Artstor and the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) are now sharing more than 300 images from the Gallery’s permanent collection in the Digital Library. The AGO will eventually contribute selections from their Prints and Drawings collection, which covers the history of Western drawing and printmaking from 1400 to the present, as they undertake a major digitization project for this curatorial department.
Thanks to Artstor’s agreement with SODRAC, the principal society for reproduction rights in Canada representing major international and Canadian artists, works by contemporary artists in the AGO’s Collection in SODRAC’s repertoire will be available to the more than 1,500 institutions that subscribe to the Artstor Digital Library worldwide, including over 60 colleges, universities, museums, and schools in Canada.Continue Reading »

Artstor and the New York School of Interior Design (NYSID) are now sharing more than 450 images of pochoir prints and photographic depictions of interior retail architecture and design in Paris from 1928-1932.
The pochoir process, made by applying layers of paint guided by thin zinc or copper cut-out stencils, is characterized by its crisp edges and brilliant colors. Pochoirillustration was popular in 1920s Paris and was often featured in French fashion journals such as Le Jardin des Dames et des Modes and the Gazette du Bon Ton. Both the pochoir and photographic plates represent Art Deco design in the period following the International Exposition of Modern Industrial and Decorative Arts of 1925. Continue Reading »
