Become an Author. Join a growing community

At TheCollector we tend to shake up the boring canon, as it were, and inject some intrigue, excitement, fun, and so on into discussions of art, artists and history published by authoritative authors.

Established in August 2019, in such a short time we have been able to attract a large international readership. Thanks in part to over a hundred verified junior and senior academics, we now have over 1 million page views per month. Sixty per cent of our readership is based in the USA, followed by the United Kingdom, Europe, Canada and Australia. Readership from emerging markets are also showing sustained growth.
