Artists Abroad

London, Paris, Venice, and Rome 1825-1925

A tour abroad exposed artists to new environments, historic architecture and monuments, and famous art collections. It also enabled them to receive instruction from continental masters and interact with daring avant-garde artists. “Artists Abroad: London, Paris, Venice, and Rome 1825-1925” features works on paper by important nineteenth-century American artists such as Mary Cassatt, Alvin Langdon Coburn, and James Abbott McNeill Whistler, among others, who pursued inspiration and education through travel to Europe's vibrant cities and cultural centers.
