How to use the different search types:
The Quick Search is the best place to start if you don't have a specific enquiry. Enter a keyword or words e.g. wine glass, dog, Turner, Pre-Raphaelite, etc. This search is quite extensive and can produce a long list of results. You may wish to refine your search by using one of the other search types in the Detailed Search Option.
The Detailed Search Option is ideal if you have a specific enquiry. You can search on one or more defined fields such as title/object name, person, place, date, material etc.
The results will appear in the contact sheet view as a series of thumbnail images. If you would like to change the view of the results as a list only, click on the 'list' option at the top of the results. You can return to the table format by selecting 'list view'.
You can choose how many items you wish to display on the page by using the display drop down menu.
You can sort the results by object, date and artist/maker.
Simply click on any thumbnail image to take you to a detailed record page where more information is given about that particular artwork.
The detailed record page gives more information about the artwork you have chosen. If you click on the enlarge image option, a larger version will appear on a new page.
