Reference Sources & Biography

Secondary Sources: Books & Journals

1. Search the catalog for your artist.

Remember, you may need to broaden your search! Consider terms like "art history" "Russia art" or "futurism." Your artist may not be mentioned in the title of a book, but they may appear in the index (which you will only find if you look at the book in person).

2. Consider scholarly journal articles from the following databases.

Hint: try searching for your artist's name and/or specific works of art in quotation marks.
