Hear from Alexis Culotta, and look to the brilliant artistic souvenirs of the 18th century Grand tour that are currently part of the Art Institute of Chicago's collection.
Not unlike our desires today to bring mementos home from our journeys, these souvenir-shopping Grand Tourists helped to carve out nuanced artistic niches that are now considered some of the most important to have emerged from the era.
