Knowing where artists have been, whom they have seen, and at what point in their lives they have experienced new places is often a fundamental consideration for art historians. Connoisseurs can frequently map new stylistic influences upon an artist to journeys of some kind that he or she has taken. Whether as a traveling exhibition, or as travel undertaken by an artist, patron, or critic, few sources of inspiration are as compelling as the experience of a new culture or landscape. Would Nicolas Poussin have become famous, had he not traveled to Rome? Would Caravaggio’s story have been as compelling, had he been able to return to Rome, instead of passing tragically while trying to get home?
