ARTstor has collaborated with the Foundation for Landscape Studies to share approximately 5,000 contemporary photographs and historical illustrations of gardens and landscapes from around the world in the Digital Library. The collection provides an overview of landscape studies, encompassing all cultural landscapes, including gardens, parks, cities, suburbs, rural areas, and the humanized wilderness. A subset of the images, approximately 500, consists of engravings depicting gardens and landscapes from rare books dating from the 16th through early 20th century.
The Foundation for Landscape Studies is a not-for-profit corporation with a mission to foster an active understanding of the importance of place in human life. Elizabeth Barlow Rogers, president of the Foundation, is a noted landscape historian, park preservationist, and writer.
