ARTstor is digitizing and will distribute more than 100,000 images from Larry Qualls’ unique archive of contemporary art images. For nearly three decades, Larry Qualls has been documenting contemporary art exhibitions at galleries and other exhibition spaces throughout New York City and elsewhere.

The archive is being scanned and made available systematically, beginning with the more recent gallery shows. The collection available in the Digital Library now includes images of works of art shown during the 1997 spring, summer and fall gallery seasons. This current release of 4,283 images brings the total number of available Qualls images to nearly 30,000. Subsequent releases in ARTstor will document earlier and more current gallery seasons and will be released as they are cataloged by Larry Qualls.

To browse and view all the images included in this collection: from the “Welcome Page,” click on “ARTstor Collections” and then select “Contemporary Art from the Larry Qualls Archive” from the resulting list. Or simply search using the keyword “Qualls.”

For more information about this collection, see the Contemporary Art (Larry Qualls) collection page on our website.

Because of copyright considerations, only images of works by artists represented by artists’ rights groups with which ARTstor has existing agreements or with individual artists with whom ARTstor has reached agreements, may be made available internationally. ARTstor expects that vast majority of the Larry Qualls archive will be made available in the United States.
