Abstract

This paper reports on the initial idea of a core conceptual model for the Golden Agents Project, which aims to integrate several het- erogeneous datasets about cultural heritage of the Dutch Golden Age. We hypothesize that the combination of event and storytelling modeling would provide us a common infrastructure to represent and retrieve some core information regardless to its specific nature: painting, book, notary act or theatre performance. The proposed model was developed based on (i) several discussions conducted with humanities experts and (ii) foundational ontology for ground- ing the modeling decisions. It is assessed through a case study about Vermeer, the painting ‘Girl with a Pearl Earring’ and a novel written about the production of the painting. We conclude that the model satisfactorily addresses the case study, and we discuss some next steps to further assess and extend the model, as well as implementing and testing it in practice.
