The Tuck Langland Collection

The Tuck Langland CollectionThis database contains approximately 1,800 images taken over the last 40 years by Tuck Langland, Professor Emeritus at Indiana University South Bend. The Langland image collection focuses exclusively on Romanesque and Gothic buildings in France and England.

In addition to teaching at IUSB from 1971 to 2003, Langland has been a professional sculptor for more than forty years. He is currently President of the National Sculpture Society and member of the National Academy of Art. Langland is the author of two books on sculpture: Practical Sculpture (Englewood Cliffs, N.J.: Prentice Hall, 1988), and From Clay to Bronze: A Studio Guide to Figurative Sculpture (New York: Watson-Guptill Publication, 1999).


This database comprises almost 1,800 images of Romanesque and Gothic architecture and architectural sculpture from France and England. Represented are 184 French buildings and 42 English buildings. The collection includes both secular and sacred monuments, but the emphasis is on the latter.
