Charles S. Rhyne

Professor Emeritus, Art History, Reed College

Charles S. Rhyne is Professor Emeritus of Art History at Reed College, Portland, Oregon. He is an internationally recognized scholar on the English landscape painter John Constable and on the history, theory and practice of conservation. He has worked closely with museum curators and with conservators in museum conservation labs, has been a resident fellow at the National Gallery of Art and at the Yale Center for British Art, and he was Guest of the Directors of the J.Paul Getty Museum, Getty Conservation Institute, and Getty Research Institute. For five years he directed the exhibition program at the Reed College Art Gallery.

He has a long-term interest in visual images as evidence ("The Art Historians Need for Visual Documentation," in _Art History through the Camera's Lens_, 1995), recently extended to the field of computer imagery ("Computer Images for Research, Teaching, and Publication in Art History and Related Disciplines", _Visual Resources_, XII, 1996, 19-51; also published as a separate report by the Commission on Preservation and Access, 1996). In recent years he has tested the use of high quality digital images in the teaching of art history, under grants from the Culpeper and Mellon Foundations ("Student Evaluation of the Usefulness of Computer Images in Art History and Related Disciplines," _Visual Resources_, XIII, 1997, pp.67-81). Last year he began exploring the potential of the internet for making available the types of high quality images necessary for research in many disciplines ("Images as Evidence in Art History and Related Disciplines," _Museums and the Web_, 1997, pp.347-361), and recently posted a web site with over two hundred high quality images of the architecture of the Getty Center, Los Angeles www.reed.edu/gettyarchitecture or http://web.reed.edu/academic/departments/art/getty/
