Before you can start your search, you will need to come up with a list of keywords to use. Usually, when doing research, you are trying to answer a research question. A good way to come up with some intitial keywords is to look at the nouns in your research question (artist's names, concepts, persons, places, specific art works).
Although you would never quote from Wikipedia, it is actually a good place to begin your research. It can also include links to useful resources that are considered academic.
You can also use dictionaries and encyclopedias in order to get background information. Here is a list of dictionaries and encyclopedias taht are specific to the study of Art and Art History:
