Art History Resources

There are many books on art, the history of art in general, and specific artists in the Walnut Hills High School Library. In particular, we have the Grove Dictionary of Art, an essential reference for art and art history, in our library. Use this first: it's the best source!

Some websites you might want to look at in addition are:
