Answer

The "Art and Art History Subject Guide" on the Mahoney Library website would be a great place to start.  In the center of the guide, I would recommend ArtStor among the three image databases listed.

ArtStor is by far the largest of all the databases covering more than one million digital images in the arts, architecture, humanities and sciences and provides the best quality of images.  This library subscription database will allow you to browse collections from hundreds of museums and special collections.  This database includes features such as zooming into images; sorting by creator, date or by title of work; save, print and share your images and download into PowerPoint

For instructions on how to use ArtStor, go to Artstor Database Guide found on the left hand side of the "Art and Art History Subject Guide".  Feel free to contact the Reference desk at x4248 if you need further assistance.
