Welcome to the NG Beta API, which has been set-up to allow direct access to structured, linkable data describing the National Gallery Collection. The data has initially been provided in the form of a basic json array, but work is currently under way to fully map the data to the CIDOC CRM and provide a standard semantic presentation of the data.
These web pages have been set up to provide examples of how the system works in a human readable form, but the system is generally designed to be called directly by other computer systems.
