Chris Stolwijk, head of research at the Van Gogh Museum, has announced the initial volume of a new series.
Van Gogh Studies I: Current Issues in 19th-Century Art
The Van Gogh Museum (Amsterdam), in collaboration with Waanders Publishers has taken the initiative in publishing a new scholarly series, Van Gogh Studies. The museum has long provided a stimulus for research into the art of the period 1830-1914 – with particular emphasis on the life and work of Vincent van Gogh – out of a conviction that research of the highest standard is fundamental to the museum’s activities, whether they are directed towards the general public or specialists.
Van Gogh Studies will publish recent, in-depth research of the highest scholarly standards into Van Gogh and related areas of 19th- and early 20th-century art and culture. The new series will be published annually, as an anthology of essays alternating with monographic studies.
Van Gogh Studies aims to provide a forum for the expression of the many diverse, and sometimes contradictory, trends in the study of 19th- and early 20th-century art. The essays will examine the life and work of Vincent van Gogh and his contemporaries from a variety of perspectives. The contributions are intended as a vehicle for further scholarly research.
