ARTstor expanded the Mark Rothko collection in the Digital Library last year and we continue to work with many artists ’ estates and studios to make works by a variety of artists available for teaching and research. These relationships are critical because estates and studios enable us to share images otherwise unavailable to the public. For example, we recently launched a collection of over 300 works by the American painter Jon Schueler, who came out of the American school of abstraction in the mid-20 th century. Many of these works are owned by the estate and otherwise unavailable.
We recently launched nearly 4,000 of a total contribution that will eventually total over 55,000 images from the Museum of the City of New York. The first batch includes amazing photography by Jacob Riis, including images from his legendary book How the Other Half Lives. The launch also includes work by pioneering American documentary photographer Berenice Abbott, whose Changing New York series from the 1930s includes some of most famous photos of New York City.
