ARTH 326: Romanesque and Gothic Art: Images of artworks

Images of artworks

Videos of artworks

Videos of artworks can be great primary sources, especially for architecture, sculpture, and other three-dimensional forms of art. Here are two strategies for finding videos of artworks:

Strategy #1: Use Quest. On the left, under Material Type, limit your search to Audio Visual materials. (You may have to click Show More to show the Audio Visual limiter.)

Strategy #2: Use a video search engine to search for free videos online. I recommend Google Videos and/or Bing Videos.
