  1.  Search Grapus by itself in the library’s resources instead of Grapus collective.  Results are much better with the single word.
  2. Search Grapus in AU Library search on the library’s home page.  You are going to find about 10 items.  We have three of the books here in our art shelves on the lower level of the library, and one is available in the consortium.  We could have that one brought over with a consortium loan request.
  3. If you have time, request this book through interlibrary loan.  It is held by libraries in Maryland and Virginia, so it is possible we could get it pretty soon (the librarians at the Research Desk can walk you through making a consortium loan or an interlibrary loan request if you have not done it before):

  1. Search grapus in some of our art databases.  Art Bibliographies Modern and Art and Architecture Source have the most.  Access the art databases from this page:  https://subjectguides.library.american.edu/c.php?g=467192&p=3194715
  2. If you still need more, search the names of some of the artists that belonged to grapus in AU Library search and in the art databases in #4.  I found the following names:  Pierre Bernard, Francois Miehe, and Gerard Paris-Clavel.  Books on these artists would likely have a section on their work.
