(always check in your syllabus or with your professor for the required course citation style)

Art Images

  • Google Images
    Look at the image size under the thumbnails when you mouse over an image in your search results (ex. 995x750).  You'll want to use the largest image you can find.

  • Oxford Art Online
    Includes some images within the entries.

  • The Perseus Digital Library
    A digital library of primary and secondary data on Greek and Roman literature, art, and culture.  Use the Artifact Browser to find buildings, sculptures, vases and sites.

  • The Beazley Archive
    A research unit of the Faculty of Classics at Oxford.  The free online databae contains notes, photographs, negatives, color prints, and more.

Also, don't forget that many books, including LIMC, contain images.  If you cannot find better images online, feel free to scan these books using the scanners on the main floor of the library.
