The journal is the flagship publication of the Association for Art History. This subject association was set up in 1974 by a group of people passionate about art history. They recognised the social value and importance of art history, and founded an organization based on a broad and inclusive art history, regardless of background or schooling. It was, and remains, an outward-looking organization that dared to embrace art history in schools, polytechnics, museums and universities up and down the country.

Much has changed since 1974, but the Association for Art History’s commitment to ensuring that art history is a broad and inclusive subject remains as strong as ever. To learn more about its work, and for details of how to become a member, visit here.
