First published in 1910 by the Author’s Bureau, The Lotus Magazine covers art history, composition, and individual pieces related to collections in New York City museums.  Edited by renowned author and music critic Gustav Kobbé, it features analyses on topics ranging from pottery and poetry to the performing arts. Lotus was briefly renamed Art & Life before merging with Art and Archeology in 1920.
