Special Issue "The Fate of Antiquities in the Nazi Era"
2023

Articles 0282-0294
Guest-edited by Irene Bald Romano
This publication was inspired by the 2017–2019 German/American Provenance Research Exchange Program (PREP). We hope that it will augment our understanding of the role of antiquities in the art world in the Nazi period, the aesthetics of National Socialism, antiquities collectors and dealers in Europe in the late 19th century and the first half of the 20th century, and the various ways in which antiquities changed hands during the precarious Nazi period. The articles also provide a wealth of bibliographic and other resources, as well as a framework for research methodologies that can be employed by other scholars examining works of ancient art and archaeological objects that have a history in the Nazi period.

Special Issue "Vienna as a Sculptural Centre in the Long 19th Century. Current Research on Sculpture in Central Europe"
2021

Articles 0260-0269
Guest-edited by Ingeborg Schemper-Sparholz and Caroline Mang
The Vienna Art Academy has always attracted budding artists from all over the Empire, especially after the reform in 1872. At the same time, the project of the Vienna Ringstraße offered the prospect of commissions. Still, the networks of sculptors in the capital and the crown lands during these decades have not been widely explored. This is not a matter of purely art-historical questions; rather, the national question plays an important role.

Special Issue "Constructing Nationhood in Early Modern Rome"
2020

Articles 0237-0243
Guest-edited by Susanne Kubersky-Piredda and Tobias Daniels
In the Early Modern period, the concept of national identity differed greatly from the nineteenth- and early twentieth-century ideology of the nation state. The word natio defined a group of persons unified by common territorial origins and cultural markers such as language, habits, customs, traditions, and confessions. Like no other city in Europe, Rome, home of the papacy, destination of pilgrims, and metropolis of art, was a perpetual hub for foreigners and thus was an ideal laboratory for the formation of national identities and their representation on an international stage.

Special Issue "Prekäre Vergangenheit? Barockforschung im östlichen Mitteleuropa unter den Bedingungen des Sozialismus"
2019

Articles 0211-0217
Guest-edited by Michaela Marek (†) and Eva Pluhařová-Grigienė
The field of art historiography under state socialism in Central and Eastern Europe has been little researched to date. In a comparative approach, this special issue examines the interpretative models that architectural historians in Eastern Europe applied to Baroque architecture during the Cold War.

Special Issue "From Living to Visual Images. Paradigms of Corporeal Iconicity in Late Antiquity"
2019

Articles 0222-0229
Guest-edited by Michele Bacci and Vladimir Ivanovici
In the Roman world, various traditions of iconic life were present in the period before the icon was affirmed. By examining these, the articles in this issue restore part of the context in which the concept of the icon was born. And they invite readers to add a new perspective on the phenomenon: that of a surrogate for the living iconic body.

Special Issue "Mies und mehr ... . Transferprozesse in Architektur und Wohnkultur der 1920er und 1930er Jahre"
2018

Articles 0184-0188
Guest-edited by Rudolf Fischer
This special issue presents new research perspectives on the architectural and interior design discourses of modernity. It questions the complex relationship between the process of artistic creation, society and technology, while also considering the actors and networks implicated in the formation of the avant-garde modernism.

Special Issue "Gottfried Lindauer – Painting New Zealand"
2018

Articles 0189-0197
Guest-edited by Alexandra Karentzos, Miriam Oesterreich and Britta Schmitz
"Gottfried Lindauer – Painting New Zealand" breaks new ground in the debate on cultural transfer processes of the 19th century. It generates new perspectives on past as well as present exhibition regimes, addressing questions of colonial self-presentation and representation, both of which are intellectually intriguing and currently the subject of politically-charged controversy. The dissonance between how the Māori used and valued portraiture and how the West viewed and reflected on the pictorial is discussed, as are negotiations over the documentary and the pictorial.

Special Issue "When Art History Meets Design History"
2014

Articles 0083-0089
Guest-edited by Glenn Adamson and Anne Puetz
In this special issue you will find discussion of several episodes in the relationship between the fine and the decorative arts, ranging from the Renaissance to the late nineteenth century. Despite this broad chronological sweep there is much in common among our authors' findings. Above all, and perhaps contrary to readers' expectations, each essay contests the notion that fine and decorative were truly opposed in their period.

Special Issue "Collecting Italian Art North of the Alps 1700–1800"
2014

Articles 0100-0101
Guest-edited by Martin Olin (Nationalmuseum, Stockholm / Swedish Institute in Rome)
Grand Tours progressing as far as Italy were unusual among the Scandinavian nobility. Therefore, the visits to Italy of Frederik IV of Denmark had a disproportionately large impact. J. Svenningsen describes the effect of the visits on the taste of a group of courtiers traveling with the Danish prince and traces their ensuing patronage of Italian art. F. Benuzzi studies the less-known patronage of Venetian sculpture North of the Alps, with patrons including Peter the Great, the Earl of Carlisle and the Swedish diplomat and collector Count Carl Gustaf Tessin.
