Working Group of German and Polish Art Historians and Conservators
Art History Institute, Ludwig-Maximilian-University Munich
26. Conference of the Working Group of German and Polish Art Historians and Conservators / Homburger Colloquy (Homburger Gespräch) of the Böckler-Mare-Balticum-Foundation, Munich 11.-13. October 2018

In contrast, art historiography in the countries of these regions has long been influenced by nationally defined political concepts that posit clearly distinct cultural developments.

Art Dealers, America and the International Art Market, 1880-1930
The Getty Research Institute presents a symposium on the role of international art dealers in creating the collections, museums, and intellectual culture of the American art world in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
