Travels of American artists across Europe in the 1950s and 1960s have only left traces in the archives. These trips represent however an important part of their education and life as artists. It is difficult to estimate precisely how many Americans were present in Europe at the time as the sources available are only fragmentary. The archives show how these artists approached this foreign space and and how valuable these trips were to them. They also reveal the importance of the Mediterranean countries in their experience of Europe and the new meaning these places took with the arrival of a younger generation at the turn of the decade.
