ARTstor Digital Library is collaborating with the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco to share approximately 2,000 additional images from the permanent collection.
Comprising the de Young in Golden Gate Park and the Legion of Honor in Lincoln Park, the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco is the largest public arts institution in San Francisco and one of the largest art museums in the United States. The additions will bring the total available in the Digital Library to nearly 18,000 images of paintings, sculpture, costumes, decorative arts, and works on paper.
The de Young is San Francisco’s oldest museum and houses one of the finest collections of American paintings in the United States, with more than 1,000 paintings from the 17th through the 20th centuries, along with non-Western art from Africa, Oceania, and the Americas, as well as a collection of costume from the 18th century to the present and one of the most important collections of European tapestries in the United States.
The Legion of Honor is home to a collection of European paintings from the 14th through the 20th centuries, European decorative arts, furniture, and sculpture, including a world-famous collection of Rodin sculpture, ancient art including antiquities from throughout the Mediterranean and the Near East, including Greece, Rome, Egypt, Assyria, and Mesopotamia; and one of largest collections of works on paper in the United States, spanning six centuries and features works by artists such as Dürer, Gauguin, Malevich, Kandinsky, and O’Keeffe, as well as Japanese prints and Persian and Indian miniatures.
