Connect to Art Abstracts

What is it? Art Abstracts searches both Art Abstracts and Art Index Retrospective for bibliographic coverage of art periodicals from 1929 through the present.

Art Abstracts is a bibliographic database that indexes and abstracts articles from art periodicals. Periodical coverage includes English-language periodicals, yearbooks, and museum bulletins, as well as periodicals published in French, Italian, German, Japanese, Spanish, Dutch, and Swedish. In addition to articles, Art Abstracts indexes reproductions of works of art that appear in indexed periodicals. Abstracting coverage begins with January 1994. The abstracts range from 50 to 300 words and describe the content and scope of the source articles.

Art Index Retrospective is a bibliographic database that cumulates citations to Art Index volumes 1-32 of the printed index published between 1929-1984. The database cites articles from periodicals published throughout the world. Periodical coverage includes English-language periodicals, yearbooks, and museum bulletins, as well as periodicals published in French, Italian, German, Spanish, and Dutch. In addition to articles, Art Index Retrospective indexes reproductions of works of art that appear in indexed periodicals. The two databases can be searched separately if desired. Art Abstracts is updated monthly.

Why use it? Articles about art, photography, & architecture; citations for art reproductions.
