Posted in books by Editor on March 27, 2019

From Brill:

Jan Dirk Baetens and Dries Lyna, eds., Art Crossing Borders: The Internationalisation of the Art Market in the Age of Nation States, 1750–1914, Series: Studies in the History of Collecting & Art Markets, Volume 6 (Leiden: Brill, 2019), 351 pages, ISBN: 978-9004291980, €127 / $153.

Art Crossing Borders offers a thought-provoking analysis of the internationalisation of the art market during the long nineteenth century. Twelve experts, dealing with a wide variety of geographical, temporal, and commercial contexts, explore how the gradual integration of art markets structurally depended on the simultaneous rise of nationalist modes of thinking, in unexpected and ambiguous ways.

Jan Dirk Baetens (PhD, University of Leuven, 2011), is Assistant Professor at Radboud University Nijmegen. He has published widely on the nineteenth-century art market and on nineteenth-century historicism. He is preparing a book-length study on the Belgian history and historical genre painter Henri Leys.

Dries Lyna (PhD, University of Antwerp, 2010), is Assistant Professor at Radboud University Nijmegen. He has published on the art markets and material culture of eighteenth-century cities in the Low Countries, co-editing Concepts of Value in European Material Culture, 1500–1900 (2015). He is currently preparing a book on the rise of art auctions in the Austrian Netherlands.
