Abstract : Circulation as a category for art history is unquestionably rooted in our contemporary context, especially in the culture of internet and the digital image, and the ever-increasing conversation between art history and visual culture. However, since the eighteenth century, circulation—understood as a multimodal phenomenon: spatial, temporal, commercial, international, intercultural, intermedial—has been a shaping factor in the history of the arts of the United States. This volume, the third in the Terra Foundation Essays series, seeks to map out some of the many planes and directions in which American art works and pictures have existed and produced meaning by moving, while keeping in mind the many failures and differences of circulation. Broad, transversal investigations focusing on specific objects of various scope, rather than a more formalized catalogue of media, genres, periods, or artists have been privileged in an effort to indicate rather than cover the endless diversity but also convergent pervasiveness of circulations.
