ADDITIONAL RESEARCH SUPPORT

TIP If you have the name of an artist or art movement that is two or more words, such as Edmonia Lewis or Greek Sculpture, search for it in quotation marks as "Edmonia Lewis" or "Greek Sculpture". This will keep the words together as a phrase. Works in Google and Google Scholar, too!
