Welcome!

JSTOR is collaborating with the Frick Collection and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in a pilot project funded by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to understand how auction catalogs can be best preserved for the long-term and made most easily accessible for scholarly use. Auction catalogs are vital for provenance research as well as for the study of art markets and the history of collecting.

 

This prototype site is open to the public through 2011. If you are interested in this content and the importance to art research, we encourage you to try the site and take the brief survey linked below. We will evaluate use of the content and the feedback we have received in order to help determine the future of the resource.
