This visualization project originated in a program entitled “Art Markets in Europe 1300-1800, Emergence, Development, Networks.” The latter focused mainly on the movement and dynamics of the art markets of the early modern age: Who were the agents of this mobility? What were its mechanisms? What idea do we have of the numbers of pictures circulating in Europe? Through what channels and networks were they distributed? These questions led the team to work out an experimental program of visualization aiming at endowing our research outcome with a visual and synthetic dimension that would help us renew our approaches and generate future research.
