Volume 22, Issue 2 | Autumn 2023

Editors’ Welcome

This issue features the seventh article in the “American Art History Digitally” series sponsored by the Terra Foundation for American Art, “From Zuni to Dupont Circle: Isabel and Larz Anderson’s Native American Collection” by Stephen T. Moskey and Isabel L. Taube. We want to take this opportunity to thank the Terra Foundation for its ongoing support.

We also want to highlight the article by Nancy Karrels, “The Dessins Denon: Reframing Art Spoliation and the Spoliator in Napoleonic France.” This article grew out of a paper presented at the 17th Annual Graduate Student Symposium in Nineteenth-Century Art cosponsored by NCAW’s parent organization and publisher, the Association of Historians of Nineteenth-Century Art (AHNCA), and the Dahesh Museum of Art. Dr. Karrels was the recipient of a Dahesh Prize for an outstanding paper, awarded by the Mervat Zahid Cultural Foundation, which is also a generous and longtime sponsor of Nineteenth-Century Art Worldwide.

Finally, we are happy to report that after a bit of a slowdown during the pandemic, scholarly productivity appears to have rebounded, and we are receiving more submissions to NCAW than ever, allowing us, despite considerable selectivity, to offer readers a broad and interesting assortment of articles.

Happy reading!
