ARTstor and Connecticut College have partnered to release 420 images of Chinese and Japanese art to the Digital Library. This collection is primarily drawn from the Chu-Griffis Collection of Chinese paintings from the 15th to 20th centuries, which focus on landscapes, flowers, and animals. Other images come from two sets of Japanese woodcuts–one from the Department of Special Collections at Connecticut College’s Charles E. Shain Library and the other from Caroline Black, former professor and founder of the college’s botany department. Additionally, there is a small set of Chinese ivory sculptures depicting Lohan figures, which was donated by alumna Kathryne C. Simons.
