National Institute Of Art History Opens In France
The Curmudgeony Librarian writes "A central library for the study of art history opened this week in Paris.
The Institut national de l'histoire de l'art (INHA)The Institute has been planned for almost a century.
The core of the collection came from designer Jacques Doucet who opened a library in 1908 with 150,000 books and manuscripts and 280,000 photographs from his own personal collection. In 2001 Alain Schnapp established the INHA and convinced other French national museums to donate their own libraries, to the collection."
