Q

I am doing research for my art history class, and I am unsure what database to use to find articles that will help with my paper.

My topic: "Compare the differing concerns of Leonardo and Michelangelo in their designs for the murals commissioned by the Florentine Republic: the Battle of Anghiari and the Battle of Cascina. "

Answer

Thank you for using our Ask-a-Librarian service. Try starting at our Art and Art History LibGuide http://library.uhd.edu/art. Try the database Art Full Text. I got the best results by searching for the particular works of art: "Battle of Anghiari" AND "Battle of Cascina." You can search for them both at the same time, but I think the better strategy is to search for each work separately, look at the information you find and then use your critical thinking skills to compare the concerns of Leonardo and Michelangelo. You may also want to try some of the other databases in the Art and Art History guide using the same search strategy. You might also look at  the database Oxford Art Online. You can search by the names of the artists, but I think you will get more focused results if you again search by the names of the pieces of art. Finally there is a book called The Lost Battles : Leonardo, Michelangelo, and the Artistic Duel That Defined the Renaissance that you can find at the UHD library  http://library.uh.edu/record=b5801407~S14 .
