Contemporary art and printer marks images from BEIC
Pablo Picasso portrayed in Milan by Paolo Monti in 1953. One of the many images of modern and contemporary artists from the Paolo Monti Archive of BEIC. In June 2016 the image was viewed 263.000 times in 47 different Wikimedia projects.
Since June the BEIC digital library team has worked on some new projects to enhance modern and contemporary art and printer marks. In particular "GLAM/BEIC/Artisti" aims at creating and promoting relevant contemporary artists' articles making the most of the 17.000 images of the Paolo Monti Archive, while "GLAM/BEIC/Ex libris e marche tipografiche" deals with bookplates and printer marks. These informations and images are rare on Wikipedia due to shortage and copyright limitations.
Eventually works are still being carried on the "Travels in Italy" collection which focuses on explorers of 17th and 18th century.
