AskART is an online database containing over 42,000 American artists from the early 16th-Century through the present. Criteria for artist inclusion are that the artist was born in the United States, spent a significant part of their career here, or although briefly in residence, created work of ongoing historical interest to Americans. Our website welcomes collectors, gallery owners, researchers, appraisers, museum and library personnel, insurers, scholars, art aficionados---anyone with interest in American two and three-dimensional original fine art.
