Research Guides & Bibliographies

Bibliographies and research guides devoted to one (or sometimes more) artists or architects offer selective, annotated bibliographies of writings by and about the artist (usually arranged in a subject-based order), plus chronologies, biographical sketches; lists of exhibitions; and various indexes. These are excellent resources to start your research on a particular artist or architect. The more well-known artists with available research guides are listed here; some other artists and architects also have research guides.
