Since 2019 cataloguing has been in progress on the most important core of Everett Fahy’s photo archive .It comprises over 13,000 photographs relating to 15th-century Florentine painting
As of October 2020 the first  4,500 images will be available on the Foundation online database, a sample of the American scholar’s extraordinary research efforts in this field. 

The works now consultable contain, notably, over 800 photos relating to works by Beato AngelicoLorenzo MonacoFilippo LippiPaolo Uccello and  Piero di Cosimo, as well as over 1000 images connecting to the wealth of documentation on Ghirlandaio’s followers, such as the Maestro di Apollo e Dafne, the Maestro dell’Epifania di Fiesole, the Maestro di Marradi, the Maestro del tondo Borghese, the Maestro del tondo Holden, the Maestro della Natività Johnson (Domenico di Zanobi), the Maestro della Madonna Naumburg, the Maestro di S. Lucia sul Prato, the Maestro dei cassoniCampana, the Maestro del tondo Lathrop (Michelangelo di Pietro Membrini) and Bastiano Mainardi. These figured in Everett Fahy’s doctoral thesis presented in 1968and later going to form his book Some Followers of Domenico Ghirlandaio published in 1976. 

Fahy’s numerous handwritten jottings on the back of photos, giving bibliographical references and details of the collectors whose hands works passed through, added to the abundant hard-copy documentation attached to the photos, have enabled the fact-sheets on 15th-century Florentine painting already in the database to be updated. The database is now the richer by 2000 photographs of works that the Federico Zeri Photo Archive did not possess.

Scientific cataloguing of the Fahy Photo Archive was greatly enhanced by the close correspondence with antiquarians, collectors and art historians preserved in the folders, and the famous lists of individual artists compiled by Fahy. Where these exist, they have been included in the fact-sheets on catalogued works.

This wealth of materials has enabled Fahy’s critical thinking to be reconstructed, as well as helping to decipher the ordering system and complex cross-references underpinning the sheaves and envelopes in his archive.
