Online Catalog Tips
We have reference books and regular books on artists. Use the BEHS catalog. Do a SUBJECT search based on the artist's last name (ex. Cassatt, Dali). If the artist was known by a first name use that instead (ex. Michelangelo).
If you can't find a book about one of the artists make sure to look in the index of reference books or catalogs from large museums to find a section on your artist.
