ARTstor Adds New Collections: Georgia O’Keefe and Architecture of Britain


The library database ARTstor has just added two exciting new collections.  Now available – Architecture of Britian, images from Brian Davis – offers 1,600 images from the archive of Brian Davis. The ARTstor press release states that “The collection documents architectural and garden sites in Europe, primarily architecture in Britain from the Middle Ages to the early 20th century. Images include strong coverage of English architecture from the 17th through 19th centuries, with examples of buildings designed by architects such as Inigo Jones, Christopher Wren, Robert Adam, John Soane, John Nash, Joseph Paxton, and Augustus W. N. Pugin. There is also a group of images documenting gardens and landscape architecture in England, Russia, and Italy.”

Check out the collection! Note: off campus users will be prompted for ASC username and password.

Also, ARTstor will be partnering with the Georgia O’Keefe museum to share 1,200 images of works by the artist – the entire collection of the museum.  The ARTstor press release states that “The collection in ARTstor will present the entire range of O’Keeffe’s oeuvre, from her early experiments with abstraction to mature works produced in New York and New Mexico.” The collection has not yet been digitized, but keep checking back with ARTstor!
