NORTHFIELD, Vt. — Norwich University’s Sullivan Museum and History Center presents “The Grand Tour: American Style,” a Lunch and Learn, from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Feb. 23 in the museum conference room.

Museum Education and Public Programs Curator Joseph Cates leads the session, sponsored by the Sullivan Museum and History Center’s Museum Associates. It’s free and open to the public.

Lunch will be provided for attendees; masks are required. Space is limited, but there will be a secondary viewing area in the museum gallery.

The session will also run virtually

Americans did not want to merely copy European traditions but instead learn from classical Europe to build a greater United States. Truman Seymour (Norwich Class of 1844) was one of the last Americans to take the Grand Tour. He traveled through Great Britain, France, Spain, Tangiers, Switzerland and Italy.

Cates has extensively researched American artists and expatriates in Italy during the 19th century including the Americans who created their own version of the Grand Tour. Since August 2018, Cates has been the museum’s education and public programs curator, developing public programs and working with Norwich University faculty to develop classroom programs. From 2015 to 2018, he was the museum’s oral history coordinator.

After the presentation, attendees can visit the current museum exhibit, “The World Through Their Eyes: The Art of William Brenton Boggs and Truman Seymour,”  to see scenes from North and South America, Asia, Europe and Africa — places Seymour visited and painted on his Grand Tour.

The exhibit will run through Dec. 16.
