…research is also about sharing!
I count myself privileged with many good ideas and comments from others!
Here is what an art hsitorian and specialist in database wrote to me :
“I think even for me as a trained art historian I was amazed about the implications of the canvas. I had never thought about it before and I think most have not yet. So to create a platform for your information would be a starting point to focus the research of others onto this aspect of the artwork. By bringing different data over time periods and artists will give future researchers the possibility to ask profound question about the why and how. And if we could have a wide variety of data we could start using data mining techniques to find hidden relationships between the artworks and the craftsmanship over time periods and space.”
work in progress!
