The books in Bernard Evslin's series Monsters of mythology include wonderful

Medusa, The minotaur, Ladon, and several more.
I never saw another butterfly : children's drawings and poems from Terezin
Concentration Camp....

Indexes mostly seemed to list artists and sometimes paintings, not subjects
of paintings.

We added a really nice one last year called _Art: A World History_
published by DK Publishing, 1997, ISBN 0-7894-2382-0. It is organized by
centuries. The index doesn't list by subjects, though.

I also have the privilege(?) of proctoring a distance
Fine Arts telelearning class.  The book that they use
is marvelous.  It is Discovering Art History by Gerald
F. Brommer (Davis Pub., 1997)
We have the Great Aratists of the Western World - Sets I and II published
by Marshall Cavendish.  I do not think you can look for subjects such as
dragons, etc. however.  They do give excellent biographical and period
information as well as illustrations of works.
