The Journal of the International Association of Research Institutes in the History of Art invites submissions for a special issue on Collecting Italian Art North of the Alps, 1600-1800.
The Italian schools occupied central positions in early modern art collections, a tradition that continued through the 19th and 20th centuries. The primacy of Italian art became a cornerstone for museum practice as well as a founding principle for the nascent art history discipline. This issue takes a closer look at the beginning of this tradition in the 17th and 18th century. More information.
