it's the best
The Swiss Institute for Art Research (SIK-ISEA), founded in 1951, is a competence centre for art scholarship and art technology with both a national and an international focus. Its primary activities are research, documentation, dissemination of knowledge and services (conservation and restoration, scientific analysis, expertise and appraisals, inventories, photography) in the field of fine art. Its core speciality is the production of art in Switzerland from the Middle Ages to the present day.
The Institute’s headquarters are in Zurich at Villa Bleuler, built in 1885–1888 to plans by Alfred Friedrich Bluntschli. Since 1988 SIK-ISEA has maintained a satellite in francophone Switzerland, its «Antenne romande» at Lausanne University. For the Italian-speaking region, the Institute opened an «Ufficio di contatto» in 2010 at the Museo Vincenzo Vela in Ligornetto.
