NOTE: The Artstor website will be retiring August 1, 2024 and all content will be available on JSTOR at jstor.org/images.
Many museums and galleries include information about artists and artworks on their websites. Below are links to museums and galleries that provide substantial information about artists on their websites.
Also try searching the websites of museums and galleries that were listed at the end of the Grove Art entry for your photographer (see Step 1) and in the ArtStor artwork records (see Step 2).
Use the EWU Library catalog to locate electronic articles and books on your photographer. You may find an interview with the photographer or a useful overview of the photographer's work.
Search by photographer name and limit to "Available online". This will allow you to see only content available online. You may also want to limit the language to English. Also use the Format facet to exclude Reviews. See the "How do I search the catalog?" page for instructions. Please contact me for help searching the catalog and accessing resources.
