Foundation of the European Society for Nineteenth-Century Art (ESNA)

The European Society for Nineteenth Century Art ('ESNA') is a working group of scholars, graduate students, and museum professionals based in the Netherlands whose research focuses on European art of the long nineteenth century. ESNA's aim is to provide a forum that promotes the exchange of ideas in this field, to support and encourage graduate research, and to enhance networking opportunities for participants. ESNA seeks to contribute to, and foster debate on, nineteenth-century art through its organization of an annual symposium, the invitation of visiting speakers, and co-ordination with other organizations and groups devoted to the study of the nineteenth century. ESNA is a working group formed under the auspices of the Dutch Research School for Art History (Onderzoekschool Kunstgeschiedenis).
