The Bibliography of the History of Art (BHA) is the most comprehensive art bibliography available worldwide, covering European and American visual arts from late antiquity to the present.
Broad in scope, Bibliography of the History of Arts citations encompass fine arts painting, sculpture, drawing, prints, architecture as well as decorative and applied arts crafts, graphic arts, and folk and popular art among them.
BHA (Bibliography of the History of Art/Bibliographie d'histoire de l'art) covers the years 1990-2007; the Getty Web version includes all records with abstracts in French or English and all subject terms in French and English. IBA (International Bibliography of the History of Art) covers 2008 and part of 2009.
Effective May 1, 2010, a third database will be added: RILA (Répertoire de la litterature de l'art), which covers 1975-1989.
The database contains records drawn from journals, as well as books, conference proceedings, essays, exhibition catalogues, selected art dealers catalogues, doctoral dissertations and microform publications.
