More than 12,000 images from The American Institute of Indian Studies (AIIS) are now available in Artstor. This is the first release of images for the collection that will eventually include approximately 60,000 images and document a range of visual traditions from South Asian art and architecture, proceeding from general views to details for each monument and object. 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. 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.
