"Clara Sipprell (1885-1975) was one of America's foremost pictorial photographers. From her early years as a portraitist in Buffalo to the end of her seventy-year career, Sipprell remained faithful to pictorialist principles, creating beautiful, softly focused photographs of naturally lit subjects... Whether she was photographing leading figures in the arts and government, scenes near her summer studio in Vermont, the landscape and people in exotic locales, or serenely beautiful still lifes, Clara Sipprell maintained the highest standards of photographic artistry."--book jacket.

From the mid-16th century, northern Europeans justified travel to the south in terms of education. The English has previously travelled to Italy to study classics; now they travelled to learn Ital.
