Epstein Photographic Archive
The Archive consists of over 168,000 photographs of artworks and other objects related to art-historical research. These photographs were, for the most part, acquired by Max Epstein in the 1930’s, and donated by him to the Department of Art History. The core of the collection consists of duplicates of photographs from the collection of Sir Robert Witt, now the Witt Library of Photographs at the Courtauld Institute of the University of London. Also represented are rare and historic photographs. The collection grew through gifts from the Art Institute of Chicago, the National Gallery of Art, and individual members of the University faculty. At present, the Archive is a unique resource for scholars, providing images of objects, views and details unavailable elsewhere.

The Epstein Photographic Archive resides in the Regenstein Library, Room 420. A small selection of images have been digitized and are available in Luna here.
