It makes sense to think of travel as transformative, which is why most of us endeavor to spend vacations and leisure time in places other than our own home. Perspectives, it is obvious, are easily and powerfully impacted by other cultures, climates, languages, traditions, political perspectives, and aesthetic experience. Despite its apparent importance to human experience, relatively little scholarly attention has been paid in the discipline of art history to the phenomenon of travel and its impact upon the arts, in terms of travel as a broad and cross-cultural theme. It was the goal of this anthology to consider the significance of travel to visual artists, their patrons, and their viewers, by providing a study of travel in its varied and rich impact upon artistic styles, subjects, iconography, and interpretation.
