If you are just getting started, you may want to browse available art movements to get an idea of what they entail.
Encyclopedias will give you a strong foundation for further research. If you are looking for the big picture, look here:
Search for books using our library catalog. Search by movement for best results.
Journal or magazine articles are on much narrower topics than books or encyclopedia articles. For articles you can search by movement or artist. You will find that the articles are about a specific sub-topic within the movement or artist's work.
Any time you use another person's words, pictures, or ideas, you have to give them credit. Use the link below to get help citing your sources.
