1919 September vol. 2, no. 1

New title, The Art Bulletin, further identified on the cover and title page as An Illustrated Quarterly Published by the College Art Association of America.
Changes in format include a new decorative border for the cover and, inside, greatly enhancing legibility, each segment begins on a new page.

Changes in title, cover design and interior formatting were accompanied by a major change in content as the journal no longer included all papers presented at the annual conference, but instead selected a few for publication. The articles in this first issue of 1919 address a wide range of subjects (Medieval and Asian art, conservation, and camouflage), include the President’s Address to the Eighth Annual Meeting, and the first book review: JOSEPH CLARK HOPPIN of J. D. BEAZLEY, Attic Red-figured Vases in American Museums (pdf).   

These changes reflected the establishment of an Editorial Board of 7 members, replacing the 3-member Publications Committee.  The first Editor-in-Chief, David M. Robinson (served 1919–1921) was assisted by a Managing Editor, John Shapeley, and 6 Associate Editors (listing of Editors).

The journal continued vigorous engagement in advocacy as is evident in the President’s Address, The Future of the College Art Association (pdf), by JOHN PICKARD:
We must have a periodical of our own, issued at first quarterly, ably edited, with trenchant articles by strong men, with departments of news and notes on all questions of interest in art education.  No existing magazine is or can become what our cause needs.  No existing periodical will or can do the work that is incumbent on us to perform.  Our own editors must decide what we will publish and this organization alone must dictate the policy of our publication.

Ah! But you say, THE MONEY!
 . . . 

Another indication of concerns about cost is is the inclusion of the first advertisement (for the American edition of Worrell’s Forms and Problems of the Gothic).

1919 December vol. 2, no. 2

Content: Note (pdf) by Managing Editor John Shapley considered the continuation of scholarship during the war: 
The gradual resumption of the relations of peace has brought many surprises and perhaps not the least among them is the discovery that our enemies remained remarkably active in research throughout the war. Their published material of the past few years is now being received so rapidly that it is difficult to keep pace with it.  It seems useful, therefore, to call attention to a few studies of uncommon interest which might otherwise fail of the notice they deserve.
