I am gradually building up a collection of images to support my teaching, speaking and writing, starting with images relating to The Look of the Past.
Each project will contribute a separate category to the Gallery:within each there may be several sub-categories (each devoted for example to a different chapter of a book, or part of a course).
Tips for using the Gallery
1. If the Galery displays oddly in recent versions of Internet Explorer, try clicking on the Compatibility icon on the top row, next to the address window.
2. In the Search window, "Search for words" searches for terms appearing in the captions, and the search by tags will bring together everything in the Courtauld Gallery, for example, or everything by Bernini .
3. You may download images from this collection on Creative Commons Terms
To download an image, right click on it, then Save as …
The Look of the Past was published by CUP in September 2012. It discusses the ways in which historians can understand and make use of visual material. While the book is well illustrated, I aim to provide in the Gallery a range of visual material that could not be included in the book.
Each chapter of the book will be represented in a separate sub-category of the main category The Look of the Past.
Heroism. I shall include here visual material in support of my course on Heroism.
