The Getty Research Institute has added over 72,000 images to its Open Content Program from the photo archive created by German-born photographer and scholar Max Hutzel (1911-1988). Starting in the early ‘60s, Hutzel photographed Italian monuments and collections until the end of his life. He called his project Foto Arte Minore (photos of minor art) because he documented lesser known monuments, collections, and churches, including Etruscan, Roman, early Medieval, Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque art and architecture. The Hutzel and other photographs are free to download and use for any purpose.
