New Open Content at the GRI

Umbria--Perugia--Arrone--S. Maria, Image 1Last year we reported on the Open Content project at the Getty Research Institute.  In an exciting update the GRI just announced the addition of 77,000 new images.  The bulk of these are  from the Foto Arte Minore collection: photographs of art and architecture in Italy by Max Hutzel.  These photos, shot in the 1950s through the 1980s, include many buildings that have since been altered or destroyed, such as the much-changed facade of S. Maria in Arrone, Perugia, at right.  In addition, the project added nearly 5,000 images of 15th to 18th century tapestries, many of which are extremely difficult to otherwise view.   All photos are downloadable in high resolution and large size.
