Friedländer 3.0

Last Thursday at the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, on the occasion of the 150th birthday of Max J. Friedländer, the Royal Institute for Cultural Heritage (KIK-IRPA, Brussels) presented the Friedländer 3.0 database, developed by the Centre for the Study of the Flemish Primitives. This project is the first to offer online all fourteen volumes of Friedländer's English edition of Early Netherlandish Painting (1967-1976), downloadable and searchable by OCR. It also offers an online database in which all records of paintings in this edition are included, updated and extended with the records of the Centre for the Study of the Flemish Primitives. With this web tool, the Royal Institute for Cultural Heritage makes the unique documentation of its specialized study centre accessible and invites the scholarly community to contribute to keeping the information up to date.
