Artstor is collaborating with the Colby College Museum of Art to share approximately 2,600 images from the permanent collection, which specializes in American paintings, sculpture, and works on paper from the 18th century to the present. Notable American artists represented in the permanent collection include George Bellows, Albert Bierstadt, William Merritt Chase, Chuck Close, John Singleton Copley, Dan Flavin, Marsden Hartley, Winslow Homer, Sol LeWitt, John Marin, Agnes Martin, Elizabeth Murray, Georgia O’Keeffe, Richard Serra, Kara Walker, James McNeill Whistler, and Terry Winters. A highlight of the museum’s collection is approximately 760 works by the American artist Alex Katz (b. 1927), which will be represented in Artstor. The museum’s holdings also include examples of American folk art, European prints and drawings, Greek and Roman antiquities, and Chinese art and ceramics.
Founded in 1959, the Colby College Museum of Art has built a significant permanent collection of more than 6,000 works. The museum serves both as a teaching resource for Colby College and as an active cultural institution for the residents of Maine and visitors to the state.
