These volumes of Art in America’s history have not yet been digitized.
Founded in 1913 by art critic, historian and collector Frederic Fairchild Sherman under founding editor Wilhelm R. Valentiner, A.i.A., in its early issues, focused on old masters in American collections. For much of the ‘20s, the magazine was named Art in America and Elsewhere, reflecting its increasing geographic reach.
Its editors have been Jean Lipman (1941-71), Brian O’Doherty (1971-74), Elizabeth C. Baker (1974-2008), Marcia E. Vetrocq (2008-2011), and Lindsay Pollock (2011-present). Among the noted artists and critics who have written for its pages are Bernard Berenson, Benjamin H.D. Buchloh, Hal Foster, Adolph Gottlieb, Rosalind Krauss, Donald Kuspit, Thomas McEvilley, Robert Morris, Barbara Rose, Irving Sandler, Leo Steinberg, Craig Owens and Robert Storr.
The magazine was purchased in 1984 by Peter M. Brant, who owns it today.
