catalog in return for my work on the "2nd generation" Kimbell Art Museum Website (1997), the Kimbell's 1997 Monet Exhibition sub-Website, and my efforts to convince Dr Pillsbury to host images of the complete Kimbell collection on the museum's web site. I approached Dr. Pillsbury and Marketting Manager, Mark Caywood with this concept in late 1996. Art Museum's at the time were leery of the concept of wide spread display of their art images on the web. Many people may not know that Dr. Pillsbury was the first Director of a major art museum in the USA to present a complete set of images of a museum's collection on the Web. The MET, then other major museums quickly followed. The Kimbell's 1782 self portrait of Vigée Le Brun was the catalist for the start of The Art of Vigée Le Brun website in October 1996 - Kevin J.
