This page will help you locate book (a.k.a. "monographic") sources on art topics, including dissertations and theses and catalogues raisonnés. Books can be great starting points for research as they can provide broader and more comprehensive information than articles found in magazines and journals. Books take longer to publish than articles though, so the information found in them may be less up-to-date than what might be found in a journal article. Books may provide photographs, drawings, and details of artworks not found in articles or online.
