The Atelier Fine Arts Reference Library houses a collection of 6,000 scholarly, out-of-print, and rare fine art books and catalogs from the early Middle Ages to the mid-nineteenth century, from many continents and in many different languages. Catalogs cover historic exhibitions of all mediums - paintings, prints, engravings, sculpture, and conceptual art.
Constructed for the use of the public, the Fine Art Reference Library offers a space for students and visitors of The Atelier to study and coalesce. Complete with a coffee nook and work tables, this state-of-the-art library also provides smaller exhibition space for recent Atelier instructor and student works and commissions. Guests are invited to read in the library during Gallery Hours.
The Collection was donated to The Atelier by Andrew Washton of Washton Books in Port Chester, NY.
