Benezit Dictionary of Artists
Reviews and Awards
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 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."
