Summary
Watercolors, paintings, etchings, and drawings inspired by artists' visits to Greece. An anthology of depictions of Greece compiled from private and public collections around the world. The color and b&w images are framed by text which explores the changing attitude of travelers to Greece from medieval to modern times as well as the relationship of artists to Greece, with particular emphasis upon the German painters of the 1830s and their pupils. A number of the selections relate to the historic events surrounding the War of Independence. 9.5x11
