ARTH 3650/4650/5650: Histories of Photography/Photographic Theory: Artists' CVs and Bios

If you can't find this information using Google, go to Artnet, a free directory of artists and galleries. Search for your artist to see works for sale at galleries. Google the gallery selling the artist's work to find a CV for the artist, or contact that gallery to obtain it.
