Art and artists in motion

A richly illustrated compilation about art and artists in motion, The Sense of Movement: When Artists Travel surveys the countless motivations and destinations that have defined the intersection of art and travel through art history. From Renaissance painters’ lengthy and often arduous journeys in search of new subjects and patrons , to today’s constant movement of artists through a globalized art world, the purpose and meaning of travel have been reconfigured anew in the imaginations of each successive generation of artists. Highlighting seventy iconic projects with insightful commentary and an abundance of color illustrations, this book conveys the excitement and meaning, as well as the artistic significance of artists’ journeys.

The Sense of Movement: When Artists Travel is published on the occasion of the BMW Art Journey, the global art initiative of Art Basel and BMW, which sends artists on journeys of creative discovery.
