Museum Websites

Though it may be tempting to search Google or Wikipedia for your artist and their work, more reputable sources for background information on your topic may be found on museum websites. These museums employ art historians who research the artists and movements owned and exhibited by the museum. Information found on these websites are of good quality and would be considered reputable.
