Info in Exhibition Catalogs

Exhibition and museum catalogues are uniquely valuable sources, which may include:

  • Fundamental data on each work of art;
  • Official images of the artworks;
  • Curatorial statements/essays;
  • essays by art critics/historians;
  • list of scholarly publications on the art,
  • sometimes, artists’ interviews,
  • and more.
  • Here is an example from Tisch library: book cover
