Welcome to JHNA, the electronic journal of Historians of Netherlandish Art.  Every summer and winter, the journal publishes issues of peer-reviewed articles that focus on art produced in the Netherlands (north and south) during the early modern period (c. 1400-c.1750), and in other countries and later periods as they relate to Netherlandish art.  Submissions are encouraged on painting, sculpture, graphic arts, tapestry, architecture, and decoration, from the perspectives of art history, art conservation, technical studies, museum studies, historiography, and collecting history.  Next submission deadline  - March 1, 2015.


  • The Turin-Milan Hours: Revised Dating and Attribution
    Carol Herselle Krinsky

    This article disputes the ownership of the Turin-Milan Hours by Duke John of Bavaria and proposes that the artists known as Hands F through K worked together in Bruges in one illustrative campaign circa 1450 that therefore did not include Jan van Eyck. DOI:10.5092/jhna.2014.6.2.1
