New collection agreement: Ruth Chandler Williamson Gallery (Scripps College)
Artstor is collaborating with the Ruth Chandler Williamson Gallery at Scripps College to share approximately 800 images of works from the permanent collection in the Digital Library. The collection in Artstor will consist of highlights from several special collections. The Marer Collection of contemporary ceramics is international in scope, comprising American, British, Japanese, Korean, and Mexican works. The Young Collection focuses on Impressionist oil paintings by 19th and 20th century American artists, including George Bellows, Mary Cassatt, William Glackens, Frederick Childe Hassam, Robert Henri, Winslow Homer, Maurice Prendergast, and Theodore Robinson, among others. The Gallery houses a teaching collection of Japanese woodblock prints and illustrated books from the late 17th century to late 20th century, featuring works by the artists Yoshu Chikanobu (1838-1912) and Tsukioka Yoshitoshi (1839-1892). Another important teaching collection traces the history of photography with a selection of works from the 19th through the 21st century. Finally, there is the Samella Lewis Contemporary Art Collection, which comprises works by contemporary artists with a special focus on art by women and African-American artists, such as Elizabeth Catlett, Samella Lewis, Faith Ringgold, and Alison Saar.
