New ARTstor Collections and Updates
ARTstor has recently added and expanded some exciting collections in the digital library:
ARTstor has collaborated with George Eastman House to share more than 1,000 additional photographs in the Digital Library. This addition includes 600 images by Lewis Hines along with works by pivotal figures such as Alfred Stieglitz, Alvin Langdon Coburn, Eadweard J. Muybridge, Southworth & Hawes, and Walker Evans.
ARTstor has released more than 4,000 additional images from the Peabody Museum of Natural History’s permanent collection and photographic archives in the Digital Library. The Museum is contributing approximately 10,000 images from its archival collections, a majority of which consist of archaeological and ethnographic objects from throughout the Caribbean, including Antigua, Cuba, Puerto Rico, Haiti, Trinidad, the Dominican Republic and other islands, as well as northern South America.
The entire collection of nearly 6,000 images from the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Brooklyn Museum Costumes is now available in the Images for Academic Publishing (IAP) program. In addition to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, IAP’s founding partner, ARTstor is pleased to announce that seven important institutions are participating, including: The Getty Research Institute, Indianapolis Museum of Art, Yale University Art Gallery, Princeton University Art Museum, Northwestern University Library, and University of California, Irvine, and Bryn Mawr College.
ARTstor and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation have released more than 750 images of major artworks from the permanent collection in the Digital Library. The images document the Guggenheim Museum’s superb holdings in modern and contemporary art by such significant artists as Louise Bourgeois, Paul Cézanne, Marc Chagall, Willem de Kooning, Paul Klee, Robert Mapplethorpe, Claes Oldenburg, Cindy Sherman, and Vincent van Gogh, among many others.
