Online Catalogue: Roman Art at the Art Institute of Chicago

Roman Art at the Art Institute of Chicago is a scholarly digital catalogue featuring art historical essays and conservation reports on artworks from the ancient Roman world in the Art Institute’s collection. Many of the objects are published here for the first time. The entries include new high-resolution photography, stunning 360-degree views of the works, and in-depth technical imaging and analysis. The volume is free to the public. The project received generous funding from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. The catalogue was built using the OSCI Toolkit, an open-source digital authoring and publishing platform. Find the Art Institute's toolkit customizations and additions on github under the OSCI-Toolkit, OSCI-Toolkit-Frontend, and ChicagoCodeX repositories.
