Artists and Designers

Online resources on artists and designers

Other digital resources which will be useful include the following:

  • Artists' own websites - many artists and designers have created their own web sites, most of these will be retrievable through a search engine.
  • Artcyclopedia  Extensive site can be searched by the name of artist, title of work of art, art gallery, nationality and art movement. Also has a listing of women artists.
  • Axis  A database of professional practising artists living and working in the UK. Artists have to apply to be included on this web site so it is not a complete database of all British artists. It is very useful for tracing lesser known artists.
  • Artists Org  gives brief information about movements and individual contemporary artists and designers. Useful for looking at selected images of an artist's work.
  • Great Buildings Online  This database documents 1000 buildings, 3d models, photographs, drawings and bibliographies.
