A visit to Italy and the Grand Tour of Europe were key events in the lives of artists and patrons in the late-eighteenth and early-nineteenth centuries. This session examines the wonderful art that originated from painters who travelled to classical and ‘exotic’ locations in an age before photography, picturing them for a British audience.We will examine the oils, watercolours and drawings by Joseph Wright, Francis Towne, and Thomas Patch, and the stories behind their artistic odysseys. This fascinating afternoon session is directly linked to the artworks currently on display as part of our ‘Sense of Place’ exhibition which is showcasing important works from RAMM’s fine art collection.
