Finding More Books & eBooks
Search here for eBooks.
Surprisingly, ebooks can sometimes be easier to understand than highly specialized journal articles. You are looking for a good chapter, or even introduction, not an entire book to read!
Combining the level of analysis you may find in a book with the analysis found in an article makes your research not only easier but more interesting.
Search using words that might appear in the title, summary or subjects of a book.
Try searching for artist's names rather than specific artworks.
Try broadening your search to the artistic movement they are associated with, the time period, the genre (eg "casta paintings"), or their country of origin.
Use the table of contents and "Search within" tool in an ebook to identify a useful chapter or section.
