De Gruyter’s arts list is distinguished by its exceptional quality and unusual breadth. In addition to our traditional strengths in early modern art history, provenance research, and visual culture, we are currently expanding our portfolio in the areas of transcultural studies,

object studies, and the art market. Our growing English-language list is particularly attractive for international academics. Since 2018, our portfolio has been further enriched through our acquisition of the renowned Deutsche Kunstverlag.
