Art History Bloggers

I just imported all of my art history posts onto this site today. My previous blog contained a lot of other miscellaneous thoughts and pictures intermixed with my art history posts, and I have debated for a long time whether I should keep the two paradigms separate. Reading this article helped solidify my decision to create a separate art history blog. Although I don’t pretend to be a “great art history blogger” (isn’t that title a great play off of Nochlin’s article “Why Have There Been No Great Women Artists?”), I hope that I can make a contribution to art history through blogging. More than anything, this blog is a great way for me to write down my research and thoughts.

Hopefully I will be able to reach my target audience of art historians and art lovers with a blog that specifically focuses on art. It would be really fun to build up a strong community of art historian bloggers.

    I’m glad that you’re doing this. We need more of this sort of dialogue. I actually considered starting an art history blog right when I finished grad school to keep my mind sharp in the field. I even set up the url, but I guess I never got around to launching the blog because I got discouraged after not being able to get a job related to the arts. Maybe I will launch it after all, one of these days.

    Do it, Kiersten! Do it! I really think that this blog is helping me keep up with the discipline.

    For more on the history of art (including contemporary), as well as textiles and miscellanea, you might be interested in Venetian Red. A good place to start is

    Also listed are links to other art, textile, design sites.

    Thanks for carrying the art history torch. Keep up the good work. Liz Hager
