For the current pilot release of CONA, we advise that browsing the CONA hierarchies will likely provide more gratifying results than searching, since the number of records included in CONA is as yet limited. The total will grow through contributions over time; data is added and updated every two weeks. However, if you wish, you may now also search by title/name or by ID. You may use AND and OR (in upper case). Wildcard is the asterisk (*); right truncation only. You may also search for keywords in the Note field. Please contact us at email@example.com if your institution wishes to contribute to CONA. As with the AAT, TGN, and ULAN, CONA and IA grow through contributions from the user community.
About CONA and IA
Learn about the purpose, scope, and structure of CONA and the IA. CONA compiles titles, attributions, depicted subjects, and other metadata about works of art, architecture, and cultural heritage, both extant and historical, physical and conceptual. Metadata is gathered and linked from museum collections, special collections, archives, libraries, scholarly research, and other sources. CONA is linked to the AAT, TGN, ULAN, and the IA (Iconography Authority). Through rich metadata and links, CONA may provide a powerful conduit for research and discovery for digital art history. The Getty Iconography Authority (IA) includes proper names and other information for named events, themes and narratives from religion/mythology, legendary and fictional characters, works of literature and performing arts, and legendary and fictional places.
