Something's happening to Grove Art Online

The Grove Art Online database has been a staple of studio and art history majors for quite some time, but over the last year it's had some major changes. It is now part of the Oxford Art Online portal. You will still be able to access all the useful information from the old Grove Art Online, such as the Grove Art Dictionary, artists' biographies, articles, and more.

As part of Oxford Art Online, we now have access to the Oxford Companion to Western Art, the Encyclopedia of Aesthetics, and the Concise Oxford Dictionary for Art Terms. As well as having the four sources provided in one website, Oxford Art Online has lots of links to outside reputable resources such as ArtStor and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. If the Oxford Art Online doesn't have an image you're looking for, there's a good chance, they'll have a link where you can find it.

For more tips, keep reading. For image copyright information, click on Johannes Vermeer's Woman with Lute

If you've been using Grove Art and just need to be caught up on what all the changes mean, check out their Experienced Users Guide.

If you're a new user needing some help, try the Guided Tour Powerpoint.

Need some help with a lesson plan, Oxford Art Online has some suggestions, here.
