• Dendro4Art is an online portal with metadata and raw data based on dendrochronological research. Dendro4Art is an initiative developed by CATS at SMK (Copenhagen) and the RKD (The Hague) and was made possible thanks to a generous grant provided by The Carlsberg Foundation, Denmark.

  • Reports and raw data from other dendrochronologists have been, and will continue to be, added in the future. Want to share your dendrochronological data with the academic community? Contact us!
  • The dendrochronology research conducted by Peter Klein forms the foundation of Dendro4Art.

The original dendrochronological reports by Peter Klein are vital for the interpretation of the dating and origin of the wood used in art objects. In addition to the metadata, more than 16.600 raw tree-ring measurements were transferred to CATS by Peter Klein. Here the data were migrated into currently accessible datasets. This immense and unique raw tree-ring dataset for each piece of wood used in art objects is now available for review thanks to a new data management system that can be accessed and used for future research.
