About the Iconclass 2100 Browser

The new browser was made for RKD by Etienne Posthumus with help from Hans Brandhorst. Suggestions and comments were gratefully received from a test panel that included staff members of the RKD, the Amsterdam Rijksmuseum, the German Bildindex and the Istituto Centrale per il Catalogo e la Documentazione, the Getty Foundation and the Herzog August Bibliothek in Wolfenb├╝ttel, and various individual researchers.

This website was made using Python, Django and SOLR. It is best viewed with Mozilla Firefox 2 or 3, or with Microsoft Internet Explorer 7 or higher. We advise a screen resolution of at least 1024x768, certainly if you choose to see sample pictures. For those you should also have Adobe's Flash player installed, preferably the most recent one.

Please send comments, questions and suggestions to: iconclass@rkd.nl
