National Art History Institute (AGORHA)

Global and organised access to art history resources

AGORHA provides online access to historical and research repositories in the realm of art history and archaeology, produced by the Institut national de l’histoire de l’art or National Institute of Art History(INHA) and its partners. A collective endeavour, AGORHA is continually enriched with new records and repositories to reflect both the diversity and the interdisciplinary nature of the INHA’s specialisms.

Researchers have requested that this tool be redesigned in order to offer new features and start over with innovative subjects.
