Located in Room 420, the Art Reading Room incorporates two quiet study areas, non-circulating collections and the offices of the Center for the Art of East Asia.
The East Asian Art Collection contains over 4000 titles for the study of East Asian Art, including reference works, facsimile editions, and unusually formatted materials.
Located in Room 420E, the Archive consists of approximately 168,000 mounted, 8 x 10" photographs. It was named after Max Epstein (1875-1954), a business executive and philanthropist who in 1937 founded the collection by donating a large number of photographs acquired from the Art Library of Sir Robert Witt, a photographic archive now at the Courtauld Institute of Art in London. The Archive has since increased its holdings through purchases and additional gifts.
The Archive is locked and accessible by appointment only. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for access.
