ARTstor Digital Library has launched more than 2,000 images of architecture in California from the archives of Robert Winter at Occidental College. A noted architectural historian, Winter photographed buildings and sites throughout California for over 40 years. His photographs document major 19th and 20th century styles from Beaux-Arts to Art Deco, Spanish Colonial to Mission Revival, with a particular focus on the Arts and Crafts movement. In 1965, Winter co-authored the original Guide to Architecture in Southern California, still the standard source for the study of the architecture and built environment in the greater Los Angeles area. Winter’s other publications further explored the role architecture in the history of American society and culture. His images are available due to the generous donation of his slide collection to Occidental College.
