Reference and Research Links

  • ARTCYCLOPEDIA: Search for "artists by name," "artwork by title" or "art museums." This site will provide references to sites on the World Wide Web where artists' works can be viewed online. For example, if you search by title and enter "Mona Lisa," you will see a picture of the Mona Lisa.This would be a great resource for our Art Docent volunteers!
