This guide focuses on finding relevant documents when researching an art object. In addition to searching for information about the art work or artist directly, search for documents that cover some of the following concepts, which can be helpful when you cannot find information on the artwork itself:
- Related to the artist and their other works,
- Other works from the same art-historical period or style,
- Technical processes and materials,
- Subject matter and themes,
- Social or historical context, etc.
