Stemming from the Catalogue Raisonné published in two volumes by Skira editore, Milan, in 2008 and limited to the production of paintings, sculptures and installations from 1960 to 1999, the digital version of the Catalogue Raisonné, which can be freely accessed through the official website of the Fondazione Giulio e Anna Paolini (, documents all currently known works by Giulio Paolini. Only ad personam tributes, designed as such and bearing explicit references to the recipient on the recto, are excluded.

The online Catalogue is divided into three themed sections on the basis of the type of work:
- paintings, sculptures and installations (two-dimensional wall works, three-dimensional works on a plinth, installations, from small to large format all the way through to environmental dimensions)
- works on paper (collages and drawings, small and medium format)
- print editions and multiples

Each thematic area can be consulted in different ways:
- in chronological order, by scrolling and looking through the pages (the number of works to be displayed per page can be specified on the bottom left)
- by decade, through the timeline in the top centre
- through targeted searches, using the free search field and the search filters in the left-hand column (by entering a search term in one or more filters at the same time and/or selecting one or more words in the “Keywords” filter).

Clicking on the thumbnail of an image takes you to the entry on the work, which contains basic information, exhibitions and bibliography. Depending on the type of work, the drop-down items at the bottom include additional information on the set-up, iconographic sources and other relevant aspects.

The online Catalogue Raisonné is updated in real time to reflect the artist’s ongoing activity and the acquisition of new details and information.

From browsing images to reading texts, from a panoramic overview to in-depth research, the online Catalogue invites users to immerse themselves in the world of the artist, to discover his themes and motifs, his visual language and his thinking.
