Now available in Artstor: Architectural photography of Philadelphia by Ralph Lieberman
ARTstor has sponsored an extended photographic campaign in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania by Ralph Lieberman focusing on the city’s historic and contemporary architecture, as well as its public art and sculpture. This campaign complements the substantial body of work Lieberman previously did in Philadelphia, which provided the images for Michael J. Lewis’ study of the architecture of Frank Furness, an American architect of the Victorian era who designed more than 600 buildings, mostly in Philadelphia. Lewis, a professor of art at Williams College served as a consultant to the campaign.
Artstor is also sponsoring an ongoing campaign to document museum architecture in the United States. To date, Lieberman has photographed museums in the Midwest, including the Akron Art Museum, the Toledo Museum of Art, and the Detroit Institute of Arts, among others. In addition to new photography by Lieberman, Artstor has partnered with Harvard University to digitize the Ralph Lieberman Archive of Renaissance and Baroque Architecture.
