Art of the United States in European Writing ca. 1945-1990 is a collaborative research and publication project, which focuses on the reception of postwar US art in the writings of European art historians, philosophers, art critics and artists between ca. 1945-1990. The outcome of this project is a major anthology that will make key European primary sources on US art available for the first time in English translation.
This project is a special initiative of the editors of the journal Art in Translation (University of Edinburgh) in collaboration with a panel of experts on twentieth-century art of the United States.
The project is generously funded by the Terra Foundation for American Art.
