Census of Antique Works of Art and Architecture known to the Renaissance
The Census of Antique Works of Art and Architecture known to the Renaissance is available on a computerised database of some 25,000 images and 40,000 documents, with accompanying videodisks, and can also be consulted from the photographs in the subject files of the Collection. When established in 1947 by Phyllis Pray Bober, the project was intended to document the knowledge of classical works of art up to the time of the Sack of Rome (1527); in recent years, in collaboration with the Bibliotheca Hertziana in Rome and with the support of the Getty Art History Information Program, its scope has been expanded both chronologically (up to 1600) and to include architecture.
