Walters Museum Posts 600 Artworks Online For Use

BALTIMORE (AP) — The Walters Art Museum in Baltimore says it has digitized and catalogued more than 600 American paintings and other artworks, making them available for download and public use.

The new digital archive includes rarely seen works from John Singer Sargent, Mary Cassatt and John La Farge, among other artists. The museum said it used a $111,615 grant from the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services to pay for the project.

Curators say the museum’s spring exhibition also highlights works from its collection of American art. The show “American Artists Abroad” looks at how American artists reinvented themselves during their time abroad.

The exhibit is on view through June 22, and all of the works are available online.
