ANN: The Montias Database of 17th-Century Dutch Art Inventories – Exploring 17th-Century Dutch Domestic Interiors Digitally (Frick Collection NY / online, 21 Mar 2023, 12:30 EDT)

Join the Frick Art Reference Library for lunchtime talks spotlighting how the data in The Montias Database of 17th-Century Dutch Art Inventories can be used digitally by art historians to glean new insights.

Weixuan Li will present a “spatial reading” methodology using the data to analyze the display of paintings in seventeenth-century Amsterdam homes, contrasting the use of interior spaces between painters and their clients. Leon van Wissen will showcase how the data from the Montias Database can be utilized in a digital environment. He will demonstrate a prototype of an online viewer that integrates the Montias data with information from other sources, including the Getty Provenance Index and original scanned records.

Weixuan Li: Post-Doctoral Researcher, Leiden University Centre for Arts in Society
