Sandrart.net: A net-based research platform on the history of art and culture in the 17th century. The project’s main goal was an annotated, enriched and web-based edition of Joachim von Sandrart’s Teutscher Academie der Edlen Bau, Bild- und Mahlerey-Künste (1675–80), one of the most important source texts of the early modern period. Having lived and worked in a number of places throughout Europe, Sandrart’s biographical background makes his writings (with first-hand narrations on art, artists and art collections) a work of European dimension.
In addition, the following cooperations existed: Université de Montpellier, France: French translations of selected parts of the text, contributed by Prof. Dr. Michèle-Caroline Heck and Anaïs Carvalho.
Bibliotheca Hertziana, Max-Planck-Institut für Kunstgeschichte, Rome, Italy: French translations of selected parts of the text, contributed by Dr. Cecilia Mazzetti di Pietralata.
