The Grand Tour through France and Italy became a popular journey made by the classically educated male members of the northern European ruling class to complete their education. This course will trace the origins of the practice and its development with a particular emphasis on the artistic experience of the traveller. Further areas including historical and social context will be discussed along with the specific goals of the travels. There will be one visit to the National Gallery which has an impressive collection of works connected to the Grand Tour.
