Journal of Historians of Netherlandish Art
JHNA publishes issues of peer-reviewed articles two times per year. These articles focus on Netherlandish, German, and Franco-Flemish art during the early modern period (c. 1400-c.1750), and in other countries 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, and collecting history.
