I wish to thank all who have supported my research activities.

My Ph.D. in digital, early-modern iconology was co-sponsored by Systems Engineering and the Faculty of Design and Media, Southampton Institute. My subsequent research has been funded through various European Union grants, the UK Arts and Humanities Research Board (now Council), the Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC) and the Leverhulme Trust. I am grateful for the support from the Fondazione Giorgio Cini in Venice, and for numerous invitations to participate in expert institutes and specialist academic events, among others from the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute in Williamstown, Massachusetts, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, the Getty Research Institute in California, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Duke University Libraries; the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation; the Samuel H. Kress Foundation; the University of Maryland, College Park; the European Foundation for Science and Technology (COST), the Leibniz Research Alliance “Historical Authenticity”, and Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich, Germany.
