Internet Resources

Anyone can put up a website and make it look pretty slick (heck, if I can do it, anyone can).  Just because something is online, this does not make it correct.  Print sources in the library can contain inaccuracies, but in order to get into the library, they must first be approved by an editor and often by other scholars in the field, and then selected by your university librarians.  There are no such checks on internet publications.  Therefore, do not trust what you find online, unless it comes from a trustworthy source (for example, the British Library’s web page, or the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s web page are much more trustworthy than Bob’s Art Page of Stuff I Saw in France).  Be certain that you know the author of any website you cite, and the motivation for the site (i.e. to give information, to convey news, to sell a product, to convert new cult members – yes, I’ve seen those all show up on student papers!)  Use your best judgment, but expect your professors to hold you accountable for your choices!


There are many excellent sites related to art history.  I have collected a small number of these into categories.  If you know of any other good examples, email me!

The Forbidden List!

Do not use or cite ANY of these sources!  These are sources that I see just about every semester in student papers, and they are just not acceptable!  You will note that I have not made this links active.  That is because I don’t want you going to the sites!
