ABOUT ART BULLETIN

Art Bulletin of Nationalmuseum is published annually and contains articles on the history and theory of art regarding the Museum’s acquisitions and collections. It also reports the past year’s exhibition program. The Art Bulletin authors are mainly active at the Nationalmuseum.

The Art Bulletin was originally a printed publication but since 2014 it is a free digital resource, available online. Developing the Art Bulletin into a digital publication is a part of Nationalmuseum’s efforts to promote Open Access and the free access to scientific information.

The Art Bulletin is available free of charge and uses DiVA* as a publication platform but can easily be downloaded from this web page.

* DiVA - Academic Archive On-line, is a publishing system for research and student theses and a digital archive for long - term preservation of publications.
