Dutch Paintings in a New Age: The Debut of NGA Online Editions
Arthur K. Wheelock Jr., curator of northern baroque paintings, National Gallery of Art. The National Gallery of Art houses one of the most celebrated collections of Dutch paintings in the world. Over the past several years, the Gallery has been updating its out-of-print catalogue of 17th-century Dutch paintings in preparation for publishing it anew online. In this lecture recorded on March 23, 2014, at the National Gallery of Art, this, the inaugural publication in the Gallery’s Online Editions series, is discussed and demonstrated by the Gallery’s curator of northern baroque paintings, and the curatorial, technical, and publishing team behind this innovative program initially funded by the Getty Foundation.
