End of project presentation: issues and achievments

As part of the LexArt project, which will end on March 31,2018, the team of researchers and the project instigator, Michèle-Caroline Heck, will present the results and achievements of the project at a conference to be held on March 21, 2018 at the INHA (Paris, Galerie Colbert, auditorium – 6 pm).


In addition to the scientific publications of the project that will be presented, a large part of this event will be devoted to the Database developed by the Center for Digital Humanities of the Trier University (Germany). This digital tool is specifically dedicated to the artistic vocabulary of the North of the Alps (French, English, German, Dutch and Latin) and to its elaboration between 1600 and 1750.


Indeed, the Lexart project’s objective is to offer to the academic community a new, reflective and documentary resource designed in three parts:

– A theoretical volume that addresses methodological, thematic and/or transversal issues
– A dictionary of terms and notions regarding painting in Early Modern Times
– A database that gathers all the quotations and definitions of 1200 terms in each language
This presentation will make it possible to re-evaluate the challenges specific to Digital Humanities and their contribution to Art History and Social Sciences.
