ARTstor is collaborating with the Amon Carter Museum of American Art to share approximately 3,000 images in the Digital Library.
The collection will include a substantial number of works from the museum’s Artists Archives, which consist of the archival collections of eight prominent American photographers of the twentieth century: Clara Sipprell (1885-1975), Erwin E. Smith (1886-1947), Karl Struss (1886-1981), Laura Gilpin (1891-1979), Nell Dorr (1893-1988), Eliot Porter (1901-1990), Carlotta Corpron (1901-1988), and Helen Post (1907-1979). These photographic collections are comprised of over 22,000 prints plus over 150,000 negatives. Other highlights to be released include Mexican War daguerreotypes and works by Alfred Stieglitz, Edward Curtis, Eadweard Muybridge, David Octavius Hill, and Southworth & Hawes.
The Amon Carter Museum of American Art is committed to acquiring the finest examples of American art, preserving them for future generations, and exhibiting them for the enjoyment of its broad audience. The museum is equally dedicated to researching the works in its collection and providing interpretive materials and programs to serve an educational role devoted to the study of American art.
