Announcing 2017 Launch of the Graphikportal

Graphikportal, an art history database developed at the German Documentation Center for Art History – Bildarchiv Foto Marburg, now makes a large collection of works of art of European cultural heritage available online. The portal will be presented as part of the “Graphic Arts Weekend” (11-12 November), when numerous prints and drawings rooms open their collections to the public.

250,000 works of art are now available online, including works from major museums, libraries and research institutions, such as the Kupferstichkabinette of the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin – Prussian Cultural Heritage, the Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden or the Hamburger Kunsthalle. Also included are the Albertina and the MAK-Bibliothek and Kunstblättersammlung in Vienna, the prints collections of the ETH Zurich and the Zentralbibliothek Zürich or the Bibliotheca Hertziana – Max Planck Institute for Art History in Rome. Last but not least, the holdings of the Virtual Print Room, a cooperation of the Herzog Anton Ulrich Museum Braunschweig and the Herzog August Bibliothek Wolfenbüttel, will be integrated. All institutions are members of the international working group “Graphik vernetzt”, which aims to deliver common digitization standards and to design strategies for the further digital networking of graphic collections. This network offers concrete scientific added value, available through this platform for the first time and to this extent.
