Problem

Bernard Berenson’s Drawings of the Florentine Painters is a digital resource based on Berenson’s publication of the same name. This research tool permits searches for any of the drawings listed in the three editions (1903, 1938 in English; 1961, in Italian). The already existing database is transformed to a semantic knowledge base with functionalities such as a) browsing and searching by artist and title (as provided by Berenson, in English or Italian), location and technique, b) visualization of key information from all three editions of Berenson’s text, as well as the current location, an image of the catalog page, and plates included in 1903 and from the British Museum, c) enriching information for entries like drawings by Sandro Botticelli and Filippino Lippi (and their schools).
