    Chris Strasbaugh, Director of Visual Resources, History of Art, Vanderbilt University (now at Ohio State University)



    Archivision is pleased to present our SECOND annual art module: Adjunct Module B: ITALIAN ART. The new art only modules are being created in addition to our regular annual architecture modules of 6,000 images each. Each art module will have 3,000 professional quality digital images and be published in the winter, at the start of the new year. The regular architecture modules of 6,000 images will still be published late spring, as they have for over 10 years.

    Each art module holds 3,000 high resolution, quality digital photographs covering a wide range of art in Italy, from Ancient Roman—frescoes, mosaics and sculpture—to Medieval and Baroque masterworks in paintings and sculpture. Where possible extensive details were taken, which are not available from other sources. This collection is pulled from a combined collection of over 50,000 photographs taken in situ during the summer of 2015 and 2016 with many more art works following in Adjunct Module C: Italian Art (another 3,000 photos) to be published winter 2018.
