Art Full Text is a bibliographic database that indexes articles from art periodicals published throughout the world. Periodical coverage includes English-language periodicals, yearbooks, and museum bulletins, as well as periodicals published in French, Italian, German, Japanese, Spanish, Dutch, and Swedish. In addition to articles, this database indexes reproductions of works of art that appear in indexed periodicals. Art Full Text is a crucial source for research on all periods of art, art history, and architectural history broadly defined, including stylistic periods and movements and individual artists throughout the history of art from the ancient period through the present day.


Help is available via a link in the upper right corner of every screen.
