By the late 19th century New York was one of the world's wealthiest and most dynamic cities.  It was also emerging as a leading centre for the arts, with fabulously wealthy entrepreneurs rivalling each other as much in the splendour of their collections as the lavish extravagance of their lifestyles. The legacy of their patronage can still be experienced at institutions like the Frick Collection, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and MOMA, while their tastes and enthusiasms shaped the development of modern art in Europe and America, from Impressionism to Cubism and Abstract Expressionism. 
 
Focussing on the 19th and early 20th centuries, this Art Pursuits Study Tour will introduce you to some of the highlights of a spectacular city - its buildings, parks, monuments and art collections.  We will encounter outstanding works of art by painters from both sides of the Atlantic: Homer and Millet, Manet and Cassatt, Hopper and De Chirico. In the process, we will trace the shifting relationship between artistic trends in Europe and America, achieving an entirely fresh perspective on the story of modern art.
