HINTS FOR THE STUDY OF THESE PICTURE FILES These pictures are posted to help your study of the pictures in the art book by LaPlante. Some of them highlight in color some of the black and white pictures, others are of pictures not found there but which are important for you to know. Pay attention to the texts accompanying these pictures as they add to the information already in the book, and for those not in the book they supply the information you will need to know. The cross reference numbers are to the LaPlante picture numbers, either to the actual picture or to a comparable one. You must, of course, tie this to the information in the book regarding those pictures. Best Wishes.
