ARTstor is releasing quite a number of new image collections as 2011 draws to a close. For the complete list of new releases, click here. A few of the most interesting of these recent collections are listed below (you can get additional information by clicking on each link):
- Baltimore Museum of Art (one of this region’s major institutions, most famous for its Cone Collection of late 19th- and early 20th-century modern art)
- QTVR Panoramas of World Architecture (more of those fun 3-D “QuickTime Virtual Reality” [QTVR] panoramas from Columbia University; this update includes mainly sites in Japan and Chicago)
- Via Lucis (Medieval religious architecture in France and Spain)
- Museum of the City of New York (a treasure trove of historical views of the city, including photographs by Jacob Riis and Berenice Abbott)
If you have gone to ARTstor’s search page in the past few days, you may have been greeted by a new image. The Macintosh 128K Home Computer pictured there is the original model released by Apple in 1984, and the one marketed that year in the company’s famous Super Bowl commercial. It’s ARTstor’s low-key tribute to the late Steve Jobs, Apple’s co-founder.
This image also highlights the Museum of Modern Art’s Architecture and Design collection in ARTstor, which includes images of a number of Apple products at MoMA. Also among the nearly 7000 images in this collection are works by such designers as Louis Comfort Tiffany, Hector Guimard, Antoni Gaudí, Marcel Breuer, and Frank Lloyd Wright.
Two new image collections focused on art and architecture in the Middle East are now available in ARTstor. Click on the links below for ARTstor’s description of each collection:
