This guide will point to sources of images for research and illustration.
Databases with Image Searches
Locating images and photographs is an important feature for scholarship. Search results in many scholarly databases can now be expanded to include photographs or images. Here is a sample of some research databases with this feature.
Either limit your search to "Images" or select the Images Tab at the top left of the article. Link to over 5400 images from the Grove Dictionary of Art and other Oxford University Press titles or to reliable websites.
Search by "photographer/illustrator" or by "person pictured" or by "fashion item" or by "companies/brands." Select "chart, cartoon, photograph, illustration, diagram, logo, etc" as a document feature or "advertisement, fashion shoot or cover" as a document type.
