The Journal of Historians of Netherlandish Art announces the publication of an enhanced version of the Summer 2019 issue (v.11:2) (https://jhna.org/articles/rubens-invention-evolution-fall-of-phaeton/), now with the development of viewing tools that were generously funded by the Association of Research Institutes in Art History (ARIAH). The issue features E. Melanie Gifford’s “Rubens’s Invention and Evolution: Material Evidence in The Fall of Phaeton,” which reveals a newly discovered campaign of revision that augments our understanding of Rubens’s working process. The article is particularly innovative in employing various digital enhancements (developed in coordination with Jennifer Henel). This new version allows the user to view images in pre-set zooms, with both IIIF imagery and non-IIIF imagery. It also offers the ability to view annotations for these images in situ when an image opens in the multi-modal viewer window. Implementation of the hotspot function has, additionally, expanded content to include a timeline of the painting’s progression through the three stages: see the article “Exploration and Resources” https://jhna.org/articles/phaeton-exploration-and-resources/.
