Research & Publications

In line with our goal of researching the permanent collection and introducing it to a broad and diverse public, the museum maintains an active publications programme. Its monographs and exhibition and collection catalogues provide in-depth studies of various aspects of our holdings.

These beautifully produced volumes are frequently complemented by digital explorations into related areas. Written by in-house curators and external experts, these print and digital publications represent the culmination of years of scholarly investigation.
