Recently the University Library had ARTstor load the Saskia Image Collection into our institutional collections area of ARTstor. We have access to this wonderful resource through our membership in the CARLI Consortium. You will find the Saskia collection listed under “Institutional Collections” when you first enter ARTstor.
The collection contains 30,000 digital imagesof paintings, sculpture and architecture, including images from many important collections: ThePrado, the Kunsthistorisches Museum, the Uffizi, and the Louve as well as archaeological sites in Greece, Italy, Turkey and Egype. The images can be displayed and downloaded in high-resolution format. Additionally, the descriptive data about the images includes references to the occurrences of these images in 19 major art history texts, including Garner’s Art Through the Ages, 12th edition; Understanding Art, 7th edition; Art and Ideas, 10th edition; and Discovering Art History, 4th edition.
