The various visual arts exist within a continuum that ranges from purely aesthetic purposes at one end to purely utilitarian purposes at the other. In 2017, you’ll notice some improvements to Oxford Art Online, including a fresh look and feel, improved search capabilities, and even more frequent updates to the content. Therefore, any subsequent differences we observed in the students were caused by touring an art museum or seeing live theater, not a result of pre-existing differences among them.
All but two of the databases are included in the Art Therapy scholarly article links… above. By the end, I hope the art novices feel more adept at using their creative skills. In addition to providing full-text articles from hundreds of periodicals, Art Full Text provides high-quality indexing and abstracts for peer-reviewed journals and art dissertations and indexing for hundreds of thousands of art reproductions.
Art history’s claims to usefulness have always been based (albeit in different ways) on the fundamental assumption that art can reveal attitudes, ideologies, even facts about the culture in which it was made. All articles published from 1982 can be accessed via the Wiley Online Library As a member of NSEAD, or as an AD magazine subscriber, you have access to every article.
The final factor that I want to mention here, which makes art history distinctive, is the diversity of approaches it uses to investigate its materials. As of March 2010, the database contained about 1,489,580 titles, including 777,580 articles. I choose to buy the bulk of my art materials and art books from various shops and suppliers but have no financial relationship or formal affiliation with any suppliers of art materials, any publisher or any B&M art shop or art bookshop.
What emerges from the 2013 report is a gradual convergence in the motivation and interests of key stakeholders in the art market and wealth management community as regards art as an asset class, and this trend is driven by the client. I am fortunate to have studied with David A. Leffel at the Art Students League of New York, and this experience continues to have the greatest impact on my work.
