The Department of Photography announced this week a new website focused on the museum’s Alfred Stieglitz photography collection. The interactive collection features high-quality reproductions of all 244 photographs in the collection gifted by his widow, Goergia O’Keefe in 1949. The majority of prints are by Stieglitz himself, but also by Ansel Adam, Julia Margaret Cameran, Paul Strand, Edward Steichen, and many others in his circle. Furthermore, the site highlights new conservation analysis, 900 images, scholarly essays, and downloadable files. Explore the site at media.artic.edu/stieglitz
Civilwarinart.org makes nearly 130 works of art from seven Chicago cultural organizations accessible to the public. While the website is aimed at elementary and high school students, some of its resources may be useful to art historians. The site includes a high-resolution, zoomable gallery of objects as well as an extensive glossary of close to 200 art and historical terms and biographies.
