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.

"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."
