Since 1973 the RKD has been the publisher of the quarterly periodical Oud Holland, the oldest surviving art-historical periodical in the world. It was founded by A.D. de Vries and N. der Roever in 1883 and has appeared virtually without interruption ever since.
This periodical, which is entirely devoted to the visual arts in the Netherlands up to the mid-nineteenth century, has featured thousands of scholarly articles, including numerous pioneering art-historical studies, by Dutch and foreign authors. Almost from its inception, the publication of archival information concerning Dutch artists has played an important rôle.
From 1885 to his death in 1946, the renowned art historian Dr. Abraham Bredius set a standard of excellence for Oud Holland. Many other well-known Dutch art historians have also served as editor of the periodical.
Oud Holland is published four times a year. Every volume is richly illustrated, has at least 200 pages, and comes with a comprehensive index of names. Articles are published in Dutch, English, French, or German. The editorial board is composed of Prof. Dr. Y. Bruijnen, Drs. E. Buijsen, Prof. Dr. R.E.O. Ekkart, Prof. Dr. C.W. Fock, Prof. Dr. V. Manuth, and F.G. Meijer.
