SAVE THE DATE: January 20, 2022, 1:30pm, The Center at the National Gallery of Art to Discuss Digital Humanities Project “The Accademia di San Luca, c. 1590-1635”

The History of the Accademia di San Luca, c. 1590–1635: Documents from the Archivio di Stato di Roma: A Digital Art History Project at the National Gallery of Art.

The History of the Accademia di San Luca, c. 1590–1635: Documents from the Archivio di Stato di Roma makes available archival documents and other research materials concerning one of the first artists’ academies in Europe. These resources document the breadth of the Accademia’s activities, drawing from the proceedings of meetings, financial and legal transactions, property rentals, and other records. New documents and research materials are added to the site periodically, all cross-referenced to people connected with the academy’s institutional and professional concerns and the places where they interacted.

First launched in 2010, the site was initially created using Extensible Markup Language (XML) within the parameters of the Text Encoding Initiative (TEI). Since 2014 the site is driven by the National Gallery of Art’s content management and site design platform to ensure its long-term sustainability and extensibility. High resolution images are managed through the Java Script Object Notation (JSON) file format, compatible with Application Programming Interface (API) viewing applications using the International Image Interoperability Framework (IIIF), specifically Mirador and IIPMooViewer. The site is built on Hyper Text Markup Language (HTML) with Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) and JavaScript Framework (jQuery).

Speakers: Dr. Peter Lukehart, Dr. Matthew Westerby, and Dr. Fulvia Zaninelli
