The long and meticulous work of a catalogue raisonné is significantly facilitated by the online platform.

Each work of art has a designated Full Entry page, complete with a Preview area to visualize how the page will look when made available for viewing. Information on each work is organized in six categories : Description, Provenance, Exhibition History, Published References, Location-Inventory, and Research – each featuring multiple sub-categories.

In parallel, six general indexes: Catalogue, Archives, Owners-Contacts, Exhibitions, Literature and Research, provide an overall view of information per category and allow for easy cross-referencing of data to specific works of art.
