The Indianapolis Museum of Art’s long collecting history is reflected in its distinguished holdings of early European paintings (pre-1800). A full scholarly treatment of the collection has never been undertaken and more than forty years have passed since the publication of a summary collection catalogue in 1970.IMA Lab developed an online catalogue management tool that promises to revolutionize the ways in which scholarly content on collections is produced, managed, published, and utilized by readers. The IMA will use this framework for this catalogue and future IMA online publications. Unlike printed collection catalogues, which can become outdated with advances in scholarship, online catalogues can be updated and revised as new information comes to light and new interpretations are proposed. This project is supported by grants from The Getty Foundation, The Clowes Fund, and the Samuel H. Kress Foundation.
