As part of an effort to shape the future of scholarly publishing, the Getty Foundation in 2009 invited the Art Institute of Chicago and eight other museums to participate in a venture called the Online Scholarly Catalogue Initiative.
The project aimed to create new platforms for digital publications that would provide in-depth curatorial research and conservation science alongside richly illustrated content in a format that readers would find engaging, manageable, and unobtrusive. The Art Institute is pleased to present its first catalogue, devoted to the museum’s holdings of paintings and drawings of Claude Monet. A preview of an upcoming volume on Pierre-Auguste Renoir, which will be published at the beginning of August 2014, is also available.
