Art History

Large-scale images of art work

These images have been languishing in storage since the late 1970's.  I finally got around to digitizing them so they can be shared.  Many of these pieces may be available elsewhere on the web; however, the images behind the thumbnails on this page are extremely large scale.  If you need detail, this is the place to get it.
