A new edition of the Art Bulletin

The publication is published in digital format, and is made available free of charge both to read online and for downloading.
The contents of the new double issue of the Art Bulletin of Nationalmuseum Stockholm reflects primarily the extensive acquisition activities at the museum during the years 2017 and 2018. The first part contains a number of in-depth reports on the most significant acquisitions, in the form of scholarly articles. The subjects provide a clear picture of where the emphasis has been on the acquisitions: old masters of the 17th century, realism and other nineteenth century art, and contemporary design. Even though the articles are written primarily by the museums art historians, texts by international colleagues and specialists have also been included. Caterina Volpi from Sapienza University of Rome has thoroughly considered two newly found drawings on wood by Salvator Rosa in the museums collections, and the 2018 Tessin Lecture by Gail Feigenbaum of the Getty Research Institute is also reproduced in an article. The second part of the bulletin consists of an account of all over one thousand purchases and gifts received in 2017 and 2018, often with brief comments, plus some other interesting titbits.
