HNA Review of Books posts reviews of recent books and exhibition catalogues in the history of the visual arts in the Netherlands from c.1350 to 1750, along with reviews of publications on German, French, and English art, and issues of global trading networks relevant to the Netherlands in this period.
All reviews are commissioned by the members of the editorial board listed below. Reviews published in the HNA Newsletter and Review of Books since 2002 have also been made available here for open access. The Newsletter will cease production with the Fall 2017 issue, but the Newsletter Archive also provides previous issues of the HNA Newsletter for viewing or download as pdf files. For members, HNAR also posts a list of all New Titles that have been brought to the board’s attention, a Bibliography of Recent Articles and Essays, and a List of Dissertations.
HNAR accepts for review publications that deal with Netherlandish, German and Franco-Flemish art and architecture between 1350 and 1750. Field editors will commission reviews. Unsolicited reviews will not be accepted.
Reviewers need not be members of HNA, but it is encouraged.
Upon accepting a request for a review, the publication will be sent to the reviewer. The reviewer is requested to submit his/her review to the responsible field editor within three to six months, in order to maintain timeliness.
Reviews should be between approximately 1000 and 1500 words. They should not contain footnotes. References to other publications, if desired, should be incorporated into the main text. Field editors may request revisions or edit for length as necessary.
We encourage reviews that both provide an overview of the contents, which is particularly useful for foreign language publications, and are critical. We however request reviewers to maintain a fair and objective tone.
The reviewer alone is responsible for the content and accuracy of his/her review. Reviews do not express the opinions of the board nor of the field editors or general editor.
