Art Net

If your artist is still creating, you may have a better chance to find their pieces on Artnet.com, a gallery and art market database. Some artist profiles include biographies, dealers, and the galleries where their pieces are housed. The Kara Walker biography below can be found at: http://www.artnet.com/artists/kara-walker/
