Finding Artwork

If you know which museum houses a piece of art you want to find, check out their website! Many museums have started digitizing their collections and allowing online access to high-resolution images. Not sure which museum might have the piece? Google it!

Some artists might even have websites where they provide digital versions of their work. Google a name and see!

Examples of Useful Books

If you find one title that looks like it might be useful, be sure to browse the books in the same area, because they'll be grouped by subject and you can often find a lot more once you're actually looking at the shelf.
