The Project

Start » The Project

The Census of Antique Works of Art and Archi­tec­ture Known in the Renais­sance is a project begun in 1946 devoted to the docu­men­ta­tion of and rese­arch on anti­qui­ties known in the Renais­sance era (1400–1600). Since 1995 it has been based at the Humboldt Univer­sity and its direc­tor­ship is tied to a Profes­sor­ship in the field of Early Modern Art at the Insti­tute für Kunst- und Bildgeschichte.

The Census project is supported by its inter­na­tional advi­sory body. The members of the Census Advi­sory Board are:

the Humboldt-Univer­sität zu Berlin,
the Warburg Insti­tute London,
the Biblio­theca Hertziana (Max-Planck-Institut für Kunst­ge­schichte) Rome,
the Kunst­ge­schicht­li­ches Seminar of the Univer­sität Hamburg,
and the Getty Rese­arch Insti­tute Los Angeles.
