Frick Collection (New York, NY 10021-4981)
Anastasia Levadas (Project Director: July 2019 to present)
Completion of Frick Art Reference Library Photoarchive Digitization

Digitization of 73,894 photographs of American and European sculpture and American gallery inventories from the twentieth century. The project would complete online access to the Frick’s 1.2 million reference images.

The Frick Collection proposes a two-year implementation project to digitize and make available 73,894 photographic images of artwork and corresponding documentation. This project targets outliers from the collection that require special format treatment (nitrate negatives, transparencies) or the securing of copyright permissions (gallery photographs, three-dimensional works) and will complete the digital reformatting of the more than 1.2 million images that comprise the Frick’s Photoarchive collection. The Frick is requesting a $350,000 Humanities Collections and Reference Resources grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities in order to help succeed with fundraising for this project. The Frick’s focus on creating rich, shareable metadata will help ensure the wide dissemination of this new resource to a global audience. The digitized materials will be made freely available to peer institutions and to the public through the Frick Art Reference Library’s online catalog.
