Why look at Old Masters? With Nicola Jennings
Nicola discusses the importance and power of Old Masters, what they tell us about human imagination, identity and emotion, and how they are essential to the continued flourishing of the arts.
The Grand Tour in Venice
The Grand Tour was a rite of passage, a tour round Europe taken traditionally by aristocratic young men as a means of rounding off their education before settling down to the more serious business of life. Its heyday was the eighteenth century and its goal was Italy, where many travellers acquired Old Master paintings and classical sculpture to adorn their town or country houses.
The present “Grand Tour Diaries” focus on Venice and the descriptions of visitors and residents over a period of three hundred years.
