The bibliographies (or in this case, webliographies) and table of contents in a hypertext document lead users to resources through several paths. We have inserted links to our webliographies here to provide the most direct access.  These resources include those used in preparing this online manuscript and those recommended by the project personnel as relevant to the study of icons in art.  Grant Wood, American Gothic, and the Stone City Art Colony are icons.  The art world has many more; some of which you will find on the icons in art, architecture and photography pages.
