Administrative history

The Journal of Canadian Art History, a scholarly publication, was founded in 1974 and appears twice yearly. It publishes studies in all aspects of the history of Canadian art, architecture, and the decorative arts, and Inuit and North American Native art - from the eighteenth century to the contemporary period. Contents include individual studies on artists, architects, art works, and buildings, as well as articles on art media, art theory and criticism, patronage, institutions, and education. Themes and issues in Canadian art such as problems of iconography, connoisseurship, attribution, and stylistic development are also covered. In addition, such features as Sources and Documents, Book Reviews, and Commentaries are regularly presented. The material is published in English or French and the articles are accompanied by a translated résumé.

The Journal of Canadian Art History is the only scholarly journal devoted entirely to the issues and events in Canadian art history.
