Finding museum catalogs & exhibitions

Find museum and gallery catalogs
Search the catalog by author using the name of the museum that owns the work(s).  Within this list, look for a handbook, guide to the collection or exhibition catalogs covering the time period, style, medium, or artistic movement as your object.

For example:

To locate general museum handbooks, use a keyword search adding "handbook," "guide" or "collection" to the name of the museum.


Find exhibition catalogs:

  • exhibitions (subject) and Rei Kawakubo  (keyword)
  • Museum exhibits -- Social aspects (subject) and fashion (keyword)


Use subject headings to browse lists of records:

  • Fashion designers
  • Fashion and art
  • Fashion design -- France
