Digital Archives

The Centre is active in researching and developing methods of data presentation and retrieval that caters to the needs of fine art related issues. To date a number of comprehensive databases have been constructed. These include: the CFPR Collotype Database, featuring over 900 entries dealing with many historical, technical and aesthetic aspects of the process; the Woodburytype Database, which documents the process in a similar manner; and the Royal Society of Painter Printmakers, which archives their print collection dating from its inception in 1885 to the present.
