2011-15: Consultant on the Richard Wilson Online tercentenary catalogue raisonné.
Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art, 16 Bedford Sq, London

Functionality, front-end design, data-management and auditing, troubleshooting and liaising with database provider.

Richard Wilson Online is the the most complete collection of Wilson paintings and drawings ever assembled. It also contains extensive information on collectors, patrons, exhibitions and publications. The project aims to update and assimilate the magisterial catalogue raisonnĂ© published by Professor W.G. Constable in 1953 and Sir Brinsley Ford’s The Drawings of Richard Wilson of 1951 (still the only book on the subject). In addition it is intended to add a commentary on the prints after Wilson’s works, which were a crucial instrument in their public reception.
