Edgar Wind was the University of Oxford's first Professor of History of Art from 1955-1967. Wind gained a reputation for his inspiring lectures which were hugely popular. A key part of these talks were the glass lantern slides and 35mm slides that Wind had made for his lectures. This large collection has stayed with the Department of History of Art and is now housed in the Visual Resources Centre.
Other material relating to Edgar Wind can be found at the Sackler Library and Bodleian Libraries.
The Visual Resources Centre is open
Monday - Thursday 9am - 5pm
Friday 9am - 4pm
If you would like to view the collections or have a question related to the resources please email the Visual Resources Assistant Francesca Issatt at firstname.lastname@example.org
