      Forever Your Journey: Capturing the Experience of Faraway Places, 1700-1900

      How, and when, did the idea arise that one might capture the exhilaration of travel in a picture? This talk by Andrew Moisey, Professor of Art History and Visual Studies, will reveal the surprising origin of travel pictures and their transformation after the invention of photography. We will witness the romantic belief in a "world spirit" turn into a "world picture," captured in a frame yet expanding sublimely beyond it. This lecture is presented in conjunction with the Kroch Library's exhibition "World Picture: Travel Imagery Before and After Photography."
