Union List Of Artist Names
The Union List of Artist Names (ULAN) is an online database using a controlled vocabulary currently containing around 293,000 names and other information about artists. Names in ULAN may include given names, pseudonyms, variant spellings, names in multiple languages, and names that have changed over time (e.g., married names). Among these names, one is flagged as the preferred name. Although it is displayed as a list, ULAN is structured as a thesaurus, compliant with ISO and NISO standards for thesaurus construction; it contains hierarchical, equivalence, and associative relationships. The focus of each ULAN record is an artist. Currently there are around 120,000 artists in the ULAN. In the database, each artist record (also called a subject in this manual) is identified by a unique numeric ID. Linked to each artist record are names, related artists, sources for the data, and notes

Museum Amstelkring
Ons' Lieve Heer op Solder (English: Our Lord in the Attic) is a 17th-century canal house, house church, and museum in the city center of Amsterdam, The Netherlands. The Catholic Church was built on the top three floors of the canal house during the 1660s. It is an important example of a "schuilkerk", or "clandestine church" in which Catholics and other religious dissenters from the seventeenth century Dutch Reformed Church, unable to worship in public, held services. The church has been open as a museum since 28 April 1888[1], and has 85,000 visitors annually.[2]Contents1 Canal house 2 Museum 3 Collection 4 References 5 External linksCanal house[edit]The canal house on the Oudezijds Voorburgwal 40The canal house on the 14th century canal Oudezijds Voorburgwal, currently on number 40, was built in 1630.

Andrea Meldolla (Croatian: Andrija Medulić), also known as Andrea Schiavone or Andrea Lo Schiavone (c. 1510/1515–1563) was an Italian[1] Renaissance painter and etcher, born in present-day Croatia, active mainly in the city of Venice.Contents1 Biography 2 References 3 Notes 4 Further reading 5 External linksBiography[edit] Meldolla was born in the Venetian-ruled city of Zara in Dalmatia, now Zadar in Croatia,[2] the son of a garrison commander of a post nearby. His family was originally from the small town of Meldola, close to the city of Forlì in Romagna. He trained either in Zara or in Venice.

He worked in fresco, panel painting, and etching (teaching himself to etch by working initially from drawings by Parmigianino)
