Artstor and Princeton University have collaborated to release approximately 4,500 images of architecture from the archives of William L. MacDonald in the Digital Library.
The collection in the Artstor Digital Library documents the city of Rome in great depth, as well as ancient Egyptian, Greek, and Roman architecture, Byzantine and Baroque architecture, and American architecture. The photographs were taken by MacDonald over a period of more than 40 years and include sites that now are largely inaccessible and monuments that have permanently changed.
MacDonald was Alice Pratt Brown Professor of the History of Art at Smith College, where he concentrated on the architectural history of Classical Rome. His personal collection of slides is held in the Visual Resources Collection of the Department of Art and Archaeology at Princeton University.
