The Arts

Portrait of a Negress, 1800 Marie-Guillemine Benoist [Public Domain]
"Art history spans the entire history of humankind, from prehistoric times to the twenty-first century."

Art Resource
"Art Resource is the world's largest fine art stock photo archive, with more than 1,000,000 searchable fine art images from the world's leading sources, available for licensing to all media."

Art History Resources on the Web
Covers various periods in art history

Contemporary African Art
"African art history has played a significant role in shaping the culture and history of the world. The belief that Africa is the cradle of the history of mankind is virtually unshakeable. The origins of African art history lie long before recorded history, preserved in the obscurity of time. Rock Art is centuries old, while shell beads fashioned for a necklace have been recovered in a cave in the furthest reach of the southern peninsula of South Africa that are 75 000 years old."

NYPL Digital Collections website
"NYPL Digital Gallery provides free and open access to over 800,000 images digitized from the The New York Public Library's vast collections, including illuminated manuscripts, historical maps, vintage posters, rare prints, photographs and more."

People of Color in European Art History
"The focus of this blog is to showcase works of art from European history that feature People of Color. All too often, these works go unseen in museums, Art History classes, online galleries, and other venues because of retroactive whitewashing of Medieval Europe, Scandinavia, and Asia."

Scholars Resource
"Scholars Resource offers high quality digital images for teaching at educational institutions. We believe that when you license to own the images critical to your curriculum, you are secure in the knowledge that your program/courses will continue and grow, regardless of what might happen to budgets or subscriptions."
