A study of the work of a single artist or group/movement of artists. There are many of these available in the library. Look in the library catalog under the artist's name. Most of the monograph's contain excellent interpretations of the artist's works and some are comprehensive in covering the artist's full repetoire and literature about the artist (bibliography). A monograph which covers the breadth of an artist's production is referred to as a catalogue raisonne.
