Illustrations in Print Publications

Locating illustrations in print volumes can be as simple as searching the ND Catalog for an artist's name.  Obscure artworks can require ingenuity, however, since there is no comprehensive master index.

  • Sometimes the captions identifying illustrations can be retrieved by searching Google Books
  • Pictures published in print journals may be listed explicitly in periodical indexes.
  • In JSTOR, captions can be searched by changing the default dropdown from "Full-text" to "Caption."
  • In the library catalog, search a phrase such as "saints in art" or "food in art." 
  • In the library catalog, search a topic with the words "pictorial works," e.g. "clothing pictorial works."
