Through a collaboration with Art Resource and Scala Archives (Florence, Italy), ARTstor will ultimately make available approximately 12,000 high quality images of European art and architecture, with a special focus on the archaeology, art and architecture of Italy and on the collections of the major museums in Italy and other European countries.

We are pleased to announce that we have released 2,712 additional images of major Italian and other European work from Scala Archives, bringing the total number of Scala images now available to ARTstor users to approximately 10,571.

Please note that we are hard at work clustering these superior images with other ARTstor images that depict the same works of art. ARTstor clustering helps users find the optimal image of a given work of art. For an example of ARTstor clustering, please search for “Raphael Disputa Scala.”

More information about this collection can be found in the Italian and other European Art (Scala Archives) collection page.

To browse these new ARTstor images, click on “Image Gallery” from the ARTstor “welcome page” and then select “Italian and European Art from Scala Archives.” Or simply search such keyword phrases “Scala Florence” or (for an individual artist) “Scala Vasari” etc

Erich Lessing Culture and Fine Arts Archives comprises over 37,000 large-format color transparencies covering fine arts, archaeology, religion, landscapes, historical places and portraits of historical personalities. Photographs come from over 1000 museums and 2000 other locations all over the world. The Archive contains works by 3,000 artists and portraits of over 1,900 historical personalities.

Art Resource, Scala Group, and ARTstor announced today that they had reached an agreement to collaborate on the digitization and distribution through ARTstor of approximately 12,000 high quality digital images of Italian art and architecture. Scala Archives’ photographic holdings uniquely document the artistic heritage of Italy and Europe from antiquity to the 20th Century, with particular strengths in the art and architecture of the Italian Renaissance. The scholarly literature on these subjects has long been fundamentally dependent upon the Scala Archives, whose color photographs richly illustrate virtually every important monograph on Italian architects, artists, and monuments, as well as textbooks and historical surveys of the art of Italy. Among the monuments, sites, and museums that are expected to be included in this collaboration are the Uffizi Gallery, the Galleria Borghese, the Vatican Museums, the Roman Forum, the Palazzo Pitti, the Brera Museum, the Churches of Ravenna, the Catacombs, Pompeii and very many others.

In reaching this agreement, Dr. Theodore Feder, President of Art Resource, Alvise Passigli, Vice President and CEO of the Scala Group, and James Shulman, ARTstor’s Executive Director, expressed their enthusiasm in collaborating to use digital technologies to make these high quality images of the art and architecture of Italy more broadly available for noncommercial educational and scholarly purposes. “We are delighted to be able to augment ARTstor’s offerings to its many subscribers in a field so essential to the study of art history and archaeology,” comments Dr. Feder. “Our new partnership with Scala Archives and Art Resource represents an important milestone in ARTstor’s ongoing effort to provide teachers, scholars and students with high-quality digital images of key works and monuments of world art,” affirms Shulman. “We are excited at the prospect of working with Scala in an ongoing way to further develop their extraordinarily rich archives and ARTstor’s library of images.”

Scala Archives was founded in Florence, Italy, in 1953 when color photography was coming to be the medium of preference for recording works of art. The firm soon established working relationships with most of Italy’s museums as well as a number of other institutions outside of Italy. It has at one time or another served as the official archive for many of these collections, including the Vatican Museums. The archive now numbers some 80,000 large format (5 x 7″ and 8 x 10″) transparencies covering all periods of Western art from antiquity to the present. Scala transparencies are offered for use in books, magazines, prints, CD-ROM, television, film, and publicity.

Established in 1968, Art Resource is the principal source of fine art images for commercial and scholarly publications and other contexts in the United States.
