Topics in American Art
with content focusing on representational art
How to research topics not listed
For teachers and students wishing to study American art history from additional perspectives, such as ethnic orientations beyond those presented as topics, Resource Library contains thousands of texts related to a plethora of subjects. An easy way to identify specific texts is to enter relevant keywords in the Resource Library search box.
Example: If, on March 29, 2012, you sought to study artistic beliefs, you might have entered the word "believed" in the Resource Library search box. In the 493 pages of references retrieved you would have found a broad array of information. If you wanted to learn about beliefs in relation to an artistic movement you might have prefaced "believed" with a name such as "modernists" (146 pages), or "impressionists" (118 pages). An alternate to the word "believed" might be "thought." If you entered the words "impressionists thought" you word have retrieved 174 pages.
Since American art museums often focus on local art history, an index to assist in identification of articles and essays with a regional focus is useful. See Resource Library's Sources of Articles and Essays Indexed by State within the United States for a handy guide.
