From 1973-1983, the Royal Netherlandish Academy of Arts and Sciences in Amsterdam published in 17 volumes the series Iconclass System, the well-known iconographic classification system, now used by many art historians.
In order to give this Iconclass System a more specific practical continuation, Mr. Roelof van Straten, one of the founders of the sytem, has taken the initiative to start a series called Iconclass Indexes. In this Iconclass Indexes there will be indexed standard works on subjects which are more or less complete in itself. In preparation there are Max J. Friedlnder's Early Netherlandish Painting and F.W.H. Hollstein's Dutch & Flemish Engravings, Etchings and Woodcuts, 1400-1700.
Iconclass Indexes starts with the series ITALIAN PRINTS, which as described below, represents in four volumes a rather complete survey of the Italian graphical art.
