When it first appeared in 1952, Connaissance des Arts was the first art journal to combine editorials and color reproductions. More than 60 years on, it is still covering the art of yesterday and today with the same passion, and harnessing the experience of the best journalists and experts. The magazine’s editorial line is deliberately open, giving readers an insight into art in all its forms and showcasing young talent and new trends alongside established artists. Exhibitions, auctions, fairs and shows: every month, Connaissance des Arts also brings its readers news from the farthest reaches of the art market. A number of themes are further developed in the special issue collection that boasts over fifty issues per year. Art lovers can now also keep up with art news at all times on the House’s website, a digital version of the magazine with extra photos and videos, and its mobile application.
