CODART, Dutch and Flemish art in museums worldwide

Netherlands Yearbook for History of Art (NKJ 73) Appears

What aspects of their environment do artists decide to depict? Are they critical of the way in which others treat the environments that surround them?

The latest volume of the Netherlands Yearbook for History of Art (NKJ) finds an answer to these questions by focusing on the Dutch environment between the fifteenth century and now, a wetland that humans constantly tried to shape and reshape according to their needs. Gathering essays by scholars of early modern and modern and contemporary art, Wetland discovers the past of future landscapes in art.

The volume is edited Joost Keizer, Ann-Sophie Lehmann and Stephanie Porras. For more information, please see the Brill website.
