Before using the search facility
- Check that the artist in whom you are interested is not listed individually within the Artist Galleries in the right-hand column of this page.
Using those direct links will be quicker than searching the whole site.
- Check to see if the type of painting or artistic movement is listed in the Collections
section in the right-hand column. Again, it might be quicker
to go directly to a particular area of the site by following
these links, although this is not always the case since some
of the collections are quite large.
- Two methods are available: the THEME SEARCH which enables you
to select from a list of broad categories such as 'angels', 'impressionists',
'dogs' etc, and a standard SEARCH BOX which works very much like a typical internet search engine.
- For purposes of the THEME SEARCH we have categorised each painting
into one or more of over twenty broad categories. However, when
using this option and the painting you're interested in doesn't
appear, this does not necessarily mean that it isn't there -
it might be that it was simply allocated to a different category.
Indeed paintings which do not fit easily into one of the categories
in the list have been left uncategorised and must be located
using a standard search.
- When using the SEARCH BOX to SEARCH THE SITE FOR AN ARTIST OR PAINTING
it will be helpful to note the following guidelines to avoid obtaining too many irrelevant results:
Viewing the whole gallery
- - Avoid using minor words (articles, conjunctions, etc) such as 'the', 'of',
'a', 'de'. For example, instead of typing 'the birth of venus', just type 'birth venus'.
- - Where possible, particularly when confusion might arise, avoid the use of artists' first names.
For example, instead of typing 'gustave caillebotte', just type 'caillebotte'. This will avoid the listing of
artists with the same or similar first names (such as Klimt).
- - Note that the search facility does tend to be tollerant as to spelling and contains a database
of many sound-alike names, however please do try to be as accurate
- - Note that no distinction is made between upper- and lower-case letters, therefore the
use of capital letters is unnecessary.
If you have plenty of time to spend, the whole of our published collection can be viewed from
start to finish by vlicking on the GALLERY button near the top left corner of the screen and simply using the navigation buttons
at the bottom of each screen to move backwards and forwards through the collection.
