British Art Studies displayed on an ipad The sixth issue of the online journal British Art Studies is published today. Originating from the Invention and Imagination conference held at the British Museum between 30 October and 1 November 2014, this volume aims to explore contexts in which innovation occurred in medieval British art and architecture, to see what prompted the creation of new ideas, or the reappropriation, reworking, and re-presentation of old ones. The issue is edited by Jessica Berenbeim and Sandy Heslop.
