About ESNA

Announcement: The Van Gogh Museum Visiting Fellow in the History of Nineteenth-Century Art 2019
Tradition and Identity: The Nation in 19th-Century Art
2-7June 2019, Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam

This year’s Visiting Fellow is Prof. Neil McWilliam, Walter H. Annenberg Professor of Art and Art History in Trinity College of Arts and Sciences at Duke University (USA). The course sets out to question assumptions about the historical role of nationalism in nineteenth-century art, and to elaborate a theoretical framework for approaching the ways in which the nation and its cultural traditions have been assimilated into the discipline of art history. While focusing centrally on France, particularly in the period from 1870 to 1914, we will look at relevant artworks, artistic movements, critical writings, and administrative interventions from across Europe and North America.

ESNA en RKD bundelen krachten

Samenwerking geformaliseerd tijdens ESNA Winter Seminar

Dan Haag, 25 januari 2019 – Samen een platform bieden voor iedereen die bezig is met kunstgeschiedenis uit de 19e eeuw, kennis en infrastructuur delen en elkaar versterken, infrastructuur borgen, slagkracht genereren. Het zijn zaken die horen bij het moderne samenwerken in de kunst- en cultuursector.

Ook ESNA (Stichting European Society for Nineteenth-Century Art ) en het RKD – Nederlands Instituut voor Kunstgeschiedenis bundelen vanaf nu hun krachten.

Dr. Rachel Esner, Voorzitter ESNA: “De 19e eeuw verdient meer aandacht in de academische en museale wereld. ESNA heeft de afgelopen vijf jaar een flinke bijdrage geleverd aan de ontwikkelingen op het vakgebied in zowel binnen- als buitenland. De samenwerking met het RKD geeft ons nieuwe mogelijkheden om deze missie met nog meer kracht voort te zetten”.

Prof.dr. Chris Stolwijk, Algemeen directeur RKD: “ESNA heeft zich de laatste jaren ontwikkeld tot een zeer actief podium waar professionals op het gebied van de 19e eeuw graag samenkomen. Het RKD biedt dit interessante netwerk nu en in de toekomst graag een stevige basis voor verdere ontplooiing.”

De al bestaande informele samenwerking zal worden geformaliseerd op vrijdag 25 januari, tijdens het bekende jaarlijkse ESNA winterseminar. Het voornemen is om dit seminar en soortgelijke activiteiten in de toekomst regelmatig samen te organiseren.

Mission Statement

The European Society for Nineteenth-Century Art (ESNA) is a platform formed under the auspices of the Dutch Postgraduate School for Art History (Onderzoekschool Kunstgeschiedenis). ESNA was founded by a group of scholars, graduate students and museum professionals based in the Netherlands whose research focuses on European art of the long nineteenth century. ESNA’s aim is to provide a forum to promote the exchange of ideas in this field, to support and encourage graduate research, and to enhance networking opportunities for participants. ESNA seeks to contribute to, and foster debate on, nineteenth-century art through the organization of an annual symposium, workshops, excursions, the invitation of visiting speakers, and the co-ordination with other organizations and groups devoted to the study of the nineteenth century. Although originating in the Low Countries, ESNA aims to create a broad international network for the advancement of research into all aspects of nineteenth-century European art.
