IT and Culture: The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Research Center launches the digital archives initiative

15 May 2019

The Metropolitan Museum of Art's Leonard A. Lauder Research Center for Modern Art (the USA) has launched the Digital Archives Initiative, a new project developed through partnerships with institutions and artists' estates worldwide. Through the Digital Archives Initiative (DAI), rare documents and materials related to modern art that are largely unknown or inaccessible are made available online. 

The first DAI collection, made possible through a partnership with the Institute of Art History, Czech Academy of Sciences in Prague, features Vincenc Kramář's unpublished notes on one of Pablo Picasso's first solo exhibitions outside France — at Heinrich Thannhauser's Moderne Galerie in Munich in 1913.
