Since its founding in 1913, The Art Bulletin has published leading scholarship in all aspects of art history. Printed quarterly, the journal fosters engagement with current intellectual debate and fosters development in intellectual practice.
The most recent issue, December 2009, Volume XCI, Number 4, includes work on Spanish representation of the Aztec, imaging childhood in 18th-century France, and selling artists in 18th-century Shanghai. As the cover reflects, the keynote essay involves Kehinde Wiley. Krista Thompson’s “The Sound of Light Reflections on Art History in the Visual Culture of Hip-Hop,” investigates Wiley and Louis Gispert’s use of historic painting styles to capture hip-hop subjects.
