This guide will help you identify pertinent resources for your Art History 414 research paper assignment.
As an example of a possible research topic, we will be using the following paper topic, "Two Yakshi Fragments from the Denman Waldo Ross Collection at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston" as our example.
We will be searching for information on each object itself, in terms of its artistic and religious significance, as well as contextual, historical information.
