About Artchive

Artchive is an Online Art Gallery and Art Encyclopedia.  Artchive was founded in 1998 by Mark Harden, and was one of the earliest art authorities on the web.  Beginning with physical scans of fine art, and CD-Rom collections of art images, Artchive now contains thousands of artworks, artist biographies, and art history articles and resources. 

Mark has since moved on from his time at Artchive, but the legacy and vision of his work carries on!

Our Team

The Artchive team consists of writers and editors with advanced Art History Degrees, and Professional Artists with years of experience creating fine art.
