Digital Art History

The Digital Art History Lab of the Frick Art Reference Library aims to provide researchers with the tools and data necessary to explore new methodologies in the field of digital art history, a subset of digital humanities with a particular interest in visual imagery.

Digital art history seeks to answer art historical questions using computational methods and digital applications. Its interdisciplinary approach stimulates collaboration between art historians and specialists from disparate disciplines within the humanities and sciences.
