Paper Abstract

The European Commission-funded MARC project ended in April 1996, with the publication of Flemish Baroque Painting, Masterpieces of the Alte Pinakothek, Muenchen (Hirmer 1996). To the best of our knowledge, this is the world's first all- digital colorimetric art catalogue. This paper will briefly introduce the MARC camera and the MARC printing technology, and then present a critical evaluation of the final book. The application of MARC results since the end of the project will be covered, and related EC imaging projects surveyed.
