The Hartill Archive of Architecture and Allied Arts has contributed nearly 16,000 images of architecture to the Artstor Digital Library. The selection is global and it reaches from Antiquity to the present. 

The Archive documents architectural history from its beginning to current times, and from Europe and the Middle East to the Americas. It  includes thousands of details of architectural decoration, mosaics, sculpture and stained glass, as well as related arts and public sculpture. It is exceptionally strong in European Medieval architecture and sculpture of the Romanesque and Gothic periods. Additionally, Modern architecture and sculpture are both well-represented. 

Hartill Art Associates was founded by Alec and Marlene Hartill and has been operating since 1977, providing educators, researchers, and media professionals with high quality color photography. The Hartill Archive of Architecture and Allied Arts in Artstor embodies virtually the entire Hartill Art Associates archive through the year 2001, as well as some more recent selections from photography campaigns in 2002 and 2003. All images were scanned from the firm's original color slide photography.
