Auriane Quoix is a master’s student in “Digital Technologies Applied to History” at the Ecole nationale des chartes. Also graduated from Panthéon-Sorbonne University with a master’s degree in art history, she specialized in contemporary art from the end of the 19th century, through the study of Japanese-inspired engravings and fan-shaped paintings, a format which caught the attention of many artists at that time. Her two master’s thesis, supervised by Emmanuel Pernoud, are devoted to the Japonism of Henri Guérard.
In December 2018, she presented her research results in a paper called “Henri Guérard (1846-1897) un « Japonais de Paris », peintre d’éventails”, at the 13th Biennial SFEJ (French Society of Japanese Studies) Conference, organized at the EHESS in Paris.
Auriane Quoix joined the VISUAL CONTAGIONS project in order to work out a process that will allow to automatically generate IIIF manifests for sources (exhibition catalogs, illustrated periodicals, etc.) which will be in the database. She is also responsible for images distribution and interoperability issues.
