Connoisseurship - the future's online
April 30 2012
Exciting news from Poussin scholar Dr David Packwood over on Art History Today:
I also plan to create another blog for a Poussin connoisseurship project that looks at problematic pictures in the Public Catalogue Foundation database and other on-line resources. It looks like on-line connoisseurship is coming into its own. Frank DeStefano has just started a series looking at the cataloguing of Giorgione by two noted scholars, Pignatti and Pedrocco; and Bendor Grosvenor is successfully using crowdsourcing to identify individuals in portraits on the PCF/BBC Your Paintings site.
And just wait till I unleash my Van Dyck Project website on the world...
