Course Description:

The mobility of art objects and artists has been crucial to the development of visual art and the interchange of ideas. From the impact of pilgrimage and trade in transmission of style to the celebration of travel and tourism and the role of artists as wanderers and observers this course explores the ‘art of travel’ and the enduring importance of mobility
