ARTstor has collaborated with the Seattle Art Museum to make available more than 2,700 high-quality images of world art from the museum’s permanent collection. The Seattle Art Museum is renowned for its collection of Asian art, including works from Japan, China, Korea, India, the Himalayas, and Southeast Asia. Also notable are its holdings in African, American, European, modern and contemporary, Native and Meso-American, and Oceanic and Aboriginal art. The collection in ARTstor features highlights from the permanent collection of nearly 25,000 objects from a wide range of cultures and time periods. In addition, the museum has shared more than 30 outstanding European paintings, which were donated by the Samuel H. Kress Foundation in 1961, through The Samuel H. Kress Collection in the Digital Library.
