Joconde. Portail des collections des musées de France

Joconde is a website giving access to the collections of over 350 museums in France. It is a catalogue with over 500.000 items, of very different types (archeology, fine arts, ethnology, history, science, and technology). Thematic collections are also available, as well as virtual exhibitions. In August 2015, a total of almost 500.000 items were present in the catalogue, of which over 341.000 were available as digital image. By selecting ‘avec image’ among the search terms, only digital objects are shown.

Basic and advanced search are available. It is also possible to browse by creator, function, place, subject, or source of the subject.

Images are shown in JPEG format, and can be downloaded. They are accompanied by extensive metadata.
