RKD Netherland Institute for art History
The oldest surviving art-historical journal in the world is a Dutch periodical. Oud Holland began life in 1883 with articles on art from the Middle Ages, the Renaissance period and from the time of Frans Hals and Rembrandt. With its numerous groundbreaking contributions – from important archival finds to major art-historical discoveries – Oud Holland has established an impressive reputation for itself.
Having appeared on paper for 135 years without interruption, Oud Holland is reinventing itself this year. The editorial board has been strengthened with the addition of more scholars and an online platform for Oud Holland – new style is under construction. The scope of the journal will be expanded to include nineteenth-century art as well as art from the Southern Netherlands and Belgium. Oud Holland is ready for the next generation of art-historical researchers.
