ARTstor has just added several new collections to their image holdings: 400 new images from the permanent collection of the Barnes Foundation (including 59 works by Henri Matisse); a themed collection of about 300 images based on the Biblical story of Judith and Holofernes (funded by a grant from the Jessica E. Smith and Kevin R. Brine Charitable Trust); and 300 images from the Renzo Piano Building Workshop. ARTstor has also signed agreements with the University of Hawai’i at Manoa (to share the Jean Charlot Collection) and with New York-based artist Andrew Spence.

VRF Winter Quarter hours

January 11, 2011

Welcome back students and faculty! The VRF is in business again — our Winter Quarter hours are 8:00 am to 4:00 pm Monday through Thursday and Friday by appointment. During the break, the VRF worked with Professor Diana Strazdes to add many new images for her Art History 188e course (“The American Home”) to our online catalog (take a look @ http://images.ucdavis.edu). The VRF also just received course reserve materials for Art History 1E and 190/290. We hope to see you soon in the VRF.
