Oxford Art Online - part of the Epic Databases

I am going to periodically profile the databases available on Epic. This one, Oxford Art Online is very useful for art students. If you are looking for :
  • examples of an artists work 
  • an explanation of an art term,
  • fashion, 
  • design 
  • architecture
  • artist biographies and
heaps more arty information this is a great place to look.

Log on is available from Ms Schaumann or on the tear-off sheets in the library.

Oxford Art Online (including Grove Art)

The Oxford Art Online gateway provides access not only to Grove Art Online, including the full text of the 34-volume print edition of The Dictionary of Art, but to:
  • The Oxford Companion to Western art
  • The Encyclopedia of Aesthetics
  • Concise Oxford Dictionary of Art Terms
  • Over 2,000 additional colour images from the Metropolitan Museum of Art and Art Images for College Teaching, and 500 new images of modern and contemporary art, embedded in the text of articles.
World Art Timelines and Learning Resources, as well as links to other subject specific online resources, provide support for students and teachers.
