Congratulations #18: Hans Christian Hönes: “Die Geburt der Kunstgeschichte in England: Gottfried Kinkels Vorlesungen am University College London 1853”, in Kunstchronik 68.9/10 (2015), 487-491.

Congratulations to Hans-Christian Hönes on the publication of his article “Die Geburt der Kunstgeschichte in England: Gottfried Kinkels Vorlesungen am University College London 1853”.

The article presents a recent discovery, namely the manuscripts of the first ever lecture in art history at an English University. Hans Christian was able to identify Kinkel’s hitherto unknown draft manuscripts for this lecture among his papers archived at the University of Bonn.

For those of you who would like to learn more about this pivotal event in the history of British art history (and happen to be in London): Hans Christian is giving a Lecture on this very topic on November 19, as part of the UCL Art History Department’s Research Seminar Series.
