Tour the Site

Search
The Artwork Search page allows users to search up to three criteria. Each criteria has the following available search fields: Reference Number, Title / Alternative Title, Date, Medium, Provenance, Exhibitions, and Bibliography. Users can also search by year to see all works done in a given year as well as works held at major institutions.

Search Results
Once a search has been performed, all works matching the search criteria will appear. Search results are limited to the first 100 works in order to improve performance. You will be prompted to refine your search to narrow the results.

 


Details
The details page contains all known information pertaining to a work and includes the reference number, title, alternative titles, medium, dimensions, and inscription. Below the work are tabs for provenance, exhibitions, bibliography, copyright, illustration, and notes. If information is not available for an area, the tab will not appear.


Chronology
Searchable by year, the extensive chronology highlights key artworks and events during the artist’s life.

 


Compare
Once a search has been performed, users have the ability to click the select box on multiple works for comparison. Once all desired works have been selected, click compare to view your selections. If you click on and individual work, you will be directed to the details page.


My Favorites
Like the compare feature, users have the ability to click the select box on multiple works to add to the “my favorites”. The selected works will remain in the “my favorites” folder until deleted individually or as a group.
