The Burlington Magazine is the world's leading monthly publication devoted to the fine and decorative arts. It publishes concise, well-written articles based on original research, presenting new works, art-historical discoveries and fresh interpretations.
The Magazine is both an enduring work of reference and a running commentary on the art world of today – as well as editorials on topical issues, it features authoritative reviews of all important books and major exhibitions, and the monthly Calendar is the best available guide to art events throughout the world.
The Magazine's advertising pages present a view of some of the finest works of art on the international market from both galleries and auction houses, together with announcements of museum and dealer exhibitions, art fairs and the latest art books; here too can be found notices of curatorial vacancies, services provided by insurers, conservators, restorers, shippers, financial institutions and luxury goods on offer.
