From the project website (accessed 2015-06-02):
- The Corpus Vasorum Antiquorum ('Corpus of Ancient Vases') consists of a series of high-quality catalogues of mostly ancient Greek painted pottery in collections around the world. The first fascicule appeared in 1922 and since then around 380 have appeared, illustrating more than 100,000 vases in 24 countries.
- The three-year CVA Online project began in 2000, when Oxford University's Beazley Archive was invited to undertake the digitization of out-of-print fascicules. The digitized catalogues can be viewed and browsed through this site. Digitization work continues under the auspices of the Archive.
