Gothic Ivories Project

Some quick museum news for today, www.gothicivories.courtauld.ac.uk is now online.

The site makes available the first 700 objects from a database that already numbers more than 3,000 ivories.  A detailed entry has been written for each piece and the vast majority are illustrated by high resolution color images, with multiple views. The project was launched in 2008 by the Courtauld Institute and covers ivory sculptures made in Western Europe ca. 1200-ca. 1530.
