Jacopo De' Barbari's View of Venice (ca. 1500): A Digital Exhibition Catalog

Completion of a digital exhibition catalog on Jacopo De Barbari's View of Venice (c. 1500).

A Portrait of Venice is an online digital exhibition catalogue that features Jacopo De’ Barbari’s View of Venice, ca. 1500. Even though scholars across a range of disciplines consistently use the print as an historical document, no publication has considered the View as a visual narrative for engaging with the life of a city and its connections to the Early Modern world, and no catalogue publication has yet permitted readers/viewers to explore content thematically in a non-linear format that includes interactive entries as “works of art.” This digital publication includes not only video and imagery with scholarly essays written by art and architectural historians, but also interactive 3D models, mapping timelines, annotated digital books, image comparison tools, and augmented realities. The catalogue will enable users to navigate historical material according to unique interests and needs, resulting in many access points, countless different reading pathways, and exploratory learning.
