CODART, Dutch and Flemish art in museums worldwide


CODARTfeatures are published monthly by CODART, the international network for curators of Dutch and Flemish art. The articles provide information on current curatorial developments, collections of Dutch and Flemish art in museums worldwide, as well as insight into the work of the museum curator. They are meant for everyone interested in Dutch and Flemish art around the globe.

In 2019 CODARTfeatures succeeded the eZine (2012-2018) as CODART’s main publication platform. Over the coming years, all eZine articles will be republished as a feature. In the meantime, the eZine remains accessible at Eventually also the articles from the CODART Courant (1998-2011) will be added to the features page. Until then the Courant articles can be found in PDF format here. This means that in time CODARTfeatures will offer all articles ever published by CODART.
