Primary Sources in Danish Art History

In addition to the artworks they created, many artists also left behind letters, journals and other texts that offer a fascinating look into their working process and reflections. To secure some of these sources for posterity, the New Carlsberg Foundation launched a digitization project titled Primary Sources in Danish Art History, PSiDAH, in autumn 2015.

The collection is searchable. You can search across all the projects or specify an individual project. The joint search function also includes The Carl Jacobsen Letter Archive.

For now, most sources are available only in their original language, which is predominantly Danish.
