Oud Holland is the oldest surviving art history journal in the world. Founded by Adriaan de Vries and Nicolaas de Roever in 1883, it has appeared virtually without interruption ever since. Supported by the RKD Netherlands Institute for Art History since 1972, it is entirely devoted to the visual arts of the Low Countries from 1400 until the early twentieth century and has featured thousands of scholarly articles, including numerous pioneering art-historical studies. From 1885 to his death in 1946, the renowned art historian Abraham Bredius set a standard of excellence for Oud Holland. Many other well-known art historians have served as editors of the periodical.

Oud Holland is published four times a year. Each volume is richly illustrated in full colour and has at least 200 pages. Since 2021, all articles are published in English.

Oud Holland is published by Brill in cooperation with the RKD Netherlands Institute for Art History.
