Title: The Image User and the Search for Images
Author: Sundt, Christine L., 1944-
Abstract: Users seeking images are faced with many obstacles, not the least of which is how to use words and terms to retrieve an image that resides clearly in their minds. Illustrating a series of paintings by the famous Italian artist, Orazio Gentileschi (1563-1639), I demonstrate that what might be broadly similar in description -- paintings showing the biblical story of Lot following the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah -- can be wholly different in depiction, even by the same artist. Additional barriers to efficient image retrieval include language and cultural differences.
