Western Americana Prints Database 

The Western American Prints database contains records for over 1000 individual prints from the Yale Collection of Western Americana. The records in the database provide the following information for individual prints: shelf location, name(s) of original artists, engravers, lithographers, and publishers associated with the print, titles, place and date of publication, form of print (e.g. lithographs, engravings, etc.), dimensions, brief subject descriptions and citations to standard reference bibliographic tools where useful. The information has, for the most part, been taken directly from the prints themselves and is not, as yet, subject to authority control to reconcile variant forms of personal and corporate names.

The following fields may be searched using keyword and phrase searching: Creator (including names of original artists as well as the artisans who may have transformed a painting or watercolor to a print), Title , Publisher , Place of Publication , Date of Publication , Method , Description , and Reference .

An asterisk (*) truncates search terms (i.e. searching for Natur* as a title keyword will retrieve records with both Natural and Nature in the title statement .)
