About the Photographic Collection

The Warburg Institute's Photographic Collection contains around 400,000 analogue photographs of sculptures, paintings, drawings, prints, tapestries, and other forms of imagery. Begun by Aby Warburg in the late 1880s, the collection is ordered by subject according to a unique iconographic classification system first designed by Rudolph Wittkower and Edgar Wind during the 1930s.
