Q. If I can't find enough information in our art databases on a contemporary artist, where else should I look?

If you can't find sufficient information in the library art databases, try these:

 

The Art Newspaper—after registering for an account, you can search for all sorts of interesting information about contemporary artists and the art market.

 

Nexis Uni—(an AU subscription database) has newspapers from all over.

 

Art gallery pages—do you know the gallery that represents either of the artists?  Sometimes they have interesting information.

 

Museum pages, including the the National Portrait Gallery

 

WorldCat—this is books, but so many libraries contribute to it that you can find some obscure things.

 

ProQuest Dissertations and Theses (an AU subscription database.)  A dissertation has a lot of text to search and lots of relevant bibliography

 

Also take a look at the Art Subject Guides.  To find all of our Subject Guides, go to the library's homepage under Research Resources > Subject Guides.
