Searching vs. Browsing

Keep in mind that many of these individual prints are very minimally cataloged. This means that even though a particular print depicts an American painting, the catalog record may not include the corresponding subject heading.  Due the recent migration to the OneSearch catalog, at this time it is faster to browse the prints using the guide to the cabinets on this page. 

The art prints do not have call numbers and the catalog records do not note a specific drawer in which the print can be found. If you stumble upon a catalog record for an art print that does not list any subject headings to give clues as to which cabinet or drawer the print is located, a quick Google search on the artist and the artwork can tell you the geographic location and the medium that will lead you to the correct drawer. For example, one can learn that the Adoration of the Magi by Hugo van der Goes is a Flemish painting just from searching on Google. Prints of Flemish paintings can be found in Cabinet 2.
