In July 2005, Artstor announced the release into the Artstor Digital Library of more than 25,000 images from the former AMICO Library. Now an additional eight institutions, formerly part of AMICO, have contributed a total of 55,000 images to Artstor. This brings the number of images in ARTstor from institutions which were formerly AMICO members to approximately 80,000.

The new institutional contributors to Artstor include:

  • Dallas Museum of Art
  • Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco
  • Indianapolis Museum of Art
  • Library of Congress
  • Los Angeles County Museum of Art
  • Museum of Fine Arts, Boston
  • Philadelphia Museum of Art
  • Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute

While most of these works were originally part of the AMICO library, some museums have contributed additional content that was not originally part of AMICO and/or have provided Artstor with improved images and associated cataloging.

To locate these new images, which have been integrated into the Artstor Image Gallery and its browsing taxonomy, you may use “AMICO” as keyword when searching. For best results, combine “AMICO” with additional search criteria, such as repository or creator name.

All of the following former AMICO members are now contributing content to Arstor:

  • Asia Society
  • The Cleveland Museum of Art
  • Dallas Museum of Art
  • Davis Museum and Cultural Center, Wellesley College
