New agreement: University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Art Collection

artstor_logo_rgbThe Artstor Digital Library and the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee are collaborating to share 7,000 images of works from the UWM Art Collection.
The UWM Art Collection encompasses 7,600 objects – western and non-western art, ancient to contemporary. Areas of special strength include prints from the 15th to 20th century, Greek and Russian Icons, American folk art, and ethnographic collections of Africa and Oceania. The Blanche and Henry Rosenberg Collection of Modern Art is an impressive grouping of two- and three-dimensional works representing the major stylistic trends of the first half of the twentieth century. Notable artists featured in this collection of over 300 objects includes Jean Arp, Joan Miró, Henry Moore, Victor Vasarely, Alexander Calder, and Pablo Picasso. The Rogers Family Collection of Greek and Russian Icons represents a remarkable array of icons, many dating to the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. The collection also consists of numerous liturgical objects, finely executed in gold, bronze, wood, and enamel, including reliquary and processional crosses, chalices, spoons, as well as secular pieces such as Byzantine coins and jewelry. The Emile H. Mathis II Print Collection is an expansive assemblage of 1,500 works on paper spanning 500 years of art history. The collection, which represents Mathis’ lifetime passion for fine art, includes excellent examples of 17th century etchings by Jacques Callot and Rembrandt van Rijn; 19th century French, British, and American printmakers including Francis Seymour Haden, James Abbott McNeill Whistler, and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec; early 20th century prints by Kathe Kollwitz, Pablo Picasso, and Joan Miró; and extensive holdings of late 20th century American artists: Jasper Johns, Andy Warhol, Jim Dine, Claes Oldenburg, and Robert Rauschenberg. The African art collection provides an encyclopedic overview of 19th and early 20th century African art, with objects from nearly one hundred different cultural areas and twenty-three different countries.
The UWM Art Collection is housed in the UWM Art History Gallery and serves both the campus and greater Milwaukee community by providing access to the collection through exhibitions, research, and special programming. The gallery’s objective complements the University’s educational and outreach mission. As envisioned, both serve as pedagogical vehicles for enhancing art education at all levels, fostering interdepartmental and interdisciplinary relationships, and creating community partnerships.
