The Courtauld Institute of Art is collaborating with ARTstor to share approximately 34,000 images of world architecture and sculpture from the Conway Library in the Digital Library. The collection in ARTstor will comprise approximately 22,700 images of architecture and 11,300 images of sculpture selected from the Conway Library’s extensive holdings of historic photographs and cuttings from publications that depict art and architecture from the 5th century BCE to the present. The core of the archive consists of the private collection of Lord William Martin Conway, First Baron Conway of Allington, which the Institute acquired in 1932. Since its inception, the archive has been continuously developed as a teaching and research collection and augmented by donation and purchase, as well as by photographic campaigns undertaken by staff photographers and graduate students to document works and sites in the United Kingdom and Europe. Today, the Conway Library contains more than one million photographs of architecture, architectural drawings, sculpture, and illuminated manuscripts.

The Courtauld Institute of Art is one of the world’s leading centers for the study of art history and conservation. An independent college of the University of London, the Institute offers exceptional resources for students, including The Courtauld Gallery’s collections and outstanding research libraries and image archives. As part of its collaboration with ARTstor, the Institute will also share approximately 8,100 images of works in the permanent collection of The Courtauld Gallery in the Digital Library.
