Study photographs of ancient minor arts objects, 1900s


PRELIMINARY INVENTORY OF THE STUDY PHOTOGRAPHS OF ANCIENT MINOR ARTS OBJECTS

Biographical/Historical Note

In 1974, the J. Paul Getty Museum began assembling a "photo library" by consolidating the visual resources of each existing curatorial department. By the early 1980s, the Photo Archive was actively acquiring large collections of photographs from commercial and private sources and scholars' archives that contained a photographic component. In 1983, the nearly one million photographs of the Photo Archive were incorporated into the Research Institute's Special Collections.
