Before the invention of the camera, people used watercolours to document the world. Every one of these paintings has a story to tell, but many are hidden away in archives, too fragile to display. Watercolour World exists to bring them back into view.
Join us as we take a look each week into the extensive Sinai collection housed right here at the University of Michigan, Visual Resources Collection
The VRC maintains nearly 500,000 images of art. The collection’s roots are more than 90 years old and developed as a teaching collection to support faculty and students. As the University of Michigan’s History of Art evolved and became a center for scholarship, so did the VRC collection become an international resource.
We strive to support our students and faculty on the frontlines of learning and research; to steward our planet, our community, our campus. To do this, the History of Art Visual Resources Collection needs you—because the world needs Victors.
