Getty Research Journal, No. 17

The Getty Research Journal presents peer-reviewed articles on the visual arts of all cultures, regions, and time periods. Topics relate to Getty collections, initiatives, and broad research interests. The journal welcomes a diversity of perspectives and methodological approaches, and seeks to include work that expands narratives on global culture.
This issue features essays on a method for using computational programs to enhance, measure, compare, and match historical papers; the Belgian Gallery, a commercial art gallery established in New York City in 1852 by painter Ferdinand de Braekeleer the Younger; the crossing of Spanish Republican refugees on the ocean liner SS Sinaia to Mexico in 1939; anthropologist Claude Lévi-Strauss’s writings on the Indian subcontinent’s emergence and demographic configuration as a region in the 1950s; and the genealogy of antimonuments in South Korean contemporary art through the works of Bahc Mo (aka Bahc Yiso), Suh Do Ho, and Oh Inhwan. Shorter notices include texts on Judy Chicago’s 1966 lipstick sculptures at the Rolf Nelson Gallery and architecture critic Ada-Louise Huxtable’s 1967 journey to the USSR and subsequent writings on Soviet architecture and its protagonists.
