Heyer Schapiro Abroad - Letters to Lillian and Travel Notebooks
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This is an intimate and illuminating collection of personal letters & notebook pages from one of the 20th century's leading art historians. Meyer Schapiro (1904-1996) was one of the 20th century's leading art historians. This volume brings together a collection of letters and pages from his travel notebooks, filled with observations and drawings that illuminate the intellectual and emotional life of a young scholar committed to tracing the deep connections between art and culture. "Meyer Schapiro Abroad" focuses on the period between 1926 and 1927 when Schapiro was a graduate student touring the artistic monuments of Europe and the Near East. His letters - written to his future wife Lillian Morgan - bear intimate witness to this formative journey, and augment the visual and factual details he so painstakingly recorded in his notebooks with impassioned reflections on art and his encounters with an older generation of art historian.
