"This body of Modern
and Contemporary artists' sites brings insight into the depth and scope of
extraordinary artists' oeuvres, and it serves as a research tool for students,
faculty, museum curators, researchers, dealers and collectors.
Artist Works Catalogues reflect the dynamic nature of the Web, and our goal is to present a growing body of artists' online monographs. Unlike published print monographs and catalogues raisonne's, these are living catalogues, which will be constantly updated as artists create new works and estates release additional information. artnet offers these catalogues free to the public as an educational resource. Simply click on an individual artist's image to begin, and check back often to browse new catalogues."
