World Painting Index: Bibliography, paintings by unknown artists, painters and their works
World Painting Index is a monumental reference work designed to eliminate many of the problems encountered in the search for a reproduction of a particular painting. The primary work, selected as one of the outstanding reference books of 1978, indexed 1,167 art books and catalogs published in the U.S. and abroad between 1940 and mid-1975, and provided access to reproductions of tens of thousands of paintings by thousands of artists from around the world. This third supplement indexes 951 art books and catalogs published in the U.S. and abroad from 1989 to 1999. Following the format of the original work and the first two supplements (1982 and 1995), it contains a numbered bibliography, a listing by title of work by artists whose names are unknown, a listing by painter of works appearing in the indexed volumes, and a listing by title of paintings giving the names of painters. A letter code informs the researcher what sort of reproduction is cited: black and white, color, a black and white detail, or a color detail. Essential for all art libraries or those that support programs in art history.
