Subject Highlights


The complex cultural experience that the Grand Tour was can be grasped from imagological evaluations by male “tourists” faced with otherness on the Continent. Their female counterparts enjoyed more “frivolous” activities at home. In both cases an exciting intertwining of the arts and the sciences could be seen at work, with painting and music, mechanics and transport, fashion and landscape gardening claiming pride of place in one category or another’s preferences. This chapter suggests how the arts and the sciences respectively were deemed essential to the construction of personality in living the good life.
