Photo Collections

The Institute possesses a rich photograph archive of more than 70,000 photos, that includes three major collections:

  • The photographs assembled by Hermann August Voss (1884-1969)
  • Caravaggism in Europe (including the photographs collected by Benedict Nicolson [1914-1978])
  • Dutch and Flemish art (including the photographs and reproductions assembled by the late Luigi Magnaguagno)

These collections facilitate research for the study of Western art from the late Middle Ages to the modern period. Between 2005 and 2007 they have been completely digitized.

NB Our database is temporarily unavailable. We are currently developing an improved version of the database. We apologise for the inconvenience.

The original photographs and master scans are available for research by visitors on-site, in the library of the Institute. For on-site consultation, it is necessary to make an appointment with our librarian (sman@nikiflorence.org).
