New collection agreement: American Institute of Indian Studies images
The American Institute of Indian Studies (AIIS) is partnering with ARTstor to distribute approximately 70,000 images depicting Indian art and architecture. Subjects include stone, metal, and terracotta sculpture; numismatics; painting; manuscripts and miniature paintings; as well as Buddhist, Jain, Hindu, and Islamic architecture. These images have been selected from the AIIS Photo Archive in Gurgaon, Haryana, India, which consists of approximately 140,000 photographs, slides, architectural drawings, and site plans. The images in the Photo Archive meticulously document a range of visual traditions from South Asian art and architecture, proceeding from general views to details for each monument and object. Founded in 1961, the AIIS is a consortium of universities and colleges in the United States through which scholars actively engage in teaching and research about India.
