New additions to the ARTstor digital library:
Over 900 Quick Time Virtual Reality (QTVR) panoramas of world architecture from the Visual Media Center at Columbia University have been added to the ARTstor Digital Library. QTVR enables faculty and students to complement traditional side-by-side image comparisons with a mode of representation based on space and context. The panoramas range from antique sites such as the Pantheon and Domus Aurea in Rome, to important 20th century sites including Le Corbusier’s Church of Notre Dame du Haut and Rem Koolhaas’ Seattle Public Library.
ARTstor sponsored photography by Antonio Quattrone of Lorenzo Ghiberi and Filippo Brunelleschi’s competition panels can now be accessed through the ARTstor Digital Library. The competition panels are renowned relief sculptures depicting the Sacrifice of Isaac, created by Ghiberti and Brunelleschi in 1401-1402 in hopes of securing the commission to produce the set of Baptistery doors now known as the Gates of Paradise. Eighty-five color and black-and-white photographs offer a wide range of details and viewing angles.
