From ArtHist.net:

Travelling and Art in Europe in the 17th and 18th Centuries
Quart, The Quarterly of the Institute of Art History at the University of Wrocław 56 (June 2020)

Articles due by 1 March 2020

Europe in the 17th and 18th century was an area without sealed national borders and passports, which facilitated free movement of people, transfers of works of art, and the exchange of artistic ideas. Travellers were artists and art lovers, military and clerical, merchants and pilgrims; various works of art were transported across the borders, and thanks to the medium of printmaking, the latest trends and artistic novelties quickly spread across Europe. This dynamic circulation in the 17th and 18th centuries caused so many interesting artistic phenomena to take place in this area, which can today be of interest to researchers. Issue 56 of Quart—guest edited by Andrzej Kozieł—will therefore focus on art-related aspects of travel. Proposed topics of interest include:
• migrations and educational journeys of artists
• transfers of works of art and artistic ideas
• pilgrimage and art
• works of art in travellers’ accounts
• media disseminating works of art
