Art Finder

Friday, February 19th, 2010

The Minneapolis Institute of Arts and the Walker Art Center have collaborated on a website, called Art Finder, which allows access to images of thousands of items in their collections. You can search and/or use drop-down lists to narrow results. AnĀ Art Finder Video Tour is also available. In order to get access to PowerPoint-sized images, you must click on a thumbnail image then click on the link at the right that says “Printable Image”. This will open a larger image in a new window. Right-click (Windows) or ctrl-click (Mac) to save the image to a location of your choosing. Note that approximately 4,500 image from the Minneapolis Institute of Arts are in ARTstor, but Art Finder contains more than 20,000 images.

Hermitage Museum Website & Digital Collections

Friday, June 26th, 2009

Today’s The Scout Report had an entry about the Hermitage Museum’s website. Of particular interest to Simulacrum readers will be the Digital Collections that are now available online. It is possible to browse or search the collections. When pulling up the record for an individual work, the image link sometimes breaks, but clicking on the link at the right for the larger images appears to work every time. The larger images are big enough for PowerPoint use. They will also work for loading into your soaMDID personal collection, but they are not big enough for zooming.
