Thomas Hedin, UMD art history professor emeritus, published an article in the Art Bulletin: Centennial Anthology. Hedin's article, "The Petite Command of 1664: Burlesque in the Gardens of Versailles," is included in the online collection of 32 best or most influential essays from the first century of the journal.

The editorial board of the Art Bulletin, the foremost art history journal in the United States, was commissioned to select the most outstanding articles from all fields
in the discipline over the past 100 years. Hedin's article was selected
from a collection of over 2000 articles.

Hedin began teaching at UMD in 1973 and retired from the classroom in 2006. Since then, he has held two fellowships at Harvard University (Dumbarton Oaks, Washington, D.C.); one in 2006 and the other in 2010. Hedin recently published a number of articles in French journals, chapters in French monographs as well as the book Diplomatic Tours in the Gardens of Versailles Under Louis XIV (Penn Studies in Landscape Architecture, University of Pennsylvania, 2008 in collaboration with Robert Berger). Hedin is also nearing the completion of a book-length study about the Premier Versailles, the 1660s, and the first decade of Louis XIV involvements with his country retreat in Versailles, before it became his royal palace.
