Oxford Art Online is the gateway to Oxford’s art reference works, including the peer-reviewed, regularly updated Grove Dictionary of Art and the Benezit Dictionary of Artists. It includes reference articles on topics that span ancient to contemporary art and architecture, and also provides thousands of images of works of art, structures, plans, and artist signatures.
Note: There is a sign-in limit of one simultaneous user. This means that if one person is signed in, a second user will have to wait in line until that person signs out and a log-in becomes available.
Featuring 945 alphabetically arranged entries, this is an indispensable
biographical and critical guide to American art and artists from colonial times to
contemporary postmodernism. The dictionary also provides entries on people connected with the American art scene and notable American institutions.
Oxford Reference Online is the home of Oxford’s quality reference publishing, bringing together over 2 million entries, many of which are illustrated, into a single cross-searchable resource. The Hekman Library has purchased 60+ reference titles, and they span all subject areas, with strengths in the humanities.
