Getty Research Journal, No. 8

The Getty Research Journal features the work of established and emerging art historians, museum curators, and conservators around the world as part of the Getty’s mission to promote critical thinking in the presentation, conservation, and interpretation of the world’s artistic legacy. Articles present original research related to the Getty’s collections, initiatives, and research projects. Shorter texts highlight acquisitions and tools for scholarship under development at the Getty.
This issue features essays on early Deccan temple architecture; early modern Chinese glass; Edme Bouchardon’s anatomical guides; the sale of the paintings of the Duc d’Orléans in London in 1798; the influence of Alexander von Humboldt on Frederic Edwin Church’s The Heart of the Andes (1859); Italian architectural terracottas documented by Wilhelm Dörpfeld in 1881; dealer networks in the French art market between 1860 and 1920; the making of Nikolaus Pevsner’s Pioneers of the Modern Movement (1936); the safeguarding of European artworks at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art during World War II; correspondence between Lawrence Alloway and Ray Johnson on the art world as “network”; and George Brecht’s Footnotes exhibition at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art in 1969. 
Shorter texts include notices on Laudario of Sant’Agnese, portrait medals of Emperor Rudolf II, architectural drawings of San Pietro in Tuscania, the reattribution of the J. Paul Getty Museum’s Faun Holding a Goat, illustrated travel books of nineteenth-century India and the Mediterranean, and Harald Szeemann’s fictional Museum of Obsessions.
