I cannot find what I’m looking for, what should I do?
As an expanding resource, it is possible we have not yet published an article on your search term – if this is the case, please let us know and we can look to add it in the future. However, the inclusion or exclusion of special characters may affect your results so be aware of this when searching. You can use the filters on the left of your screen to filter your results by subject, places, movement or types, as well as A-Z. For extra discoverability you can follow the related searches at the bottom of some entries – to give you a selection of related articles to choose from - or the related articles will take you directly to another article.
Do you have permission for all images?
Every image should include the title along with a copyright © line, acknowledging permission to reproduce the image.

This has not been possible in every case, however, and the publishers would welcome correspondence from any rights holders who we have been unable to trace. Any omissions bought to our attention will be remedied in future updates.
