The Mary Griggs Burke Collection

June 2015

Over five decades Mary Griggs Burke assembled one of the finest private collections of Asian art, including the largest collection of Japanese art outside of Japan.

The Burke Foundation produced a two-volume catalogue of the entire collection before it was to be gifted to various institutions, including the Metropolitan Museum and the Minneapolis Institute of Art.

I was asked to create a website that would serve as an online counterpart to the catalogue, and would make use of the web to provide features not available in the printed book, such as multi-faceted browsing and searching capabilities, high-resolution image details, and interactive bibliographies.
