Record information

Each record provides a minimal description that includes the following fields:

If more than one, the first one or the director of the work. Printmakers and illustrators are not included.
Title of the work
We have an exact transcription of the titles, so you can find words that do not conform to the current grammar rules.
We have chosen only one form into the publisher's name and/or the printer's, usually the one which is more often found in sources of information or the most complete.
The date of publication of the work, in the case of exhibitions, may not coincide with the year in which they were conducted.
 Document Type
We have established large document types
It was decided to implement a single general subject  for each document. You can get more information about this topic and access the list of subjects

Summary of the content of the work, it may include information about the gestation, publishing, authorship, if more than one author, ... or in the case of exhibitions, information about the type of art objects displayed , etc.
