Plan your visit









From the crumbling ruins of ancient Rome to the clear light of Venice, Italy has fascinated travelers and artists for centuries. Visiting artists from across Europe made sketches to capture iconic views or preserve vivid memories, creating works saturated with atmosphere and beauty. Their Italian counterparts met the demand for tourist souvenirs by crafting their own masterpieces.



This exhibition features drawings and watercolors from the Getty Museum’s collection.
