CASVA publications include collections of essays based on symposia and seminars, reference works, special publications, and an annual report, Center.

CASVA’s symposia have been published in the series Studies in the History of Art since 1984. Approximately 60 volumes have appeared to date. The Seminar Papers series has been published since 2005. Subjects are in many cases related to National Gallery of Art exhibitions; in others they are chosen for their current scholarly interest.

Several CASVA research projects have resulted in major reference works. Some of these represent publishing collaborations between the National Gallery and outside academic presses: the multivolume series Carlo Cesare Malvasia’s Felsina pittrice: Lives of the Bolognese Painters, edited by Elizabeth Cropper, copublished with Harvey Miller Publishers (volume 1, 2012; volume 13, 2013; volume 2, part 2, 2017); Keywords in American Landscape Design, edited by Therese O’Malley, copublished with Yale University Press (2010); and Guide to Documentary Sources for Andean Studies, 1530–1900, edited by Joanne Pillsbury, copublished with University of Oklahoma Press (2008; Spanish translation copublished in 2016 with the Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú). The Accademia Seminars: The Accademia di San Luca in Rome, c. 1590–1635 (2009), edited by Peter M. Lukehart, was published by the National Gallery of Art, which also hosts the accompanying website, The History of the Accademia di San Luca, c. 1590–1635: Documents from the Archivio di Stato di Roma.

Special publications include A Generous Vision II: Samuel H. Kress Professors, 1995–2016 and The Edmond J. Safra Visiting Professorship at the Center for Advanced Study in the Visual Arts: Reflections on the First Twelve Years.

CASVA’s annual report, Center, has been published since 1981. A complete archive of these volumes is available to browse online.
