Images of the French Revolution
Now online: the French Revolution Digital Archive, a partnership between Stanford University and the Bibliothèque nationale de France, with some 14,000 high-resolution images.
The Images are composed of high-resolution digital images of approximately 12,000 individual visual items, primarily prints, but also illustrations, medals, coins, and other objects, which display aspects of the Revolution. These materials were selected from across the BnF’s departments, and include thousands of images for the important collections entitled Hennin and De Vinck. Detailed metadata exists for the images, so that researchers can search by artist, subject, genre, and place.
