I was thinking that not a lot of people blog about art history. Art history is near and dear to my heart and not being able to believe that some passionate art historian wouldn't have taken up the practice of blogging about such a vast topic, I went in search of some great academic art blogs. Having a thirst for what art historians are talking about these days I found the following:
Art History Today - Who is the person behind this blog? It seems quite excellent, informed and pretty much updated... at least until October of this year. I enjoyed pursuing the category list, and the writings, and wished to find out more about the author. Ahhh... a secret, I guess. No where is the author mentioned nor is there an email address. I look forward to his or her next post.
Art History Newsletter - a good one. Edited by Jonathan Lackman, this blog contains posts on American, Ancient, Contemporary, Islamic, Modern and Renaissance art. Also theory and museum news. It is up to date and offers contributions from several PhD students studying a variety of art topics and working at some pretty fine art institutions.
And so seriously, that is about all I found. Modernkicks references a post done at Art History Newsletter asking "why have there been no great art history bloggers?" Do you know of any good art history blogs? Let me know and post a comment below.
