Event Description

From the Greek Parthenon to the great cathedrals of France, European monuments have inspired artists for hundreds of years. Named for the traditional trip of Europe undertaken by mainly upper class young men of means in search of art, culture, and the roots of Western civilization, this exhibition examines how the artists in the CRMA collection, both American and European, responded to the great sites of Europe.
