The collection contains photographs from numerous sources including commercial vendors and photographers, museum collections, auction houses, research institutions' archives, excavation campaigns, scholars' archives and collections, and photographic projects sponsored by the Getty Research Institute. One such project documents the major portion of the Attic black-figured olpai and oinochoai in the Hermitage Museum and includes limited coverage of other Attic figured vases in the Hermitage. These vases are represented in ca. 720 Cibachrome prints made from photographs taken by Andrew Clark.
Another Institute-sponsored campaign, begun in 1986 and carried out by Barbara Bini under the direction of Gloria Ferrari Pinney, documents the collection of Attic red-figured vases of the archaic period in the Museo archeologico nazionale di Tarquinia (ca. 450 photographs). The Amasis Painter Exhibition Photo Project (ca. 500 photographs) contributed original photographs of vases in the 1985-86 exhibition, The Amasis Painter and his world, as well as copy prints from various sources provided by Dietrich von Bothmer, of related vases used as comparanda in the exhibition catalog. (There are also 13 preparatory sketches for the catalog.).
Significant scholarly archives acquired by the repository and dispersed into this collection include those of Giovanni Becatti, Ludwig Goldscheider, and Kyle M. Phillips, as well as a study collection acquired from the Dept. of Classics at the University of California, Los Angeles. The collection contains copy prints from A.D. Trendall as well as from research institutions, among them the Beazley Archive at the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford University; and the American School of Classical Studies at Athens.
The most important commercial sources include Alinari (together with the Anderson and Brogi archives), Bildarchiv Foto Marburg, Bulloz, Christie's, Photographie Giraudon, Gabinetto fotografico nazionale (Rome), Hirmer Verlag, Réunion des musées nationaux, Sotheby's, Max Hutzel, Barbara Bini, and Emile Serafis.
