Back from Summer Break (Fall officially begins tomorrow)

Posted in resources by Editor on September 21, 2009

The Art History Newsletter resumed publication on September 8. Editor Jonathan Lackman is a Ph.D. candidate at NYU working on nineteenth-century art criticism in France. He’s written for Slate, Harper’s, and The New Yorker. Contributors include Daniel Belasco, Anne Byrd, Allyson Drucker, Ross Finocchio, and Benjamin Lima. Over the past two weeks, postings have addressed Vincent Scully’s decision not to return to the classroom at Yale (he actually retired in 1991 but has continued teaching until now), recent additions to the Dictionary of Art Historians, tenure decisions at Harvard, and the upcoming renovations at the Musée d’Orsay (starting in November the museum will be closed for a year).
