The latest number of the journal Visual Resources, published by Routledge/Taylor and Francis, presents a Special Issue Guest-Edited by MEAGHAN CLARKE and FRANCESCO VENTRELLA (University of Sussex), entitled ‘Women’s Expertise and the Culture of Connoisseurship’.
This issue has many articles that may interest the historian of the art market (especially appealing for those concerned with the linkages between the market and art historiography), such as ‘Mrs. Berenson, Mrs. Gardner and Miss Toplady: Connoisseurship, Collecting and Commerce in London (1898–1905)‘ by MACHTELT ISRAELS, and ‘“This Feminine Scholar”: Belle da Costa Greene and the Shaping of J.P. Morgan’s Legacy‘, by art market scholar FLAMINIA GENNARI SANTORI.
Visual Resources started in 1980 with the aim to support publications on the study of reproductive images, from photography to prints and digital image libraries. In the past 37 years its scope has expanded to include art historiography, art theory and even art practice. New focus is being given to topics related to the buying, selling and collecting of images, and the theoretical discourse(s) associated with these activities.
The journal is edited by Barbara Pezzini (barbarartpezzini(at)gmail.com), a founding member of TIAMSA, who is always happy to consider submissions that address topics related to the art market.
