Robert Winter’s archives of the architecture of California

October 11, 2009 – 4:10 pm

Given our interest in architecture in relation to art, TFM found this of interest on a blog we hadn’t seen before. Be sure to check out ArtStor.org when you have the chance.

ARTstor is partnering with Occidental College to share approximately 2,500 images of California architecture from the archives of Robert Winter in the Digital Library. A noted architectural historian, Winter photographed buildings and sites throughout California for over 40 years. His photographs document major 19th and 20th century styles from Beaux-Arts to Art Deco, Spanish Colonial to Mission Revival, with a particular focus on the Arts and Crafts movement. In 1965, Winter co-authored the original Guide to Architecture in Southern California with David Gebhard. Revised and expanded in several editions up to the current 2003 version, it is still the standard source for the study of the architecture and built environment in the greater Los Angeles area.
