ARTnews is an arts magazine based in New York, founded by James Clarence Hyde in 1902 as Hyde’s Weekly Art News. It is published 11 times a year.[2][3]

ARTnews covers art from ancient to contemporary times.[citation needed] It includes news dispatches from correspondents, investigative reports, reviews of exhibitions, and profiles of artists and collectors.

ARTnews publisher is Milton Esterow, a former New York Times culture reporter. Its executive director is Robin Cembalest.[4] ARTnews critics and correspondents include Arthur Danto, Linda Yablonsky, Barbara Pollock, Hilarie Sheets, Yale School of Art dean Robert Storr,[5] Doug McClemont and MoMA director Glenn D. Lowry.[6]

In April 2014, Milton and Judith Esterow, the owners of ARTnews since 1972, sold the publication to Skate Capital Corp., a private asset management firm owned by Sergey Skaterschikov.[7]


ARTnews has won 45 awards in the last three decades, including the George Polk Award, the National Magazine Award for General Excellence, the National Headliner Award, and the National Arts Club Distinguished Citation for Merit.[8][9][10][11][12][13][14][15]
