The first major study of the influence on American artists of sojourns in Italy from the 18th to the early 20th century, this catalogue presents fine reproductions and substantial discussions of some 100 paintings and watercolors on Italian themes by Copley, Bierstadt, Inness, Whistler, Sargent, Prendergast and many other noted figures, along with a selection of sculptures by such artists as Hiram Powers, Harriet Hosmer and Paul Manship. Five scholarly essays discuss the individual experiences of Allston, West, Cole and other artists on the Grand Tour; the communities of American sculptors in Florence and Rome; the appeal of Venice to American painters; and the representation of 19th-century Italy in the writings of Mark Twain, William Dean Howells and Henry James.
