Faculty, do you need an image for your in-class teaching?  Students, would you like an example of a particular art form to go along with your class project or presentation?  Then check out: Scholars Resource at:

Butler Libraries, in partnership with the Global & Historical Studies core curriculum course and Information Resources, has made available a set of Scholars Resource images.  The database of art images includes:  painting, sculpture, architecture, and decorative arts from various time periods.  This resource also includes photos
taken by Butler faculty who have traveled to various countries for teaching
research in support of Butler’s Global and Historical Studies course.

Besides the above direct link, the database is also accessible by going to the Library’s homepage: and selecting ‘Databases’ and the ‘Full Alphabetical Database List’ link  Note too, via the Library’s listing, that there is a PDF of the Scholars Resource images that can be found in the database.

Peruse this image database.  It is literally an ‘Introduction to the Visual Arts,’ the images coming from the published texts:  Gilbert’s “Living with Art,” 6th ed., Gardner’s “Art Through the Ages,” 11th ed., and Hartt’s “History of Italian Renaissance Art,” 4th ed.
