The papers of painter, muralist, children's book author and illustrator James Daugherty measure 6.5 linear feet and date from 1904-1978. The papers document Daugherty's career and artistic process through a small amount of biographical material, correspondence, writings, printed material, and sketchbooks. The 150 sketchbooks span seven decades and are the bulk and highlight of this collection. They contain preparatory drawings and sketches for artworks, murals, and illustrations, as well mock-ups for books, travel sketches, and a good deal of writing. Daugherty worked in both a non-objective abstract style and in representational illustration. His illustrations depict biblical stories and familiar characters and caricatures from American folklore including Revolutionary War heroes, Native Americans, American explorers and frontiersman.

- "By the second half of the twelfth century, the production of lustre-painted ceramics, an invention of potters in ninth-century Iraq, had been adopted in Iran. In Kashan, the principal city associated with lustreware, this tradition reached new levels of artistic and technical sophistication that were never equaled elsewhere."

"This plate, regarded as one of the masterpieces of lustreware, is decorated with an highly unusual and complex composition. According to one interpretation it represents a mystical allegory in which a mystic, the sleeping youth, yearns to transcend the material world (signified by the horse) in order to reach a vision of divine beauty (symbolized ...
