Press Event: Fabulous Journeys and Faraway Places: Travels on Paper, 1450-1700

Today's travelers capture their memories with digital cameras, sharing them with friends near and far on the Internet. A new exhibition at the National Gallery of Art, 'Fabulous Journeys and Faraway Places: Travels on Paper, 1450 – 1700,' on view from May 6 through September 16, 2007, takes us back to a time when European artists depicted real and imagined places and distributed their marvelous images to an intensely curious audience in the only way possible—through prints on paper.
