New Images:Artstor includes Archivision 4 (Russia, Elgin Marbles, Mexico...)
Module Four features Russia as a highlight (over 2000 images photographed in summer 2005 including the major palaces and gardens around St Petersburg and coverage in Moscow.) The module also holds more material from Paris, including several important hôtels, and London--extensive coverage of Chiswick House and grounds, plus many of Wren's churches. For Classics we offer all of our ancient Roman drawings scanned directly from original 19th century volumes (348 plans, sections and elevations) and coverage of the Elgin marbles. Art from the Victoria and Albert Museum, including their amazing cast collection, provides survey support. Our collection from Mexico is also included (Mexico City, Cuernavaca, Puebla and Taxco.) For contemporary, there is new architecture in the UK and in LA, including Gehry's Disney Concert Hall and works by Norman Foster and Enric Miralles. Two important works by Mackintosh, the Glasgow School of Art and the House for an Art Lover, round out this module
