Since Art History was first published in 1978, it has been a vital space for debate. The material that has subsequently appeared in the journal’s pages remains a rich archive of research material. To complement our on-going programme of special issues, Art History has commissioned a number of scholars to draw together thematic collections of articles to form virtual issues of the journal. Accompanied by newly-written historiographic introductions, this series of interventions points to the continuing importance of Art History as an invaluable disciplinary repository.
