Colnaghi Studies Journal is produced biannually by the Colnaghi Foundation. Its purpose is to publish texts on significant pre-twentieth-century artworks in the European tradition that have recently come to light or about which new research is underway, as well as on the history of their collection. Texts about artworks should place them within the broader context of the artist’s oeuvre, provide visual analysis and comparative images.


Manuscripts may be sent at any time and will be reviewed by members of the journal’s Editorial Committee, composed of specialists on painting, sculpture, architecture, conservation, decorative arts, and the history of collecting, covering a wide range of periods and geographical areas.

Texts should be between 1,000 and 10,000 words (including endnotes) and include five to ten illustrations depending on the length of the article, with at least two images of the object itself and appropriate comparative images. Download the Colnaghi Studies Journal Style Sheet
