ICMS Kalamazoo 2022 Presentation
By addressing advanced undergraduate, and graduate students, this project has a pedagogical approach and strategy integrating a visual section, and a mapping section as well. We will collect information on medieval artists and schools, and also current cultural heritage institutions where artworks are located. Next, we will build geospatial datasets and integrate provenance notes for collection artifacts, in light of the Getty Provenance Index Database (https://github.com/chnm/doingdh) to trace artists’ work, training, and schools, and visualize such information through contemporary and historical maps from the David Rumsey Map Collection (https://www.davidrumsey.com). Outcomes include a digital collection and exhibition, with International Image Interoperability Framework (IIIF) digital images allowing for deep zoom, comparison, and annotation of images. Artworks made in Italy, and showcased worldwide, offer ideal frames for geospatial investigations of art in Padua, the Veneto region and Italy, and world-class museum collections today.
