In his impressive four-volume work Répertoire des catalogues de ventes publiques intéressant l’art ou la curiosité, (Repertory of Catalogues of Public Sale concerned with Art or Objets d'art) Frits Lugt (1884–1970) covered the period 1600 to 1925. In Lugt’s Répertoire, the catalogues are arranged in strict chronological order and provide meticulous details of auctions, as well as recording annotations written in the catalogues. Lugt also indicates the library where the catalogue may be consulted. Lugt's Répertoire is one of the most widely consulted art historical reference works and lists more than 100,000 art sales catalogues of the period 1600 to 1925 from libraries in Europe and the USA.

Brill has digitized Volumes 1-3 of Lugt's Répertoire covering the period 1600-1900.
Lugt’s Répertoire Online is now avaialable in Open Access and serves as the entrance gate to Brill's publication Art Sales Catalogues Online.

Most of the studies comparing facial expressions of born blind and sighted persons that have been carried out up until now have involved children as subjects. Various studies claimed that the quantity and quality of facial expressions of congenitally blind persons deteriorate with increasing age. Here, we compared facial expressions of born blind and sighted individuals using adults predominantly. Facial expressions were documented in an individual interview inducing such emotions as think-concentrate, sadness, anger, disgust, joy, and surprise.

Common characteristics found amongst studied individuals were: similar repertoires* of movements over the entire interview, high-frequency and high-repertoire proportion of facial movements in concentration, sadness, and anger relative to those in disgust, joy, and surprise, similar distributions of a cumulative repertoire proportion of facial movements, and also common behavioral profiles of frequencies of facial movements in the emotional states discussed. Similar displays of eyebrow movements were found as well in concentration, sadness, and anger.

Our study indicates that most tested characteristics of facial movements are common to born blind and sighted subjects, except for different cumulative mean frequencies in different emotional states, which is possibly related to the lack of visual feedback in born blind persons.

Our study substantiates the hypothesis that facial expressions are innate and have important cues in the evolution of social communication.
