Image Databases: Print Sources

Books (Indexes)


How to search an index:

  • Check the Title Index for what you need (the title often indicates the subject).
  • This will give you a code or an abbreviation (If it gives you the artist's name, look in the Author Index to get the code.) The code stands for a particular book which has a reproduction of the image you need.
  • Check the code list in the front of the first volume to get the title of the book.

Specific Indexes:

Images in Articles

Images from Articles
Search an art history database for images. Many databases indicate whether or not the article contains images. You can also limit to only articles with images.
