When you're looking for information about a particular work, a catalogue raisonne can be a good place to start. Catalogues raisonnes list all known works by a given artist and include a picture of each art work, as well as critical commentary and a bibliography. Reed holds catalogues raisonnes for many different artists; you can find them by searching the catalog for '[artist name] catalogue raisonne.' IFAR has created an online database of curent and in production catalogue raisonnes to search.
Exhibition catalogs also often contain helpful information on a particular artwork, such as critical commentary or a bibliography. You can locate exhibition catalogs in the catalog by searching for '[artist name] exhibitions.'
If you know which museum holds a particular artwork, permanent holdings catalogs are another good place to check. Like a catalogue raisonne, a permanent holdings catalog will generally include a picture of the art work, critical commentary and a bibliography. Find permanent holdings catalogs in the catalog by searching for '[name of museum] catalogs'
