This is the London presentation of the CASVA digital humanities project, The History of the Accademia di San Luca, c. 1590-1635: Documents from the Archivio di Stato di Roma, which is an open-access research database that provides the first comprehensive documentary history of the founding years of the Accademia di San Luca. Free text and guided searches by means of drop-down menus yield results with complete transcriptions of many new and previously unpublished documentary materials, accompanied by a digital image of the original document as well as a summary in either English or Italian. The site also features artist bibliographies and a growing database of images associated with the early history of the Accademia di San Luca and with its members during the 16th and 17th centuries.

Organised in collaboration with the London Seminar for Early Modern Visual Culture and CASVA (Center for Advanced Study in the Visual Arts, National Gallery of Art, Washington)
