All-access art


The Smithsonian Institution’s Freer Gallery of Art and Arthur M. Sackler Gallery, which are dedicated to Asian art, released their entire collections online on Jan. 1. More than 40,000 images from the galleries - many of them never seen by the public - are now available online, in high resolution and without copyright restrictions for non-commercial use. Included are some Buddhist paintings from Korea’s Goryeo Dynasty (918-1392). There are around 160 Buddhist paintings from the Goryeo Dynasty still remaining around the world. From left: “Buddha Amitabha (Amita) and the Eight Great Bodhisattvas” from mid-to-late 14th century; “Water-Moon Avalokitesvara (Suwol Gwaneum bosal)” from the mid-14th century; Bodhisattva Kshitigarbha (Jijang bosal) from the late 13th or early 14th century.
