Cécile van der Harten

Head, Image Department


Cécile has been the manager of the Image Department at the Rijksmuseum since 2006. She supervises a team of three account managers and five photographers, working in nine photo studios. Together they are responsible for the systematic digitization of the Rijksmuseum collection comprised of approximately one million objects in the highest quality possible. The aim of the Image Department is to have the entire collection digitized by 2022 and online available. A high-quality standards-based workflow and a Digital Asset Management (DAM) system has been established to accomplish this ambition. Currently Cécile is working closely together with Iris Labeur and the IT-department to choose and implement a new DAM.
