Digital Art History: a brave report and a new project

1°About main findings, a few extracts and some important recommendations of

'Transitioning to a Digital World - Art History, Its Research Centers, and Digital Scholarship'

report published on June 1, 2012 by The Kress Foundation.

2°About a new 'digital' international and multidisciplinary art history project entitled 

ARTL@S 'Web Atlas of Western Art of the 19th and 20th century'

launched in Paris on June 7, 2012, an example 'just-in-time' for a follow-up of the Kress report.

Will the project respond to the many issues raised by the report?
