Archives of American Art Journal 56.2 (fall 2017)
Supported by the Dedalus Foundation, this issue features new research on the influential modernist artist, writer, editor, and teacher Robert Motherwell (1915-1991). This issue also introduces a new section of the journal dedicated to living artists’ interventions in the Archives.
The longest-running scholarly journal devoted to the history of American art, the AAAJ aims to showcase new approaches to and out-of-the-box thinking about primary sources. It contains both commissioned and peer-reviewed research articles that engage with the vast holdings of the Smithsonian’s Archives of American Art.
