Initiatives

In recognition of the fact that researchers today require remote access to unique resources, the Library has set the digitization of the entire Photoarchive as an essential strategic goal. The Library has digitized its collection of 57,000 rare, original negatives of works of art through several grant-funded projects and making it freely available through the Frick Digital Image Archive. Nearly half of the digitized negatives are accessible through ARTstor.

Acquisitions

The Photoarchive is actively acquiring digital images from museums and independent researchers.
