AskArt.com is a research service providing biographical and pricing information on American art and artists. Claiming to list 25,000 artists, AskArt.com offers general biographical information, descriptions of works (many with images) both sold and unsold, and an abbreviated bibliography. The database exclusively covers American painting, sculpture, and illustrations, and includes auction sale prices and statistics like average price per work, highest price paid, and average price per square inch. This site is a useful place to start one's research, but it has both content flaws (noticeable gaps and loose definitions) and objectivity issues (dealers with financial stake as content providers).
