NEW HAVEN, CONN.-
Yale University Press commissioned a new ebook for the A&AePortal
, its innovative art and architecture platform, going live in July 2020.
The Presss first original art ebook, Globalizing Impressionism: Reception, Translation, and Transnationalism is a digital-only volume exclusively available on the A&AePortal. Editors Alexis Clark, PhD, Visiting Scholar at Duke University, and Frances Fowle, PhD, Personal Chair of Nineteenth-Century Art, University of Edinburgh and Senior Curator, French Art, the National Galleries of Scotland, compiled this groundbreaking collection of essays from the Courtauld Institute of Arts 2017 international conference "Writing Impressionism Into and Out of Art History, 1874 to Today. The e-publication explores the specific ways Impressionism, both as a term and as a style, was globalized.
Patricia Fidler, Publisher, Yale University Press Art and Architecture, said, We are delighted to debut our first, original ebook on the A&AePortal. It meaningfully enriches the platforms ever-expanding library of key works of scholarship in the history of art, architecture, decorative arts, photography, and design. Given our current moment, e-resources are even more vital for online coursework and remote learning. The Press is currently making trial subscriptions available through the end of the current academic year. We are deeply grateful to Dr. Clark and Professor Fowle for the platforms first born-digital effort.
"Yale University Presss A&AePortal provides an apt forum for our anthology on the globalization of Impressionism. It will enable the swift transfer of new research by an international set of scholars and curators to academics, students, and other readers. At a time when there seem to be many barriers to academic publishingincluding the environmental impact made by the publication of physical bookswe anticipate that virtual platforms such as the A&AePortal will expand access to art and art history, while broadening and deepening discussions in the discipline, said Dr. Clark and Professor Fowle.
This fall, the A&AePortal, in association with the National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC, will release the first digital edition of David Anfams critically acclaimed catalogue raisonné of Mark Rothkos works on canvas, originally published in 1998 and featuring 950 color illustrations. This publication joins the digital multi-volume catalogue raisonné of paintings and collages by Robert Motherwell originally published by Yale University Press in association with the Dedalus Foundation in 2012, and now out of print.
