It features articles about topics as varied as Fauvism and Frida Kahlo, bibliographies for further research, and thousands of searchable images made available through Oxford’s partnerships with museums, galleries, and other outstanding arts organizations. 90 new images have been added In August including Artemisia Gentileschi’s Self-Portrait as the Allegory of Painting, Orazio Gentileschi’s Judith and Her Maidservant with the Head of Holofernes, and Pierre Puvis de Chavannes’s utopian painting, Hope. Also added are new images of Hieronymus Bosch’s paintings: Ecce Homo, Saint John the Evangelist on Patmos, and The Last Judgment.
