Provenance Research

See the detailed guide available in the Kohler Art Library Reference Room:
The AAM Guide to Provenance Research by Nancy H. Yeide, et al.

Appendix E lists: Selected resources for auction sales and exhibitions.  The Kohler Art Library Reference Room has a number of the major research sources, for example:  Lugt, Graves, Mireur.  Search the UW-Madison Library Catalog for other titles described there.

The Getty Research Institute's "Project for the Study of Collecting and Provenance" has published a number of useful resources.  Look for print:  e.g., Index of Paintings Sold in the British Isles During the Nineteenth Century, as well as online information:
