Grove Art Online—redesigned and now part of Oxford Art Online

Grove Art’s new look includes better searching capability to find images and image links from a search box on the opening page, or from a link at the top of the page. Find the more than 5,000 images in Grove Art as well as links to the 40,000 links from partner sites such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA), Art Images for College Teaching (AICT), and the Artists Rights Society.

The newly designed of Grove Art as part of Oxford Art Online includes the contents of Encyclopedia of Aesthetics, The Oxford Companion to Western Art, and The Concise Oxford Dictionary of Art Terms. These sources can be searched simultaneously or individually.

Also new are subcategories to locate results with the same theme. For example, click on the + sign by Grove Art. The cascade reveals several broad topics, including “Styles and Cultures.” Open Styles and Cultures and find African American. Search and find links to African American artists.

In addition, “Learning Resources” have been added that provide timelines of world art and art history thematic guides on major topics.
