ARTstor is a repository of images of art, architecture, and design. The images are sourced from museums, libraries, archives, and photographers. ARTstor includes a suite of software tools to view, present, and manage images for research and teaching. ARTstor is supplemented by additional content, including publicly available image collections and locally-produced NYU collections.
***Announcement: On August 1, 2024, Artstor will merge with JSTOR. Moving forward, JSTOR will serve as a search platform for the images that were once hosted on Artstor along with the usual JSTOR content. Contact Giana Ricci, Librarian for the Fine Arts, email@example.com with questions.***
In order to download images, users must create an ARTstor account. Faculty members may request privileges that allow the creation of image groups, personal collections, and more.
Oxford Art Online allows searching across both the Benezit Dictionary of Artists and Grove Art Online. The Benezit Dictionary of Artists is a standard reference collection of artists' biographies. It is international in scope, and covers all periods and styles. In addition to biographies, many entries include bibliographies, auction sales data, and images of signatures, monograms, or other marks of identification. Grove Art Online is composed of signed, scholarly encyclopedia entries on all aspects of global art, design and architecture. Individual articles are updated periodically, and new articles reflecting contemporary developments in the arts are added on a regular basis.
