The Frick Art Reference Library Photoarchive recently received a $25,000 grant from the Kress Foundation to support the creation of a toolkit that will perform computer vision analysis on digitized art historical photo archives. This toolkit will be a groundbreaking application of technology that will transform the way photo archives are used.

The cooperation between The Frick Collection in New York and the Mauritshuis in the Hague to produce the marvelous exhibition of paintings on view in the fall of 2013 in the Frick's galleries is not the first time art historical institutions in the two cities have collaborated.
