Much of the time, an art history research project will start with an artist or artwork or genre already in mind. In that case, you need to start finding context for your subject. Before diving into journal articles or books, consider using Grove Art Online to place your subject in time, space, among other artists, and so on.

  • Grove Art Online (now Oxford Art Online)
    A comprehensive online reference resource for all aspects of the visual arts worldwide from prehistory to the present day! Features over 45,000 signed articles, 5,500 images, 40,000 image links, timelines of world art, MoMA lesson plans, and a link to Art Resource. Also includes access to the full text of the Encyclopedia of Aesthetics, The Concise Oxford Dictionary of Art Terms, and the Oxford Companion to Western Art.

Search Credo

Credo Reference Online includes hundreds of reference sources like encyclopedias and handbooks. Two specialities of Credo are their Topic Pages and Concept Map. Topic Pages incorporate entries on a topicsubject from all sources within Credo, PLUS articles on the topic from library article databases, as well as books from the catalog. The Concept Map helps you visualize the facets of a topic and can provide you with subject terms you may not have thought of using.
