Oud Holland Book and Exhibition Reviews

25 September 2019

After 132 volumes on paper, Oud Holland – Journal for Art of the Low Countries is now also available online. With academic reviews about current exhibitions and recent publications, the editors of Oud Holland are pleased to announce this new digital platform, as a resource for up-to-date discussions within the field of art of the Low Countries.

"If I work, I live; if I stop, I die." This triggering motto from the artist Frans Floris is the start of Elizabeth Savage's review on a recent publication by Edward Wouk. Peter van der Coelen gives important insights about a book on Rembrandt’s religious prints, by Charles Rosenberg – which was published in 2017. And former Oud Holland editor Fred Meijer writes an in-depth critique of the two-volume monograph by Anke Van Wagenberg on Jan Baptist Weenix and Jan Weenix. Finally, current editor Nils Büttner gives his commentary on the revolutionary exhibition about a forgotten talent: Michaelina Wautier.

The Oud Holland website will serve as a platform for news concerning the journal. Back issues will further be made available in the coming months. The first decade (1883-1889) can now be viewed and downloaded. Additionally, information is provided about how to submit an article, or get a subscription to the journal.
