The evolution of the grand tour : Anglo-Italian cultural relations since the Renaissance by Edward Chaney( Book )

27 editions published between 1998 and 2014 in English and held by 457 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Grand Tour has emerged as a subject of importance for those interested in exploring the historic connections between nations and their intellectual and artistic production. Although traditionally associated with the 18th century, when it became de rigueur for wealthy Englishmen to complete their education on the continent, the Grand Tour is here investigated in a wider context, from the decline of the Roman Empire to recent times. Travel to Italy was undertaken for many reasons. Pilgrimage to Rome was encouraged by the religious rulers who succeeded the emperors. Authors from Chaucer to Erasmus eventually mocked this custom, and the Reformation sealed its fate where their co-nationals were concerned, but the urge to travel proved too strong to be extinguished by a mere change of religion. From the mid-16th century, northern Europeans justified travel to the south in terms of education. The English has previously travelled to Italy to study classics; now they travelled to learn Ital
The Jacobean grand tour : early Stuart travellers in Europe by Edward Chaney( )

16 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 357 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Although the eighteenth century is traditionally seen as the age of the Grand Tour, it was in fact the continental travel of Jacobean noblemen that really constituted the beginning of this institutionalized phenomenon. As soon as James VI of Scotland united hsi crown with England's as James I, he signed a peace treaty with Spain which rendered travel to Catholic Europe both safer and more respectable than it had been since the excommunication of Elizabeth in 1570. The first post-Reformation ambassador, Sir Henry Wotton, was established in Venice and immediately began hosting his compatriots en route to Rome and beyond. This book examones the political and cultural significance of the encounters that resulted, focusing in particular on the scions of two of England's greatest, and newly united, families: the Cecils and the Howards. In doing so, it also examines the various ways in which Protestanst and catholics experienced the aesthetic and intellectual stimulation of continental travel and how their cultural experiences formed the essential ingredients in what became the Grand Tour. The cultural, political and specifically religious experiences of these adventurers had an effect on British history that is impossible to overestimate, with the influence most strongly evident in the art, architecture and furniture styles of the Jacobean period. ..."--Jacket
The evolution of English collecting : receptions of Italian art in the Tudor and Stuart periods by Edward Chaney( Book )

9 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 294 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book surveys for the first time the evolution of English collecting. Edward Chaney begins with the background history of European collecting, focusing in particular on Italy's formative role in this phenomenon, then sets English collecting in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries in context and draws together a unique collection of essays on the subject. The book deals with issues ranging from English collecting at the time of the Reformation, with all the tension that phenomenon produced in England's relationships with Rome, to the early Cecils and conflicts between English Protestantism and Catholic Italianate taste. The lives and achievements of great collectors and patrons are examined, and specific studies of the evolution of collections of paintings, sculptures, and prints in England are included as well. -- Publisher

A classical tour through Italy and Sicily : tending to illustrate some districts, which have not been described by Mr. Eustace, in his classical tour by Richard Colt Hoare( )

1 edition published in 1819 in English and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After the death of his wife, antiquarian Sir Richard Colt Hoare (1758-1838) left his only child in England and embarked on a series of journeys through continental Europe in pursuit of 'novelty, pleasure and information' in order to assuage his grief. At the end of the 1780s he deliberately diverged from the more conventional tourist trail in favour of a route through the then less-documented areas of Italy and down into Sicily, using classical authors as his guides. This work, first published in 1819, draws heavily on his daily journal entries to elucidate areas and points of interest that he felt had been overlooked in previous guides to Italy. Quotations from Horace, Tacitus and Pliny pertaining to ancient sites and practices are frequently included in Hoare's narrative, and he meticulously recreates the journey from Rome to Brundisium described by Horace in his Satires
