Scholarly monographs, exhibition catalogs, and catalogues raisonnes (a complete inventory of an artist's work) are widely available at the library and often include images of lesser known artworks which may not be easy to find online. If you are searching for works by a particular artist, and you know his/her name, remember to do both AUTHOR and SUBJECT searches in Vanderbilt's library catalog, Acorn. If the artist's name is fairly distinctive, try a simple keyword search; this will work well for distinctive names like Robert Rauschenberg.
If you are receiving hundreds of results or the results seem irrelevant, try narrowing your search. Select Advanced Search next to the search bar. Select Any in the left-hand drop-down menu and search instead by Title or Author.
