Additional Images to be added to The Walters Art Museum Collection
ARTstor is pleased to announce an agreement to release more images to the Walters Art Museum Collection. The museum’s collections are currently represented in ARTstor by over 600 images, with a focus on paintings and drawings. The museum will soon contribute an additional 4,400 images of works from the permanent collection, bringing the total contribution to approximately 5,000 images.
The Walters Museum of Art was born from the private collections of William T. Walters and his son, Henry. During the 19th and early 20th centuries, they collected a diverse range of objects from around the world, together, amassing nearly 22,000 works of art, building that formed the foundation of the museum’s collections. Upon his death in 1931, Henry Walters bequeathed the core of his collection to the City of Baltimore “for benefit of the public.”
The museum contains over 30,000 works of art, a comprehensive collection ranging from the 3rd millennium B.C. to the early 20th century A.D. Its holdings include the ancient art of Egypt, Greece, and Rome, European art from the Medieval, Renaissance, and Baroque periods, 18th- and 19th-century European and American art, and Asian and Islamic art, as well as an outstanding manuscript and rare book collection.
