Timeline design for visualising cultural heritage data, PhD thesis, Chapter 8.
Portraits from the past can tell us a lot. What did people wear? What sort of people were painted? How did they want to be presented? ‘Faces of Sweden’ is an interactive timeline showcasing historical portraits from the Nordic Museum, Stockholm. Use it to cut through time, compare different periods and see how clothes, hairstyles and the style of portraiture changes.
The timeline displays 785 portraits (mostly oil paintings but also prints, silhouettes, photographs) dating 1570-2003.
