Analyzing how libraries have been used by art historians, art critics and their publics is opening new avenues for art historiography.
Historic libraries offer underutilized resources for understanding art history. This session explores the potential of such collections – whether intended explicitly for the study of art or not – to deepen and broaden our interpretation of art historiography and its relationship to social, intellectual and geopolitical currents.
