Earlier this year we were honoured to work with the Netherlands Institute for Art History (RKD) to develop a prototype site for them to allow online access to some of their magnificent artwork collection. Located in The Hague, the RKD is home to the largest art history center in the world, specializing in documentation, archives, and books on Western art from the late Middle Ages until the modern era. Much of their content has been digitized and is available on the RKD website, with their main aim being to collect, categorize, and make art research available, most notably in the field of Dutch Masters.
The prototype site developed by Armadillo uses iNQUIRE, our digital discovery framework, to deliver a fast and fluid search and discovery experience. The site makes use of extensive facet and tag based searching in both Dutch and English. Naturally the site also leverages the IIIF Image API.
