One Off Journal Issues: The Fate of Antiquities in the Nazi Era, RIHA Journal

One Off Journal Issues: RIHA Journal

Occasionally issues of journals where one might not normally think to look produce thematic issues of interest. Availability online makes them much more discoverable. A case in point: An  issue of  RIHA Journal

The Fate of Antiquities in the Nazi Era, RIHA Journal 0282-0294, a collaboration of the Getty Research Institute and the Zentralinstitut für Kunstgeschichte, guest-edited by Irene Bald Romano (University of Arizona, Tucson, USA)

This publication was inspired by the 2017–2019 German/American Provenance Research Exchange Program for Museum Professionals (PREP). We hope that it will augment our understanding of the role of antiquities in the art world in the Nazi period, the aesthetics of National Socialism, antiquities collectors and dealers in Europe in the late 19th century and the first half of the 20th century, and the various ways in which antiquities changed hands during the precarious Nazi period. The articles also provide a wealth of bibliographic and other resources, as well as a framework for research methodologies that can be employed by other scholars examining works of ancient art and archaeological objects that have a history in the Nazi period.
