Art Images for College Teaching
"The express purpose of this database, which offers 1,100 images personally photographed on location by the site's creator, is to freely disseminate images of important art and architecture. The collection is organized into five categories: Ancient, Medieval, Renaissance & Baroque, 18th - 20th Century, and Non-Western, but lacks a search for specific images. Each photograph is concisely described and accompanied by cross references to discussions in one or more of 20 widely used art history survey textbooks. Emphasizing that the site is a "Free Use Educational Resource," Kohl encourages any use that is both educational and non-commercial, which will help college, community college, and high school AP faculty without the resources to license expensive collections.
