REFERENCE ABBREVIATIONS BY ARTIST - (Index to Catalogues RaisonnÚs)
This section is arranged alphabetically by the artist's last name. A list of artist's names is displayed on the left. In the results pane, the first column is the letter designation of the catalogue raisonnÚ number. The second column is last name of the author of that particular catalogue raisonnÚ, and the third column lists a "G" if that work is general in nature (found in the General Reference Works section). You may then go to the bibliographical sections to check for the complete citation for that artist's catalogue(s).
The abbreviations used to indicate a reference source are listed here. This brief reference to the author of the catalogue raisonnÚ is the guide to the bibliographies which follow. A capital "G" following the source designates a catalogue that is general in nature and can be found in the section "General Reference Works" following the "Catalogues RaisonnÚs and Monographs" section.
In this section Reference Abbreviations, artists' names are listed alphabetically and the author(s) of the major catalogues raisonnÚs, monographs, or articles on the particular artist is (are) listed directly below. This provides a convenient reference to the section entitled "Catalogues RaisonnÚs and Monographs." As an example, looking here for the standard work on John Taylor Arms one finds "Fletcher"; then looking under the catalogue raisonnÚ bibliography for Fletcher one finds John Taylor Arms: A Man for all Time. If the standard catalogue raisonnÚ on a particular artist is part of a series on, or study of, a number of artists (e.g. Bartsch, Hollstein, and so forth) that reference would be found in the general reference section entitled "General Reference Works". We have chosen to list as many references here as possible although the work referred to may not be listed in our catalogues raisonnÚs bibliography.
