Digital Belvedere

The Belvedere Research Center’s expanded online database of the museum collection is launching the transition from a digitalized to a digital Belvedere. Many added functions provide new information pathways, providing valuable insights both for researchers and others.

The Belvedere’s digital collection includes information about objects and their current and past contexts. Faced with such a wealth of material, the focus will initially be on presenting a representative selection of masterpieces that is to be gradually expanded. Information will be continuously updated to keep pace with ever-changing developments in research. 


A single data set comprises various layers of information about an object, a person, or workshop and about one or occasionally several pictorial media. Additionally, many cross-references and trail markers intuitively guide you through the rich network of aspects.
