Presentation of the ALMA Art Meets Artifacts started in 2009 by the Boymans van Beuningen Museum in Rotterdam. ALMA links depictions of pre-industrial objects, dating from the late Middle Ages to the nineteenth century, in paintings and prints to examples of similar material objects. The ALMA database can be searched extensively for the relation between object and depiction. Research results are published in the ALMA showcases.
