Carnegie International Exhibition, 57th Edition, 2018: Provenance Research Resources

A research guide to the 57th Carnegie International Exhibition at the Carnegie Museum of Art in Pittsburgh, PA.

Provenance Research Resources

Provenance is the history of ownership of items of value, usually works of art or books. A full provenance provides a documented history that can help prove ownership, assign the work to a known artist, and establish the authenticity of a work of art. The resources listed on this page may be helpful to researchers interested in conducting provenance research on works of art in past Carnegie Internationals, or those interested in museum collection and documentation processes.
