Modern Painters is a monthly art magazine published in New York City by Louise Blouin Media. The magazine is published eleven times a year.

History[edit]

Louise Blouin Media is the third owner of the magazine, which was launched in England in 1987 by the art critic Peter Fuller,[1] who served as editor until his death in an automobile accident in 1990. Fuller's associate editor, Karen Wright, acquired the title from its original backers, who included Bernard Jacobson of Bernard Jacobson Gallery and David Landau, founder and then editor of the scholarly journal, Print Quarterly.[citation needed] Wright was retained for a short period in a consultancy capacity when the magazine was purchased by its present owners in the early 2000s and its publishing operation was brought to New York City.[citation needed]
