    This site shows scans of illustrated books, which is helpful sometimes for identifying bookplates or prints made from them...
    https://www.hathitrust.org/

    Google Books sometimes also displays whole books with illustrations...
    https://books.google.com/

    This Metropolitan Museum site is an interesting art reference...

    The New York Public Library has a huge database of scanned visual material including prints, photographs, maps, etc. You can use it to research both artists and publishers...
    https://digitalcollections.nypl.org/

    American artists are listed on this site...
    https://americanart.si.edu/art/artists

    I realize I posted sites that give you more than just info on artists, but also on art work. Should I have posted them in a new thread, or should we perhaps change the title of this thread to something like "Art and Artists Lookup Reference"?

    @daveydempsey or @Bookahtoo, if it’s not too involved, could you please change the Title to: Art and Artists Lookup Reference. ? Thank you, :)

    This website helped me a lot without multi-browsing dozens of websites. Its good for valuations of paintings and much more.

    Www.YouValYou.com shows pictures and past auction results for well listed artists.

    It works exactly like www.artnet.com or artprice.com but this one is for FREE!
