Collections online

The collections of the Rubenianum are digitally grouped into three sections: the online catalogue providing access to the analogue collections, the Corpus Rubenianum Ludwig Burchard Online, and RKDimages. These online resources are constantly being updated and expanded and are indispensable to research in this field.

Online Catalogue

The online catalogue is the key to the Rubenianum’s analogue research collections. The search term ‘Library and documentation’ yields bibliographical references to books and articles, as well as references to documentation files and art-historical archives. Detailed sub-categories such as artists’ names, collections and themes provide additional search options under the search key ‘Subjects’. The search key ‘archives’ leads to detailed archival descriptions.


Corpus Rubenianum Ludwig Burchard Online

The Rubenianum provides a complete overview of all the volumes of the Corpus Rubenianum Ludwig Burchard, indicating which volumes have yet to be published and which have already been published. Some of the published volumes have been digitized and can be downloaded. The project 'Corpus Rubenianum Ludwig Burchard Online' (2013-2016) enriches the digitized volumes by adding links to descriptions of artworks and images in RKDimages.


Online documentation on works of art

The Rubenianum contributes to the database RKDimages of the Netherlands Institute for Art History (RKD). It contains descriptions of Flemish paintings, drawings, sculptures, prints and tapestries produced before 1800. These descriptions include information on provenance and bibliographical references and are illustrated with digital images from the analogue and digital Rubenianum collections.
