CLAROS (CLassical Art Research Online Services) brings together the collections of universities and museums to┬áprovide a database of scholarly research on classical antiquity. You’ll find ceramics (both western and eastern), sculpture, bronze, eastern painting (western will be available soon!), and architectural photographs. You can further limit by location and time period.

Each image links you to the university collection or museum that owns the item. You’ll find material and technical details for the artwork, plus gateways to similar items in the collection. Another way to limit your search is by using a subpage of CLAROS called CLAROS Data. Here you can search from a list of object type or personality.
