Artstor and the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) are now sharing more than 300 images from the Gallery’s permanent collection in the Digital Library. The AGO will eventually contribute selections from their Prints and Drawings collection, which covers the history of Western drawing and printmaking from 1400 to the present, as they undertake a major digitization project for this curatorial department.

Thanks to Artstor’s agreement with SODRAC, the principal society for reproduction rights in Canada representing major international and Canadian artists, works by contemporary artists in the AGO’s Collection in SODRAC’s repertoire will be available to the more than 1,500 institutions that subscribe to the Artstor Digital Library worldwide, including over 60 colleges, universities, museums, and schools in Canada.
