Art and Art History: Articles


OneSearch is an excellent source for news, magazines, encyclopedias, and scholarly articles about art.
  What am I searching?

If you can't find anything by using your first set of keywords, try...

  • Searching for a specific artist
  • Searching for a movement of style
  • Using synonyms, related terms, or other new keywords related to your topic


  • You can look for books at other CUNY campuses by clicking the "All CUNY" link next to the search box
  • You can order books from other CUNY's by clicking the "Request" button

Art Databases

Several of our best sources for art and art historical information are not included in OneSearch. If you're coming up short with OneSearch, definitely try these databases:


  • Articles that are not available in full-text at our library may be ordered using Inter-Library Loan. Orders can take as little as a few days to arrive. Create your account and use the "Request item via ILL" link to order directly from a database.

Additional History Databases


  • These are only a few of our many history databases. If you'd like more, visit the History Research Guide.
  • Many historical topics are best covered in books. Visit the Books section of this site to search.

Art Magazines Available at Lehman

You can browse print copies of several of the magazines below in the Library's Periodicals Room (Basement Room B01). Many are available online, as indicated.
