Featured Online Resource: Bibliography of the History of Art

The Bibliography of the History of Art (BHA) is the world's most comprehensive bibliography of scholarly writing about the history of Western art from late antiquity to the present. Broad in scope, BHA encompasses fine arts—painting, sculpture, drawing, prints, and architecture—as well as decorative and applied arts—crafts, graphic arts, folk, and popular art. BHA indexes and abstracts art-related books, conference proceedings, dissertations, exhibition and dealers' catalogs and articles from thousands of periodicals in many languages. This database includes and extends the coverage of its two predecessor art indexes: RAA (Repertoire d'Art et d'Archéologie) from 1973 to 1989 and RILA (International Repertory of the Literature of Art) from 1975 to 1989. The BHA is produced jointly by the Getty Research Institute and the Institut de l'Information Scientifique et Technique (INIST) and is distributed by RLG, a not-for-profit organization of libraries, archives, and museums.
