Most art historical research involves finding supporting images to illustrate your arguments. Images can be appended to the end of your paper and also used for in-class PowerPoint presentations. Finding high-quality images can be difficult when using only free online sources, and use of some images may violate copyright laws. The resources on this page provide access to high-quality images available specifically for research and instructional use.
Remember: if you cannot find an image you need online, you may find it in a related monograph or exhibition catalogue in the Art Library. Use the in-house scanner to make a digital reproduction for your paper or presentation.
In addition to the websites and databases provided here, you can find digital collections on many other museum and archives websites.
