Der Neue Overbeck Online

The Yale University community now has online access to the Der neue Overbeck (DNO): Die antiken Schriftquellen zun den bildenden Künsten, edited by Sascha Kansteiner, Klaus Hallof, Lauri Lehrmann, Bernd Seidensticker, and Klaus Stemmer (De Gruyter, 20014.) A monumental expansion and revision of Johannes Overbeck's Antiken Schriftquellen zur Geschichte der bildenden Künste bei den Griechen (Leipzig, 1868) the DNO collects the written sources, including inscriptions, for Greek visual artists from the earliest remains to the 5th century A.D. German translations, brief philological commentaries, and bibliographies are also provided, as well as illustrations. The five volume print set is also available in the Classics Library. The online version is a fully searchable database and includes somewhat higher resolution images than those reproduced in the printed volume. Scans of the 'alte Overbeck' are available from the Hathi Trust digital library:
