Artstor and Georgetown University’s James J. O’Donnell are collaborating to share 21 images of Deir Mar Musa, a monastic compound north of Damascus, in the Digital Library.

Deir Mar Musa began as a Byzantine watchtower, served as a medieval hermitage and modern monastery, fell into disrepair and neglect, and was then brought back to life a few years ago as a monastic community and place for Christian and Muslim Syrians to meet in mutual respect. O’Donnell’s photographs document the site and its murals, which date ca. 11th-13th centuries.

Artstor is sharing 101 images of artworks by Louis Henri Jean Charlot (1898–1979) from the Jean Charlot Collection at the University of Hawai’i at Manoa.

Charlot’s output of drawings, paintings, murals, prints, sculptures, illustrations and cartoons, as well as books, articles, and other writings was prodigious. Wherever he lived—whether in France, Mexico, New York, Georgia, Colorado, Hawai‘i or Fiji—his life was full of significant connections with artists and writers, indigenous and working people, influential figures in art and educational institutions, and the Roman Catholic Church. He preserved the records of his encounters, together with those of his own creative and scholarly life, in the original artworks, archival documents, research photographs, audiovisual materials, memorabilia and the publications of his personal library that became the basis of the Jean Charlot Collection.
