Grant holder: Professor Francis Ames Lewis

Grant awarding institutions: £546K from the AHRC, Getty Institute and Kress Foundation

About the project: A comprehensive survey and database of pre-1900 European paintings held in all UK galleries and other institutions. This resulted in a major collaboration with the BBC and Public Catalogue Foundation to continue and extend the underdeveloped work in this area.
