Benezit Dictionary of Artists


Since 1911, the Benezit Dictionary of Artists has been the unrivaled, indispensable work of reference for art historians, dealers, collectors and students. Benezit provides both the amateur and the professional with important factual information about almost any painter, sculptor, engraver or draftsman of all countries and schools, from antiquity to the present day. From the 1920s to the present, a team of specialists has been working on it full-time, adding thousands of entries with each of its five editions.

Revised and Expanded

Not only is this new edition of Benezit in English, it is also heavily updated and greatly expanded. Since the publication of the last edition in 1999, a team of 150 editors, art historians and translators, has been working to complete the monumental 2006 edition. Older entries have been updated and expanded, and new entries have been added, bringing thousands of changes to this new edition.

Features include biographical entries on artists, descriptions of museums and galleries where the works of an artist can be found, graphics (including artist signatures, monograms and stamps of sale), auction records, and bibliographies of written works about the artist.

All these combine to make the 2006 Benezit Dictionary of Artists even more compelling and useful to a much wider audience than ever before.

Now Published in English for the First Time

The first English-language edition of Benezit is  ready from spring 2006. This edition is also the largest ever—over 170,000 entries, comprising over 20,000 pages in 14 volumes. Published in France by Editions Gründ, it is distributed in worldwide by El Buen Libro.

The History of the Benezit.

Since 1911, the Benezit has continually evolved and improved to become the unrivalled and indispensable work of reference for the art world.

The first of the three volumes of the Dictionnaire critique et documentaire des Peintres, Sculpteurs, Dessinateurs et Graveurs was published in 1911. The size of the project was such that the first publisher abandoned it. Librairie Gründ took it up at the beginning of the 1920s. This first edition, written by Emmanuel Bénézit and a team of international specialists, provided both the amateur and the professional with the most important factual information about almost any painter, sculptor, engraver or draughtsman, from all corners of the globe, from Antiquity to the present day. Resolutely universal, the Benezit was the first of its kind.

In the subsequent eight-volume edition, published between 1948 and 1955, the total number of artists listed and the content of each entry increased considerably to include bibliographies, museum listings and prices fetched by works at public auction. By now as essential working tool, the Benezit gave not only biographical data, but also a general presentation of an artist’s work.

The ten-volume Benezit, which appeared in 1976, took a team of specialists seven years to complete. This edition established the dictionary as the vital source of documentation for art historians and dealers.

The much-awaited 1999 edition of the Benezit was published in 14 volumes. Over a period of more than ten years, with the help of a new computerised database and more readily available source material, a team of art historians reworked and updated existing entries and created thousands of new entries to bring the dictionary right up to date.

Today, the Benezit is used daily in most libraries, museums, auction houses and galleries all over the world, and owes its reputation partly to its staying power, but mainly to the quality of its information.

A new edition of the dictionary, updated, and in English for the first time, has just been published (20 March 2006). It can be ordered right now, at a special price.
