Anne French focuses on the men and women from northern England who travelled around Europe on the Grand Tour and recorded their interests and experiences in letters and journals. She also discusses the numerous art treasures which they brought back to the great houses of the North, many of which have remained there and continue to enrich the region's cultural heritage. This book is the long-awaited companion volume to the millennium exhibition at the Laing Art Gallery in Newcastle.
