H.W. Wilson Adds Images to Art Museum Database

H.W. Wilson ( has announced the addition of some 62,000 images to its Art Museum Image Gallery database, an art image reference source on the WilsonWeb database service. Drawn from more than 1,800 sources worldwide, the new images include material from many of the most respected museums of Europe, Africa, South America, and Asia: Musée du Louvre, Paris; Museum der Stadt, Vienna; Bibliothèque des Arts Décoratifs, Paris; Musée du Château de Versailles; Museo del Prado, Madrid; National Anthropological Museum, Mexico; British Museum; Archaeological Museum, Istanbul; Archaeological Museum, Lima; Hermitage Museum, Saint Petersburg; Bardo Museum, Tunis; and others. Full bibliographic records accompany every image, and all images are rights-cleared for educational use.

Acquired through an arrangement with The Art Archive of the Picture Desk, Inc. (an art, civilization, and history image library), the new images build on the Art Museum Image Gallery's coverage of ancient civilizations, American and European history, Medieval history, world religions, and icons from the history of art and architecture. The new content brings the total number of images on the Art Museum Image Gallery to more than 155,000, spanning works from 3000 B.C. to the 20th century.

The Art Museum Image Gallery is designed to offer support for curricula in art history, studio art, and design, as well as cultural studies, area studies, archaeology, classics, history, religion, literature, and related subject areas. Teachers can use high-resolution images in class lectures, assignments, academic presentations, and password-protected course Web sites. Students can use Art Museum Image Gallery works in papers and classroom assignments. Museums can provide patron access to the Art Museum Image Gallery from computer kiosks, and images can be used for public lectures or scholarly presentations.
