History and operations

The magazine was founded by James Clarence Hyde in 1902 as Hydes Weekly Art News and is published eleven times a year.[3][4] From vol. 3, no. 52 (November 5, 1904) to vol. 21, no. 18 (February 10, 1923), the magazine was published as American Art News.[5] From February 1923 to the present, the magazine has been published as ARTnews.[6]

The magazine's art critics and correspondents include Arthur Danto, Linda Yablonsky, Barbara Pollock, Margarett Loke, Hilarie Sheets, Yale School of Art dean Robert Storr,[7] Doug McClemont and Museum of Modern Art director Glenn D. Lowry.[8]

In April 2014, Milton and Judith Esterow, the magazine's owners since 1972, sold the publication to Skate Capital Corp., a private asset-management firm owned by Sergey Skaterschikov.[9] It was later revealed that Skate Capital was acting on behalf of the Polish company Abbey House, which renamed itself ARTNEWS SA.[1]


The magazine has won 45 awards in the last three decades, including the National Magazine Award for General Excellence, the National Headliner Award and the National Arts Club Distinguished Citation for Merit.[10][11][12][13][14][15][16][17]

On occasion, the magazine has been quoted by other media.

The magazine's offices are at 40 West 25th Street in Manhattan.
