Catalogues Raisonnés

Catalogues raisonnés — scholarly compilations of an artist's body of work — are critical tools for researching the provenance and attribution of artwork. The Catalogues Raisonnés Database, from the International Foundation for Art Research (IFAR), features annotated bibliographic information and links to additional resources regarding over 3,800 published catalogues raisonnés and approximately 350 catalogues-in-preparation concerning 2,580 artists. 

The database has external links to the complete or partial digitized text of published catalogues raisonnés available on Google Books, HathiTrust, Internet Archive, and other online platforms. Additionally, Database users are able to link to WorldCat to locate the library nearest to them that holds a print copy of a particular catalogue.
