A catalogue raisonné is a scholarly compilation of an artist's body of work which will include annotated listings of all known artworks by an artist, or all works they have created in a particular media (i.e, prints or photographs). They are critical research tools for provenance and attribution of artwork, are thoroughly comprehensive, and can take years to publish. In addition to the complete list of works, the catalogue may include the following information about the works listed:
A few examples:
1. Start by searching the artist's name as a keyword and the keyword: catalogue* raisonne* using the advanced search option in UC Library Search. Most catalogues raisonnes will be assigned a subject heading "catalogues raisonnes" (plural) or the title of the work may be singular to "catalogue raisonne" so truncating using the * will search both the singular and plural. Using the advanced search will help you with the AND operator linking these two keywords and ensuring they both appear in each record of the search results.
