Welcome to the Art Appreciation Research Guide.  This guide provides links to information about the resources available to you as you complete your Art Appreciation assignments.

Brief Background/Overview

For a brief history and some basic information about an artist, try a search in Britannica Encyclopedia.  Your search will usually bring you to the main article for that artist, but don't miss the additional resources available through the related sources on the left. The "Web's Best Sites" often provides links to relevant museum exhibits. Linked sites, such as wikis or dot coms with ads, should be evaluated in the same manner as any site on the open web.
