The Guggenheim has been digitizing their vast collection of art books for many years and they have just posted over 200 of them for free. The collection includes books by legendary artists like Wassily Kandinsky, analyses of artistic movements like Futurism and German Expressionism, and monographs on everyone from Jenny Holzer to Picasso.
The initiative to publish certain entries from The Guggenheim’s vast library began with 65 catalogs published in 2012, and has now grown to 205 titles. This joins 43 titles available in the Los Angeles County Museum of Art’s Online Reading Room, 281 from Getty Publications’ Virtual Library, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art MetPublications’s whopping 1,611 books you can download for free. That’s in addition to the 375,000+ high resolution images of the artworks themselves the Met dumped into the public domain earlier this year.”
