A Few Pointers

  • Unlike practitioners in other disciplines, art historians continue to rely primarily upon print materials. Relative to that of other fields, for example, the professional and scholarly literature of art history remains undigitized.
  • If you're researching a work of art by a known (named) artist, begin with the artist's catalogue raisonne. To find these indispensible research tools, simply do a keyword search in Bobcat and enter: <artist's surname> and raisonne. For example: Warhol and raisonne. The catalogue raisonne entry usually provides extensive bibliography of sources in which the sought-after work is illustrated and/or discussed.
