Travel is adventure. Not just the destination, but also the journey itself invites new, enriching experiences. This selection from the Spencer's Asian collection highlights depictions of travel, explorations of places unfamiliar to the artists and representations of artists' journeys. The selected works depict traveling figures, evoke well-known tourist destinations and routes, record artists' experiences of travel, and invite the viewer to experience "virtual" travel through interaction with the images.
