New Discoveries Submissions

“New Discoveries” are scholarly investigations of objects that have been brought to new or renewed prominence; for example, through an appearance on the art market, a museum acquisition, or in the process of scholarly research. Articles not only provide contextual information on the artwork and the life of the maker as is appropriate, but also offer thoughtfully researched insights on the significance of the work and its importance to the field.

There is no required word count or limit to the number of images; however, New Discoveries articles typically range in length from 4,000 to 6,000 words and have between 10 and 12 images.

Authors are encouraged to send a brief email describing their idea for a New Discoveries feature in advance. Please contact the co-managing editors, Petra Chu and Isabel Taube, at editors[at]
