Saskia, Ltd.

Saskia, Ltd. is the leading provider of high-quality images for the teaching of art history. Saskia was founded in 1966 by Ron Wiedenhoeft, then doctoral candidate in art and architectural history at Columbia University, and his wife Renate. By photographing each summer over a period of thirty-eight years and during sabbaticals, the archive has now grown to more than 34,000 images. The Saskia Library--with its many exquisite details--has been used successfully in introductory courses as well as specialized seminars of Art History since 1966 and has enhanced a broad range of art history pedagogy and many other disciplines.

Saskia images are available for licensing in perpetuity individually and now also on subscription basis on the vrcHost.com platform.
