The Art Newspaper is a monthly print publication, with daily updates online, founded in 1990 and based in London and New York City. It is published by Umberto Allemandi & Co. Publishing Ltd and is based on an original concept by the Turin publisher, Umberto Allemandi, who founded the first monthly newspaper, Il Giornale dell'Arte, in 1983. The concept is to cover news of the visual arts as they are affected by international politics and economics, developments in law, tax, the art market, the environment and official cultural policy. The publication is fed by a network of sister editions, with around fifty correspondents in over thirty countries. The network has editorial offices in London, New York City, Turin, Paris, Moscow and Beijing.

The Art Newspaper produces daily papers during the major art fairs, such as Art Basel and Frieze, and weekly podcasts on topical subjects. It is a campaigning newspaper, which has reported regularly on the trade in illicitly excavated antiquities, on damage to the heritage in warfare, and the maladministration and corruption that prevents Venice being protected from sea level rise, excessive tourism and the cruise ships.

Anna Somers Cocks OBE founded The Art Newspaper for Umberto Allemandi's publishing house in 1990. It was edited by Laura Suffield 1992-94, then by Somers Cocks again until 2002. She was succeeded by Cristina Ruiz 2002-2004, Jane Morris 2004-2016, Javier Pez 2016-17. Alison Cole is the current editor. Inna Bazhenova, a mathematician, engineer, collector, and the publisher of the Russian edition of the paper, bought The Art Newspaper, with the French, Russian and Chinese editions in 2014.

The Art Newspaper won the National Art Collections Fund prize in 1992.

Reviewers and commentators for the paper include: former Tate director Nicholas Serota, Performa founder-director RoseLee Goldberg; former Pompidou Centre director Jean-Hubert Martin; archaeologist Colin Renfrew; Venice Biennale curator Robert Storr, and artist Grayson Perry.
