Locate lists of artists arranged by name on the websites of the National Gallery of Art and Artists' Signatures. The former website includes Hans von Aachen, Jacobus Theodorus Abels, Leonardo de Vinci, and Johan Christian Dahl, and the latter website has Donald Shaw MacLaughlan and others.
Search the list on the National Gallery of Art website by clicking on the individual letter buttons, noting that artist names are arranged by last names. The website then pulls up a list of names within the letter, and includes the artists' countries of origin and their dates of birth and death. Click on the individual entries to view more information about each artist, and to see which of their works is on display at the National Gallery of Art. Some entries also show names and small images of the artists' paintings or drawings.
The Artists' Signatures website also provides letter buttons you can use to search names. Click on the entries to view individual artist profiles.
