Yale University Art Gallery Bulletin 2012

An annual compilation of themed essays, exhibition highlights, and Gallery news, the Yale University Art Gallery Bulletin publishes original scholarship on works in the Gallery’s collection. Written by Gallery curators and outside scholars, contributions vary in length from extended studies to brief notes. The 2012 Bulletin examines Elihu Yale (1649–1721), the benefactor and namesake of Yale College. Three in-depth articles investigate Yale’s life, his reception and image in history and today, his collecting practices, and paintings in the Gallery and the Yale Center for British Art that relate to him. Seven shorter essays discuss notable works from the Gallery’s collection, both longstanding and newly acquired.
