Since Vasari the history of art has been formulated as a recounting of the artistic production of a nation. The myth of national superiority is combined in this way with the myth of artistic progress. What forms have the different national histories of art taken over the centuries? What were their aims? What is the current significance of these issues to the understanding of the evolution of art history as a discipline, and what is its relevance to contemporary artistic practice?
