The Courtauld Institute of Art Uses Extensis Digital Asset Management Solutions for Efficient Collections Management of its Image Library

Extensis today announced that The Courtauld Institute of Art, one of the world’s leading centers for the study of art history and conservation, has selected Extensis’ Portfolio Server to manage its image library of more than 550 paintings, 9,500 prints and 35,000 photographs. The Courtauld Institute of Art is famous for its unrivalled collection of Impressionist and Post-Impressionist paintings, which includes Van Gogh’s Self-portrait with Bandaged Ear and A Bar at the Folies-Bergère by Edouard Manet. Highlights from the Renaissance collection include several works by Botticelli together with Lucas Cranach the Elder’s Adam and Eve.

The Courtauld Institute of Art turned to Portfolio Server because it offers:

  • A cost-effective platform to implement and maintain;
  • An open API to integrate seamlessly with Zetcom’s MuseumPlus Collection Management System;
  • A way for the Institute to bring its entire image collection online.
