    Renaissance Polychrome Sculpture in Tuscany Database
    (qspace.library.queensu.ca/handle/1974/14832) is an online open-access database of photographs of and information about over 350 objects, produced by Una D’Elia, Heather Merla, and Rachel Boyd. High-resolution photographs are freely available for research, teaching, and publication. Clicking on “show full item record” reveals further information and bibliography. The database also includes an integrated map, color-coded by material (by Claire Litt). For an example of how this resource can be used in teaching, see Reconstructing the Social Lives of Italian Renaissance Sculptures (reconstructingrenaissance.home.blog), a virtual exhibition created by Queen’s University undergraduate students, which includes digital visual reconstructions.
