New Volume (9:1) of the Journal of Historians of Netherlandish Art Dedicated to Walter Liedtke

Historians of Netherlandish Art is pleased to announce the publication of the Journal of Historians of Netherlandish Art or JHNA, vol. 9:1 (Winter 2017).  This special issue, edited by Stephanie Dickey, Nadine Orenstein, and Alison Kettering, honors the memory of Walter Liedtke, former Curator of European Paintings at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, who died in 2015.  Seventeen of his colleagues have contributed essays, all of them aligned in some way with Walter’s interests at the Metropolitan. A dedication and a bibliography of Walter’s publications accompany the essays.

About the Journal of Historians of Netherlandish Art

JHNA is the electronic journal of Historians of Netherlandish Art. Founded in 2009, the journal publishes issues of peer-reviewed articles two times per year.  These articles focus on art produced in the Netherlands (north and south) during the early modern period (c. 1400-c.1750), and in such other countries as Germany as they relate to Netherlandish art.  This includes studies of painting, sculpture, graphic arts, tapestry, architecture, and decoration, from the perspectives of art history, art conservation, museum studies, historiography, city and regional planning, and collecting history.
