Enfilade

New Acquisition at the Folger

Posted in resources by Editor on May 22, 2010

James Northcote, "Romeo and Juliet, act V, scene III," ca. 1790

Last fall, Enfilade included a posting on Sotheby’s Old Master & Early British Paintings auction (29 October 2009), with reference to James Northcote’s painting of the tomb scene from Romeo and Juliet. Erin Blake, Curator of Art and Special Collections at the Folger Shakespeare Library, notes that the Folger acquired the picture — all 9 x 11 feet of it! Details can be found here and here.

Call for Articles: ‘JHNA’

Posted in Calls for Papers by Editor on May 22, 2010

The Journal of Historians of Netherlandish Art (JHNA) announces the submission deadline for its winter issue, August 1, 2010. Articles submitted by this date will be considered for publication in Winter 2010. For details, please consult the journal’s Submission Guidelines.

JHNA is an open-access, peer-reviewed journal published twice per year. Articles focus on art produced in the Netherlands (north and south) during the early modern period (c. 1400-c.1750), and in other countries and later periods as they relate to this earlier art. This includes studies of painting, sculpture, graphic arts, tapestry, architecture, and decoration, from the perspectives of art history, art conservation, museum studies, historiography, technical studies, and collecting history. Book and exhibition reviews, however, will continue to be published in the HNA Newsletter.
