Benezit Dictionary of Artists

 
9780199773787: Benezit Dictionary of Artists

Oxford University Press is pleased to announce the acquisition of the Benezit Dictionary of Artists. Since 1911, the Benezit has been the unrivalled, indispensable work of reference for art historians, dealers, collectors and students. Benezit provides both the amateur and the professional with important factual information about almost any painter, sculptor, engraver or draughtsman of all countries and schools, from Antiquity to the present day.

This essential working tool gives not only biographical data, but also a general presentation of an artist's work, as well as a selection of bibliographical references, museum listings, graphics (including artist signatures, monograms and stamps of sale) and auction records.

This first English edition (2006) is the largest edition ever - over 170,000 entries, comprising over 20,000 pages in 14 volumes. Older entries have been updated and expanded, over 3,000 entries have been completely rewritten, and over 2,000 new entries have been added. All these combine to make the 2006 Benezit Dictionary of Artists even more compelling and useful to a wider audience than ever before.

The 2006 English edition of the Benezit, plus emendations and new articles will be made available online in fall 2011 via the Oxford Art Online portal (www.oxfordartonline.com). Sitting alongside Grove Art Online, the Benezit will take its place among the select electronic resources that are at that heart of the serious art research community.

About the Author:


Emmanuel Benezit is the nominal author, although he had no role in the publication of this edition, which was edited and published by Editions Gründ.

Review:


From CHOICE:
"Benezit's work has served as a mainstay for art historians, researchers, collectors, and dealers. Best known for its references to obscure artists, along with samples of their signatures or marks, it is the book of first (and last!) resort in tracking down biographical information."


From Library Journal:
"Bottom Line: This authoritative and useful work is the standard biographical listing of artists, outdoing similar resources in both size and scope."


From ARTnews, Summer 2006:
"..one of the art world's more important dictionaries... an extraordinary achievement."


From Choice Magazine, February 2007":
"...an indispensable replacement for any earlier edition."


From Art Libraries Journal - ARLIS UK & Ireland, March 2007:
"...the largest up-to-date compilation of artist biographical information in print."


From Art Documentation, June 2007:
"Benezit is one of a handful of publications essential to any art library, and it has been present as long as any practicing librarian can remember."
