ArtsCorner: The Benezit Dictionary of Artists now online!
The Benezit Dictionary of Artists is now online for the first time via Oxford Art Online!
In addition to its outstanding scope and depth, two features in particular make Benezit unique among art reference works: its superb coverage of obscure artists and the inclusion of images of artists’ signatures, monograms, and stamps.
Since 1911, Benezit has been the preeminent authority on artists’ biographies in print. With the addition of the digital Benezit to Oxford Art Online, art researchers now have instant access to this resource, as well as the ability to cross-search it with Grove Art Online and other Oxford art titles.
