Please view our research guide, "Art History and Fine Arts: How to research an art work". This guide will give you detailed information on how to find books, articles, and credible websites that will give you the analysis and details you need for your painting. I would also recommend The Philadelphia Museum of Art website, as that is where the painting is located. If you need a high resolution image of the paining to use in your presentation or paper Artstor would be the database to go to for that. For academic journals you will find Jstor particularly helpful.
