ART 100 (History of Art) Course Guide: Find Articles
This guide will help you find books, articles, and websites on art history. The guide was created to support students in Art 100.
You can use the library's Main Search to find articles. After you've searched for your artist, artwork, or related terms (artistic movement, place, period, etc.), use the Limiters on the left hand side to find "Scholarly Articles" only.
You can also use specific databases, which will give you fewer results but sometimes are more focused so you don't have to hunt through them. The three best for Art research are listed below.
Oxford Art Online is the access point for Grove Art Online, the Benezit Dictionary of Artists, and other Oxford art reference resources. It is the most comprehensive online reference resource for all aspects of the visual arts, and includes links to art images from private galleries and museums around the world.
The largest full-text art research database covering fine, decorative and commercial art, as well as architecture and architectural design. With strong international coverage, it offers hundreds of full-text art journals, magazines and books, plus detailed indexing and abstracts and thousands of images.
An authoritative eBook resource that features important works of scholarship in the history of art, architecture, decorative arts, photography, and design. With funding from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, Yale University Press developed this innovative site to provide greater access to and discoverability of recent, key backlist, and out-of-print titles on a wide variety of subjects from some of the world’s finest academic and museum publishers. Peer-reviewed born-digital content is also published on the A&AePortal.
