Artstor has collaborated with the Emilio Sanchez Foundation to share 79 images of works by the Cuban-born American artist Emilio Sanchez (1921–1999), which are now available in the Digital Library. Sanchez is best known for paintings and prints that depict the play of light and shadow on architectural structures. He also explored light and compositional structure through non-architectural themes, including still lifes and landscapes. Internationally renowned, Sanchez has had many solo and group exhibitions around the world and his works are represented in numerous private and public collections

The Emilio Sanchez Foundation is a nonprofit organization that preserves and promotes the legacy of the artist Emilio Sanchez through research, exhibitions, and publications. Created by the artist’s will, the foundation preserves an archive, which documents the life and career of the artist through personal papers, sketchbooks, personal journals, and photographs. The foundation also maintains an extensive art collection of oil paintings and works on paper, all by the artist. The images and cataloging information to be displayed in the Digital Library have been provided by the foundation.
