Posted on Mon, 10/29/2012 - 11:50

By June 2013, the DCA project, drawing upon the know-how of 4 experienced technical partners, will make available online central parts of the collections of 21 European art institutions: paintings, sculptures, photographs, installations, video, drawings, prints, collages, and book art created after 1945.Improved access to these masterpieces will benefit both the general public and the professional art community. Around 27,000 artworks and 2,000 contextual documents are being digitised to create high quality digital reproductions, using the the best practices in digitisation, metadata implementation and long-term preservation. DCA is co-funded by the CIP-ICT Policy Support Programme of the European Union.
