Frick Digital Image Archive

The Frick Art Reference Library in New York has just announced the online launch of the Frick Digital Image Archive. Drawing from the Frick’s vast photoarchive, this inaugural release includes 15,000 images documenting many lesser-known works of art that were in American private collections or on the New York art market between 1922 and 1967.

The Frick is also making available the documentation (without images) for these works plus another 110,000 works recorded in its photoarchive through Arcade, the catalog of the New York Art Resources Consortium (NYARC).

You can read more here in the Frick’s press release. As anyone who has ever used the Frick’s photoarchive can attest, this is a major new online resource for scholars.
