Grove Art Online
The Grove Dictionary of Art is the unsurpassed authority on all aspects of the visual arts, with 30,000 signed and peer-reviewed articles contributed by nearly 7,000 international scholars. Grove Art features entries on artists, architects, craftsmen, patrons, movements, locations, and periods, as well as bibliographies for further research and thousands of searchable images made available through Oxford’s partnerships with museums, galleries, and other outstanding arts organizations.
First published as the landmark 34-volume Dictionary of Art, the dictionary now lives as an online resource, published by Oxford University Press. Grove Art has an editorial board of distinguished art historians who guide its development, led by its Editor in Chief who works closely with the publishing editors at the press. Grove Art also has an advisory board of art historians, art librarians, and art experts who advise on functional enhancements and the needs of existing and emerging users of the resource. Other highly acclaimed art reference works included with a subscription to Grove Art include the Encyclopedia of Aesthetics (2nd edition), The Oxford Companion to Western Art, and The Concise Oxford Dictionary of Art Terms.
Benezit Dictionary of Artists is also available on the Art Online platform as a separate subscription.
