Artstor works directly with women artists and their estates to present extensive documentation of artists’ oeuvre in the Digital Library. For example, Elizabeth Peyton has shared images of her paintings. The Georgia O’Keeffe Museum has provided approximately 1,200 works by Georgia O’Keeffe, including paintings, drawings, and sculpture dating from 1901–1984. Judy Chicago has contributed images of The Dinner Party (1974–1979), an iconic work of feminist art, as well as documentation of other collaborative projects from her entire career.
