Anthology: European Art Writing on the Art of the United States 1945-1990 is a special initiative of Art in Translation in collaboration with a panel of experts.

It focuses on the reception of US art in non-English language writings by art historians, philosophers, art critics and artists in Continental Europe between ca. 1945-1990. The final outcome will be a major anthology of key primary sources on US art, translated into English for the first time, augmented by scholarly introductions.

The project is funded by the Terra Foundation for American Art.
