There are literally hundreds of additional articles on Caravaggio in these non-art article databases. Think outside the box!
Books on Caravaggio
A subject search in the Five Colleges Library catalog for "Caravaggio", and all the various subheadings under this main heading, retrieves 391 hits.
But a search in WorldCat retreives 2,320 books, 242 Internet sites, 169 visual resources, 9 archival sites, two serials (journals), etc. Obviously there's a lot more out there on Carvaggio than we have in the Five Colleges. Use Interlibrary Loan to have these materials brought here for your papers.
Welcome to the library course guide page for Art History 370: Carvaggio
This guide is intended to help you in your class work. In the database pages, I have suggested both general and art-specific databases which may have articles relating to your research. It is not, of course, exhaustive.
If you'd like an individual research consultation on your paper topic, please contact me and we'll set up a time to meet.
If you've reviewed all the presentations in the "Library research help," I drive home a few key points here.
