If you know the name of an artist, designer or architect, and you would like to find out more, the Monash Library’s art, design and architecture databases provide useful resources. To explore an artists’ oeuvre – their body of work – visually, the ARTstor database has images, artwork details, and provenance information. When you are logged in through the Library, you can download images to illustrate your essay. Use the provided details for your captions.
