A favourite database for many, ARTstor includes over a million images in the arts, architecture, humanities, and social sciences. It is continually expanding and has recently added over 1,400 images of works from the Modern Museum of Art’s (MoMA) permanent collection.
The MoMA collection in ARTstor provides a comprehensive overview of major artists and artistic movements during the 19th until today. It includes works by Umberto Boccioni, Alexander Calder, Paul Cézanne, Marc Chagall, Giorgio de Chirico, Salvador Dalí, Marcel Duchamp, Paul Gauguin, Natalia Goncharova, Frida Kahlo, Georgia O'Keeffe, Henri Matisse, Piet Mondrian, Claude Monet, Pablo Picasso, Jackson Pollock, Vincent van Gogh, Andy Warhol, and many more.
The MoMA images, like all images in ARTstor, are available to use for select academic and non-commercial purposes (such as in a lecture, conference presentation, or this e-newsletter). Furthermore, a selection of images in ARTstor — those that are included in the Images for Academic Publishing Program (IAP) — can be used in academic publications such as books or journal articles.
Interested in how you can take advantage of ARTstor’s digital images in your work? Stay tuned! The Library will be offering its first ARTstor workshop in the winter term, covering all the ways researchers can make use of this rich image library in their academic endeavours.
