Art Newspaper: “The Richard Diebenkorn Foundation has launched an encyclopaedic digital platform”
The free database aims to elevate public access to the artist’s work, with more than 8,000 images and writings
October 5, 2021
The Richard Diebenkorn Foundation has launched an encyclopaedic digital platform containing more than 8,000 items related to the late American painter and printmaker. The archive features high-resolution records of around 3,500 artworks and an extensive collection of scholarly articles, including From the Basement, an ongoing quarterly publication produced by the foundation.
“Previously, we did not have the capacity to physically open our archives for every request,” says Andrea Liguori, the managing director of the Berkeley-based foundation. “We wanted to stay relevant, accessible and make it easier for the next generation of artists, scholars, enthusiasts and the general public who are using smaller screens to digest visual and scholarly content.”
