The next issue of MAJ is almost ready and will be published in the first half of 2013:
The Sight of Rome
The next issue of Melbourne Art Journal will take the form of an edited book devoted to Rome from the Middle Ages to the eighteenth century from a topographical perspective.
It has articles on Rome’s medieval fishmarket; the Via Appia from Porta Capena to S. Sebastiano; the Renaissance archaeological plan; the Forum Romanum and site a source for ruin-painters; Joshua Reynolds’ collection of Roman drawings; the Quirinal as expression of papal absolutism; Trinità dei Monti as urban theatre; the Tiber valley from Porta del Popolo to La Crescenza.
As with the last few issues of MAJ, the production will be in full colour, with the highest quality printing.
