Try Out the New Image Search Prototype in the JSTOR Sandbox
Do databases give you the results you want when you search images? Search across both content and images in the JSTOR Sandbox and then comment on the development of this new search prototype. Your search results display in tabbed areas: Articles, Images from Articles, and meta-data from ARTstor. When you choose Images from Articles, you see the article (including reviews) citation information and thumbnails, with annotations on type, size, museums, gift funds, and private collection ownership.
Stable URL links make it convenient to use for teaching and research. From the JSTOR main search page, choose the link at the top of the page for the JSTOR Sandbox. Choose the JSTOR/ARTstor Search Prototype and enter a query for
"Jackson Pollock." From the results, select the tab for "Images from Articles." Sort for relevance, and read items like Diane Johnson's review of Jackson Pollock: An American Saga by Steven Naifeh, Gregory White. (Archives of American Art Journal, Vol. 29, No.3/4 (1989), pp.61-64)
The stable URL takes you directly to the complete book review and the 1940s photo of Pollock standing in front of his paintings plus a photo portrait of Pollock from the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution.
Save up to 200 citations in a search session, and email, view, print, or export them. Try out the search prototype, and use the comment feature on the results page. JSTOR is licensed for Case individuals, and remote access requires an active VPN connection.
