Fine Art Book Announcements News and Information That Means Business

New American Fine Art Magazine Announced

American Fine Art, a bimonthly magazine dedicated entirely to the market for historic American art, will debut this fall at a number of signature events, auctions, and exhibitions nationwide.

Unlike other fine art magazines, American Fine Art is unique in that it will preview upcoming exhibitions and auctions of historic American art rather than only review them after the show is over. Each issue of this beautiful magazine will feature previews of upcoming gallery and museum exhibitions coast to coast, previews of all the important historic American art auctions, expanded photographic essays of top collector homes, interviews with market personalities and lot-by-lot reporting of what is selling at auction houses and art fairs.

Furthermore, art market insights from curators, dealers, conservators and appraisers will keep collectors in tune with timely issues and topics relevant to this always-exciting market that is so deeply tied to American history, society and culture.

“We want to provide all the information one needs to not just keep up with the market for historic American paintings, but also to provide collectors with the information they need to acquire works for their collections,” says Joshua Rose, editor of American Fine Art. “We feel that our new magazine will enliven the market by focusing on the personalities and characters behind the scenes that make all of this happen.”
American Fine Art has already put together an impressive staff who will be working on each issue of the magazine. ARTFIXDaily founder and arts writer Julie Carlson Wildfeuer will provide the featured column each issue on timely topics that will include authoritative comments from scholars and dealers as well as auction histories for works being discussed. Carlson also will give insight on where collectors can purchase examples of the work discussed in each column. Other editorial contributors include Tylee Abbott, the great-great-grandson of American painter William Tylee Ranney; retired Arnot Art Museum director John O’Hern; J.N. Bartfield gallery director and playwright Jim Balistieri; award-winning interior designer Eric Cohler; photographer Francis Smith; and Rose.

“We want to focus on what is happening in the market,” says Rose. “We plan on covering gallery exhibitions coast to coast, auctions and art fairs. We want to know what work is on the market right now and how collectors can obtain pieces for their own collection.”

The magazine is published by International Artist Publishing whose titles American Art Collector and Western Art Collector have become the art collector’s “bibles” for their respective genres.

The first issue of American Fine Art will be available at the Boston International Fine Art Show and throughout American Paintings Week in New York City during all the important auctions, among other venues nationwide. The premier issue will include previews of major New York gallery exhibitions and auctions, a column on California art at the turn of the century and interviews with several key figures in the marketplace.
