A journal of the nation's visual heritage
Since its founding in 1987, American Art has been an indispensable resource for scholars, collectors, and museum-goers who want to enrich their understanding of the nation's art and culture. American Art encompasses all aspects of the country's visual heritage from colonial to contemporary times. Elegant color plates give the journal a distinctive appearance, and the articles are written in an engaging style.
Articles planned in the coming months include the following:
