Researching Artists

For background information, start with an exhaustive reference work such as  Grove Art Online.

Bibliographies located in books or at the end of journal articles can be very helpful.  To learn if Pepperdine has access to a particular journal, search for the name of the journal in the library catalog, or use the 'Journals & Periodicals' search feature on the Library's Web site.

Locate artists' works on the Internet using a search engine such as Google; or visit a site that collects information about works from over 180,000 artists:  Artnet.com

Artsy, a resource for collection and education, aims to make all the world’s art accessible to anyone with an Internet connection.

ARTnews (available on Flipster) reports on the art, personalities, issues, trends and events shaping the international art world.  You can also find Elephant on Flipster.
