Academy of Art University Collections
Catena, the Digital Archive of Historic Gardens and Landscapes, is a collection of historic and contemporary images, including plans, engravings, and photographs, intended to support research and teaching in the fields of garden history and landscape studies. Created through the collaborative efforts of landscape historians and institutions, the initial offering of images is focused on the Villas as a Landscape Type. This project is sponsored by the Bard Graduate Center for Studies in the Decorative Arts, Design, and Culture and has been made possible by a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities, with additional support from the Gladys Krieble Delmas Foundation and the Samuel H Kress Foundation. The images in this collection are for educational use only. Any other use is unauthorized.
