The Photograph Archive, located within the Yale Center for British Art’s Reference Library, is a research resource.  The collection is comprised of 200,000 black-and-white photographs reproducing British works of art (paintings, sculpture, and drawings) from the 16th to the early 20th centuries from public and private collections around the world. Though not all of the photographs fall into this category, the Photograph Archive includes reproductions of works of art that are not well known and rarely, if ever, reproduced in printed publications.
